In Memoriam Gerald S. Casilli


Gerald S. Casilli

General Partner in Memoria


We are sad to announce the passing of Gerald S. Casilli, founding partner of Rembrandt Venture Partners.

Jerry founded Rembrandt in 2004 and led many investments in key technology companies in Silicon Valley, including IronPort, Xactly Corporation, and InsideView Technologies. He was a valued mentor to numerous CEO’s over his investing career, a role he cherished. Jerry was our voice of reason and his good-natured disposition coupled with his strong values of honesty and integrity were present in all interactions with him. Before founding Rembrandt Ventures, Jerry held Chairman and CEO roles at IKOS Systems where he was instrumental in that company’s Initial Public Offering and subsequent merger with Mentor Graphics.

Jerry was also a founding member and general partner of Trinity Ventures and of Genesis Capital where he led investments in Identix Corporation, Network Resource Corporation and Keynote Systems. He brought his experience as founder and CEO of Millennium Systems to those firms and began his role as mentor to executives in Silicon Valley. He was a valued member of the Board of Directors of over twenty companies, both public and private, including NASDAQ companies Evans & Sutherland, Cepheid Systems, Ikos Systems, Identix Corporation, Keynote Systems and Xactly Corporation.

Jerry was also a founding member of the Band of Angels, an organization that actively invests in early-stage companies. He was also a member of the World Presidents Organization and a former member of the Young Presidents Organization.

Jerry loved the golf course and held memberships to numerous golf clubs in the Bay Area and one in Palm Desert. He was a long-time member of Sharon Heights and later in his career he could be found there on a Friday morning enjoying the course and friendships. But Jerry was most proud of his family, and we express our deepest sympathies to Jeanne, his wife, their two children and two grandchildren.
