Assured Wireless Founder, Chairman and CEO Thomas R. Bilotta passed away Sept. 18 at the age of 63.

Bilotta founded Assured Wireless in 2016 with three longtime colleagues and led the development of high-power wireless communications technology for public sector service providers and first responders including police departments, fire and rescue agencies and a wide spectrum of emergency services organizations and critical enterprises.

“Tom’s passion and vision for creating Assured Wireless was contagious, and it was that same contagious passion which allowed him to attract an extraordinarily talented and dedicated team,” said John Goocher, the newly-named president and CEO of Assured Wireless. “Please know that Tom’s vision is shared by the entire family at Assured Wireless, and we are more committed than ever to deliver life-saving wireless solutions to the industry.”

Over a technology career spanning nearly four decades, Bilotta served in a variety of engineering, management and executive roles within wireless, networking and communications sectors at companies such as TurboNet Communications, Malibu Networks, TV/Com Internationational, MultiSpectra Engineering, CenterComm, Rainbow Network Systems, Nextivity and Public Wireless. Assured Wireless was the fourth company that he founded or co-founded.

Bilotta spent the first eight years of his career at San Diego’s Linkabit as an engineer and product manager, working on sophisticated satellite communications and networking projects for commercial and military customers. Assured Wireless is one of dozens of technology companies in the San Diego region that have been founded by Linkabit alumni.

Bilotta earned a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering at Carnegie Mellon University; studied digital signal processing at the University of California, Irvine; and later earned an MBA degree in entrepreneurship from San Diego State University.

Due to COVID-19, private services will be with a celebration of life next year.
