As for Colombus.. his importance isn't really so much in discovering America (though that's obviously very important) as that he discovered it under the auspicies of the Spanish Crown and all that meant for the development of the American economy. Also see: The Colombian Exchange

It would have happened without them. That goes for both Gutenberg and Columbus.

I would suggest Isaac Newton. His influence spanned many areas of math and science and still remains at the core of scientific and technical thought today, 300 years later. Modern technological society probably would have developed with a different worldview without his ideas.

 Personally, I think that title belongs to Martin Luther.
