Dear PowerDNS friends,
I'm deeply saddened to have to report that Jorn Ekkelenkamp passed away
yesterday, at the tender age of 26. He died battling Leukemia. Jorn was also
known as Sjeemz on the #powerdns irc channel.
At ISP Services (later known as Hubris) Jorn was perhaps the very first
large scale user of PowerDNS, in addition to authoring the first PowerDNS
web management solution, PowerAdmin.
His belief in PowerDNS, and his subsequent deployment, paved the path for
much of what we have achieved over the years. PowerAdmin also helped people
use and migrate to PowerDNS. In addition, he frequently suggested, tested or
even funded new PowerDNS features.
Jorn will be missed very much. He was truly a PowerDNS man from the very
His girlfriend and family were aware of Jorn's contributions to the open
souce world and the Internet. If PowerAdmin has made your life or work
better, or if you've benefited from his other contributions to the PowerDNS
community, please drop me a message, and I'll relay to his family, who will
appreciate hearing about what Jorn meant for other people.
In addition, there will be church service Saturday morning - I can relay the
details if you want to attend.
I wish his family and everyone who knew Jorn lots of strength in dealing
with this tremendous loss.
