Mario Jeckle

Stefan Tilkov,

Prof. Mario Jeckle, a very well-known German IT expert and DaimlerChrysler's OMG and W3C representative, has died in an accident. Although I met him in person only a couple of weeks ago, I have known his name and appreciated his work for years. This is truly a great loss.

He was 30 years old, and apparently died while trying to help some people involved in an accident.

Oh my, what a horrible, horrible loss. Mario was always as polite and considerate as could be in the few dealings I had with him while we were members of the XML Protocol WG together.
