I don't frequent these foums much anymore but I had some news I felt needed to be delivered.

 

The Inventor community lost a great resource and advocate.. Dennis Jeffrey passed away this last weekend.  I had the pleasure of meeting Dennis several times and spoke with him on the phone on numerous occasions. He was a great guy and will be missed.

WOW ... he will be deeply missed. :mansad:

I would talk to him via email on occasion and really enjoyed his love for everything Inventor. He was a great resource.

Any idea how it happened? He was still pretty young (for an old guy)

WOW indeed.

 

Here's to you, Mr. Jeffrey. Thanks for the seemingly limitless extraordinary help you selflessly gave. You will be missed, Sir.

 

Again, thank you so much for helping me, directly or indirectly, became a better CAD person.

 

May you rest in peace.

 

 

Mauricio

Shocking news.

I've worked with him on several projects.

He had a real passion for his work.

A reminder than any day could be our last.

RIP

I am really sad to hear this. Inventor has lost an ardent supporter and Inventor users a great resource. He has helped me finding models for some projects, and just last month I promised him that I would think about contributing to his magazine. May he rest in peace.

Wow, is an understatement.  I never formally met him, but I took his class at AU last year, and sought his advice many times via this forum.  His knowledge will be missed by those of us who knew him only in this format.  Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.  RIP Dennis.

No way!!!!

I can't wrap my head around this shocker.

Dennis helped me out in so many ways over the years, participated in numerous classes of his, had him do a few presentations,etc.

 

This discussion group will surely miss his input.

 

Wow....this will take a while to sink in.

 

Dennis, thank you so much for everything.
