With deep regret, we announce the passing of Nicholas Xenos, a man who was more than a colleague, but also a dear friend. He passed away suddenly on September 30th, 2015, and was laid to rest on October 6th surrounded by family and friends. Nicholas was the Global Manager at Juniper Networks Academic Alliance, and worked closely with the Global Engineering Deans Council as a Corporate Partner.
On September 22nd, during the 2015 IFEES Awards Dinner in Florence, Nicholas honored two SPEED students who had saved his life the previous year during WEEF-GEDC 2014 Dubai. He spoke of the importance of family and life, and appreciating the moments one has because we do not know if we will be given that opportunity tomorrow, bringing the audience to tears with the heartfelt gratitude he expressed towards the two students.
Nicholas will be dearly missed and will be an irreplaceable GEDC partner. To read more about his life and to leave a memory, please visit his tribute page.
