It is with deep sadness that we write this post. Unfortunately, we learned that we lost one of our most valued Qlik Community members, Gysbert Wassenaar. Gysbert passed away this past weekend. He was not just a member of our Community; he was a Qlik Luminary Alumni, which means he was part of an exclusive program that brings together the best and brightest customers and enthusiasts in the Qlik ecosystem. Most currently, he was part of our Qlik Community MVP Program. As a Qlik Community MVP, he was one of 32 members that went above and beyond answering questions, moderating, and dedicating his time to helping other community members. As a matter of fact, he posted almost 21,000 times! That’s how much he wanted to help! We even featured Gysbert last year; that’s how incredible he was. We were so lucky to get to know Gysbert and knew that we could always depend on his expertise and participation. He will be profoundly missed in our Community.

Words from his family:

It is with great sadness that we must announce that Gysbert Wassenaar has passed away. Our dear, smart, and humble colleague and friend was a pillar of strength to us as well as within the international Qlik Community. Feel free to share this message with other acquaintances. Your memories, replies or condolences will be greatly appreciated.
