In Memory of Jerry Kaczynski (1964 - 2013) Dr. Stanley M. Hyduke, Aldec Founder/CEO Like(1) Comments (14) It is with great sadness that we must share news of the passing of a dear friend and a brilliant man, Aldec Research Engineer, Jerry Kaczynski. Jerry is survived by his parents. He was born in Poland on April 15, 1964. Jerry’s breadth of knowledge ran deep. He possessed over 20 years of experience in language and tool training, technical writing, and research engineering. Jerry held Bachelor and Master Degrees in Electronics from Warsaw University of Technology, Poland. He served his role as Aldec's Research Engineer with deep conviction, sharing his knowledge and research in the form of a vast treasure trove of papers and trainings. He was an IEEE and Accellera committee member, and a staunch advocate for engineers through his involvement in the development of industry standards for VHDL, Verilog, PSL, SystemC & SystemVerilog. The unexpected loss of Jerry has left our team with broken hearts. As friends, it is hard to accept that we will never hear his hearty laugh echo in our office halls again. As colleagues, we can’t help but note that his passing has left a tremendous void in the EDA industry.
