    I'm very sorry to inform you that yesterday, October 4th, the man everyone knew as CJ passed away after a month long sickbed.

    Obituary:
    http://www.mensenlinq.nl/mensenlinqads/medium/NDC/20101006/14271442.jpg

    For the past few years, CJ ran an ATI topic over at tweakers.net which was THE source of information on upcoming ATI products.
    link (in Dutch.)
    Condolences topic @tweakers.net (Dutch, registration required)

    CJ was working as a Technical PR Officer at MSI since last year where he was heavily involved with Overclockers and events like Digifest and met a lot of you at CeBit and Computex.
    MSI will be releasing an official statement later today, since he was heavily involved with media, customers and end-users around the world.

    He was a great, knowledgeable and humorous colleague and I got to know him a lot better as a friend.(Up to a point where we discussed work more than I spent time with my wife, yes I know, unhealthy.) We are all devastated by the loss and our thoughts go out to his family and friends, who will surely miss him.

    Much like ChrisRay earlier this year, both shared a healthy interest for hardware and both rather talked about video cards than think about going to the hospital to recover.
    His last public message on Facebook confirms that much:
    I, personally, will always remember CJ and ATI as a two-unity and I will remember him every time I see Radeon somewhere.

    I'm devastated,

    Dennis

    This stuff is frightening. I did not know him, but I definitely appreciated his contribution to threads.

    Wow, that's terrible news, I was hoping it wouldn't end up like that :cry:

    Collective B3D condolences go out to everyone who knew him, industry or otherwise, especially his family, neliz, and his extended family at ATI and MSI. Rest in peace, dude.

    Yes, he was CJ over here too, he's also known as T-Spoon on other forums like Rage3D.

    It's a sad day for those who were close to him, and for video hardware fans.

    Goodbye CJ, thank you for sharing your enthusiasm with us for us so long.

    That's terrible. Didn't know he was sick. Seemed like a nice guy. 34 years old, that's scary.
