It is with deep regret that I learned of the death on 11 December 2018 of Jan Hallenberg SM5DJZ. Jan had served as IOTA checkpoint for Scandinavia from 2002 until November 2017 when he had to step down for health reasons. Throughout these years he carried out the role of checkpoint conscientiously and with great care. He looked after the interests of his customers in Scandinavia well beyond what might be expected of a checkpoint. He gave back so much. At all times he showed himself to be a passionate supporter and friend of the IOTA Programme and with 1096 credits on the database reached the highest levels of performance himself. That kind of score can only be reached with real dedication. A true IOTA enthusiast in every way he will be sadly missed. On behalf of the IOTA Community I should like to express heart-felt thanks to our friend Jan and pass sincere condolences to his family. Rest In Peace.
