No response from Staff re suggestion to have full profile shown of deceased members? Jun 24, 2019

or, as stated earlier, at the very least a short version of their profile with the salient facts, and a summary of their contributions to the site (with appropriate links).

Many people have agreed with this request. Surely it should be possible to see the profile when clicking on it, rather than just an "In memorium" note simply giving the date of death?

Yes, contributions to forums and to Kudoz remain visible but it would be nice to have the profile visible too so that new members will get some sense or inkling of the person, especially one such as Jack RIP who was a translator for such a long time and was obviously very highly respected in the community, particularly in his language pairs.

A brilliant example of professionalism Jul 20, 2019

My condolences to Jack's family...

I have never meet Jack personally, but we communicated on several occassions, and I will always remember his helpful answers, well thought through comments and intelligent hunour.

Jack Doughty has always been — and will be — an example of professionalism and commitment to excellence in the profession: competent, knowledgeable and always ready to help and generous in sharing his solid experience.

My deepest condolences Jul 28, 2019

Browsing through the forum, I just found out that Jack has passed away. Although haven't met him in person, it was a real pleasure and privilege knowing him through the Proz community, namely through KudoZ and the forum. May his soul rest in peace.
