AmCham Slovakia


Obituary notice

It is with great sorrow in our hearts as we hardly accept the loss of a friend, renowned IT expert, associate professor and a true supporter of a business-academic cooperation – František Jakab (64).

Being an inherent part of the Technical University in Košice since 1984, František specialized in computer networks and authored more than 200 publications. IT personality of the year 2006 in Slovakia, František played a critical role in driving several successful initiatives, including the IT Fitness Test. Received the AmCham award in 2010, František served in his capacity of the chair of the AmCham Business-Academic Committee for more than 15 years. Unfortunately, he could not take over the thankful letter for his longtime unwavering support in person just last week.

Rest in peace, František, you will truly be missed by the entire community.
