Friday, December 13, 2019Jan and Ann had been our next door neighbors since we moved to Millington in 2013. I think he took a liking to us because we had moved from Maine and he loved his summers there. He could talk about Maine and we understood. Also, I play the accordion, my mother in law played the accordion so yet another connection. He loved talking about his many journeys and never stopped telling me about his last trip to Norway. We already miss seeing him and Ann next door. Thank you Jan for your friendship and I'm sorry we never got to visit you in Maine.

Wednesday, December 11, 2019I had the privilege of working for Jan as a young engineer at Exxon Engineering. He was truly a remarkable engineer and a dear friend. I respected his opinion and guidance, both professionally and personally. I remember attending his retirement luncheon in 1993 and feeling so sad that he was retiring. In my 37 years at Exxon, Jan was the finest engineer I had the pleasure of knowing and working with on numerous projects. My belated condolences to his family

Saturday, November 30, 2019My condolences to the family. Jan was a remarkable and highly respected man. I had the pleasure of consulting on several of his startup projects for ER&E, as well as being a fellow Stevens Institute of Technology alumnus. Godspeed Jan!

Wednesday, November 27, 2019I was privileged to work with Jan in the Planning and Design Division of Exxon Research and Engineering. I was able to see what an impact Jan had in all he did: all those he worked with, all the projects he managed. He was a respected, admired, by a large cadre of very competent people working on the most complex of endeavors. I recall in his retirement party making the comment that Jan was a relentless taskmaster, and his daughter piping up.."that is so true!" Yes....in many ways Jan was a master of many tasks. I miss him.

Wednesday, November 27, 2019Jan was truly a remarkable person. We first met him in New Jersey when his wife Ann was a Realtor with Sue. But we became friends and got to know him during our visits to New Harbor, Maine. We would see them once a year, sit and visit and go to favorite restaurants and share details of our lives and children and grandchildren. But we had no idea Jan had such diverse background. We knew him as the retired Exxon engineer who had travelled the world doing amazing projects - but he never mentioned all his other achievements - we had no idea he was also a talented musician! We were privileged to know him and share his friendship.
