I was deeply saddened by the news of Jen’s passing. My heart felt condolences to the Augustiny family.





  1. RIP Jens. He was such a passionate guy. Loved showing off Switzerland. Drove me clear across the country just to spend time together. I know he just ran a SNoUG recently, hopefully with some lasting memories for all.

  2. Christian Petters says:

    I would like to repeat here what I said before. RIP und lebe wohl Jens.
    Als Mitglied der deutschsprachigen atnotes Community habe ich viel von Jens und seinem reichen Erfahrungsschatz gelernt.
    You will be greatly missed!

  3. How sad. I knew Jens from several occasions he was that was is called “Urgestein” in german, an elderly, well respected member of the community.

  4. I remember Jens from the very early days of the Lotus world online. A charming man, and a real “do-er”. My condolences to his family.

  5. RIP Jens, a big loss for the community.

  6. After almost 10 years of knowing him from the atnotes forum only, I finally had the chance to meet him in person at Connect ’13 where he immediately recognized me although we’ve never met before. I’ll always remember his all-over-the-face-smile when he left the booth after our short and funny talk.
    Farewell Jens, you’ll be missed!

  7. Pete Janzen says:

    Simply put, one of the nicest guys I have met in the community. My sincere condolences to his family.

  8. Jens was one of the first people I chatted with in the old BP Partner Forum. Always kind words. He was also the first to support me through some medical issues years ago. I am sure that the Swiss chocolate did not hurt. Thoughts and prayers for his entire family.

  9. Very sorry to hear about Jens, RIP…

  2. […] too early passing of Tim Tripcony just a few days ago, as well as as the loss of Rob Wunderlich, Jens Augustiny and Kenneth Kjærbye in just a short period of time. All of those members of the Lotus Community […]
