Jan’s journey with RTL4 in the Netherlands began in 1989, and he played a pivotal role in ENEX from its early days. His dedication to the coordination of our global network was instrumental in shaping ENEX into the worldwide organization it is today. Jan was not just a colleague; he was a driving force behind our shared mission.
Tragically, Jan’s passing occurred just days before his official retirement date from RTL4. It is understood that he suffered a heart attack, leaving us all in shock and disbelief. His recent retirement party was a poignant moment where he expressed his deep pride in his connection to ENEX and the pivotal role he played in its growth.
Many of us had the privilege of working closely with Jan over the years and attending our annual coordinators’ get-togethers, where he was known for his legendary enthusiasm and sense of fun. He had an incredible ability to bring joy to any gathering, making those moments unforgettable.
We will miss Jan greatly, not only for his professional contributions but also for the warmth of his friendship and the light of his personality. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and colleagues at RTL during this incredibly difficult time.
As we remember Jan de Boer, let us celebrate his life and the significant impact he had on ENEX. His legacy will forever be a part of our organization’s history, and his spirit will continue to guide us in our mission.
In honor of Jan, we will hold a remembrance gathering to pay tribute to his memory, and details of these arrangements will be shared soon.
May Jan de Boer rest in eternal peace, and may his memory continue to inspire us all.
With heartfelt sympathy,
[Your Name] ENEX Community
