It is with deep regret that we have to announce that our esteemed colleague Jason Reese, Regius Professor of Engineering and Royal-Academy-of-Engineering Chair in Emerging Technologies in the University of Edinburgh (UK), passed away on March 8, 2019. Prof. Reese was an authority in modeling, analysis and simulation of multiscale fluid systems. He received a great number of awards and distinctions, including fellowships of the Royal Society of Edinburgh and of the Royal Academy of Engineering. Jason was an active member of the ECCOMAS community, and as co-chair of last year’s ECCM-ECFD conference in Glasgow he was a driving thrust behind the conference’s success.

Jason Reese was a good friend to many in our community and he will be dearly missed. Our heartfelt sympathies go out to Jason’s family and loved ones.
