Almost none of you know Charlie DeJong. I worked with Charlie when we were both at Microsoft. He had an interest in the environment and growing up in Wenatchee in Eastern Washington he grew more interested in data centers as they were being built in his hometown area. Charlie and I took a drive out to Eastern Washington 5 years ago to look at some data centers to prepare him for some job interviews. Unfortunately, Charlie did not get job so he is an unknown in the data center industry.
Just now I heard through a Facebook post that Charlie past away this weekend.
Charlie did get to spend the last 4 years working on something that he can be proud of.
