It is with great sadness we write to inform you that our friend and colleague Tjin Yoe Li (36) from Service & Support died in a mountaineering accident in the French-Swiss Alps on Monday 31 July. His mountain climbing group was hit by a rockslide while climbing the Aiguille du Tour, north of Mount Blanc.
Tjin loved the outdoors and was an avid mountain climber. He was an experienced climber and a climbing instructor, and he spent almost all his free time outdoors, in the mountains, in the water, in the snow. Mountaineering was a true passion for him; he was meticulous about checking all his climbing equipment, and the safety of himself and his fellow climbers was always his number one concern. This was an event they could not have foreseen.
If you have ever reached out to XVR Service & Support, you will have spoken to Tjin – he answered all your phone calls and emails. You may also have seen him at the User Group Meetings, or he may even have visited you on-site to help sort out your set-up – Tjin had a solution to almost anything. He will be remembered for his dedication to supporting his colleagues and our users, his extraordinary response times, and his wealth of knowledge about our products. Tjin had been with XVR for 13 years and leaves behind a big hole in the Service & Support team. He was an integral part of XVR Simulation, and he will be greatly missed.
