Steve Janger, the founder of the Close Up Foundation (my workplace), passed away last Saturday.

He was a man of great vision and commitment, with a passion and a dream.  I didn't work closely with him, but I saw him as inspirational and devoted to the Foundation.  I didn't always agree with him on the details, especially as the world moved into the Internet age, but I respected him.

ETA:  C-SPAN did a lovely tribute to him.  Steve helped found a long-time partnership with C-SPAN, one that benefited us both greatly.

Ave atque vale, Steve.  I hope we continue to make you proud.

He lived a long and fulfilling life... he's got a fit place with the Mighty Dead.

Hail Steve Janger!
