Obituary for Prof. Dr. Jens Wünsche
With profound sadness we announce that on the 27.01.2021 Prof. Dr. Jens. Wünsche passed away after a long illness.
Jens Wünsche was an internationally recognized horticultural scientist who networked with colleagues around the globe and was very close friends with many of them. He considerably contributed to horticultural science and education of young researchers. Prof. Dr. Wünsche was known as open-minded, highly competent and as a person with high integrity and collegiality.
Despite his condition, the SHE symposium was one of his highest priorities even during the last days of his life. This effort of Jens Wünsche for the horticultural science community will be publicly acknowledged in the Opening Plenary. We are confident that the symposium will be successful and inspirational meeting for all its members, as Jens Wünsche had hoped for.
We will painfully miss Jens Wünsche, along with his unwavering optimism and his positive energy.
