I am really shocked to hear that! And suddenly in tears……
Jim was my mentor and also Huawei’s mentor in 802 area. he had been working closely with Huawei for the past years, and was always willing to help anytime we need.
After knowing this sad news, I quickly gave a call to our standard team leaders, and all of us are very sad, and Huawei will have one colleague to his funeral, bring all of our mourning to him and condolence to his wife.
Hope his sole rest in peace!
I'm sorry to report the death of Jim Carlo. Jim was a great friend, a great man, and a big part of the success 802.16. Jim was the Chair of the IEEE 802 Executive Committee when I first became interested in standards. He warmly welcomed 802.16 into the fold and was a tremendous mentor to me in getting the Working Group launched. Later, after moving on to other leadership roles in IEEE Standards (including President of the IEEE-SA), Jim became active as a participant in the 802.16 Working Group, holding a membership from 2005-2009.
Jim was a brilliant standardization builder, leader, and innovator. He was also as nice and warm a guy as you'll ever meet. I salute him.
