Professor Jakob Krarup, 1936-2023 [EURO President 1989-1990; EURO Distinguished Service Award Laureate 2009]

Egon Balas

We are deeply saddened to announce that Professor Jakob Krarup passed away on 26th February 2023 at the age of 86. Jakob was well known to many people in the EURO community as a former President, EDSA laureate, supporter of many key individuals during their early OR career, and regular attendee of EURO and IFORS conferences and ESWI events over many years. Always supported by his devoted wife, Karin, Jakob enjoyed attending the EURO conferences in particular, to meet up with lifelong friends and to make new ones. It is particularly sad that he will not be there for the EURO conference at his beloved DTU in Denmark in 2024. Jakob will not only be missed for his academic contributions, but for his unique character, generosity and humour. Also, his sense of history: EURO History, family history, Danish history, and always welcoming each new year with a mathematical reflection on the significance of the number of the new year. Our thoughts and condolences go to his family at this time.
