Remembering Józef Kucia

September 11, 2019

With great sadness we are announcing the passing of our friend, Józef Kucia.

Józef was a major Wine contributor with over 2500 patches since his first contribution in 2012. He was a highly talented programmer with a focus on Wine's Direct3D subsystem. Józef founded and led the vkd3d project and provided insight and guidance to the Vulkan working group. He also contributed to other open source projects including Mesa and Debian.

Józef was a regular attendee at the yearly WineConf. A man of few words, he was helpful and displayed a quiet kindness.
His skills attracted the interest of CodeWeavers and Józef joined their team in 2015. That allowed him to dedicate more of his time to Wine.

Józef died last month at the young age of 30 in an accident in the Jaskinia Wielka Śnieżna ("great snowy cave") in the Tatra Mountains in Poland. Caving was his passion.

Józef will be remembered with warm memories by those who worked with him. Our thoughts and condolences go out to Józef's family, friends, loved ones, and everyone else who grieves his passing.
