Jonathan Schultz

The original author of Dirvish, jw schultz, died in March 2004. He was a frequent contributor to the Perl, Rsync, and Kernel mailing lists. His consulting company was at As we learn more, we will memorialize him here.

jw did not like to be known as "Jonathan". He was an intensely private person. For example, we have no adult photos of him, and he admonished others in email to not use anything other than "jw".

However, his family and the friends of his youth knew him as "Jon" or "Jonathan". These pages are intented primarily for the benefit of the living, and people trying to find him using Google. jw no longer needs anonymity.




Lissa Halls Johnson sends the eulogy that she read at JW's funeral. Very moving
