Obituary: Jürgen Engel

† Jürgen Engel, PhD – “A decent man has gone”

We are deeply saddened by the loss of Dr Jürgen Engel, who passed away after a longer illness in Belgium, his adopted home country.

Dear Dr Engel, dear Jürgen: We will miss you eternally – as a dear friend, colleague and role model. As someone, who always had a (waggish) smile on his face and whose door was open to everyone. With your professional expertise and your matchless congenial nature, you have enriched our team in Germany and abroad to the greatest possible extent.

Our deepest sympathies go out to your family for the loss of a very special person. We are extremely thankful for the time we spent with you. The gap you leave behind – be it privately or professionally – cannot be closed – and be assured: We will always remember you!

For many years, Dr Jürgen Engel has worked as expert for the Sparkassenstiftung für internationale Kooperation e.V. at Bonn headquarters and abroad. Some of his most important assignments were in Armenia and Georgia, introducing the German Sparkassen model in Greece and Ireland as well as working as resident expert for our project with the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union in St. Lucia. During all these assignments, Jürgen Engel represented the Sparkassenstiftung with outstanding success – as a person and as a highly skilled expert.
