Obituary: Bruce Jenkins
Tuesday 18 December 2018
Bruce Jenkins (photo), a Reuters operations manager who worked on editorial systems in the United States, died on Sunday after a two-year battle with cancer. He was 56.
He was an advocate and friend of Reuters editorial for many years, Cormac Brady writes. As an operations manager at the Hauppauge data centre, he ensured editorial’s System77 maintained its reputation of always being available. He was also key in helping translate decades of operational excellence in the editing system to key features in its replacement, Lynx.
He was a superb steward of the news service in our products, whether it was an issue at curation or somewhere along the myriad of technology services supporting the products. Bruce was always in the thick of things helping do to what was needed. A funny and engaging soul, he will be missed. ■
