COPENHAGEN, Denmark - Yesterday on social media the sad news broke another member of our mahjong community passed away: Danish player Jesper Willemoes Hansen.

After the initial shock several players extended their condolences on social media addressing Jesper's kindness and helpful nature, and reminisced about precious moments they shared together.

Tina Christensen (Vice President EMA, President Mahjong Danmark): "Jesper developed the Mahjong Tournament Organiser software that we have used in Denmark since the OEMC 2007 in Copenhagen. He was a certified MCR referee and he was an active and accomplished player traveling to tournaments in Europe and China. Jesper was friendly, kind and much loved. Our thoughts go to his close family and friends, particularly his wife, Rie."

The staff of Mahjong News extends their sympathies with his family, relatives, and friends, wishing them strength in these sad days.
