It is with great sadness that we are sharing the news that Shaun Ellis passed away on May 1st. As many of you know, Shaun has been battling cancer for a long time and was a true fighter.
Shaun came to ESC Spectrum in 1999. He started in the Data Controller support group, moved to software support, became a software support manager, and then a product manager.
Shaun is leaving behind his beloved family, including his wife Shanna, his son Cameron (18), and his daughter Addison (16). Our hearts are truly broken by our loss and the loss that his family is experiencing. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.

Almost 25 years ago Jim Rutherford hired Shaun as a technician to work on the 8816/8832 I/O cards and Motherboards. Jim and I went over the Motherboard checkout with Shaun one time, and he immediately started working on and repairing the boards on his own with little or no supervision. Shaun would learn something one time and he would figure out a better way to perform the task. I remember we had a box of “Dog Boards” (unrepairable Motherboards) on the shelf left over from the previous technician. When Shaun had slow time, he would grab those boards and work on them. He ended up repairing almost all those Motherboards deemed unrepairable. Both Jim and I were extremely impressed with Shaun and his technical skills. Trust me - Jim is not easily impressed with anyone.
