Farewell Shaun Pezeshki

The time has come to say good-bye to one of our amazing team members. Shaun Pezeshki, one of our Web developers, is leaving to go do great things in Washington DC. It’s never easy to say good-bye, especially to someone who has been with us for five years and has impacted the university as much as he has.

I’m a huge advocate of being a teaching department, and Shaun is a shining example of that. He started as a student assistant in his Junior year and worked his way to a full time role. During his time in the department he has done almost every job we could throw at him, from being the “Web janitor” and cleaning up massive amounts of old code to pushing the limits of our CMS, mobile and digital signage templates. He has truly explored every aspect of being a Web professional and I hope we have prepared him well for his next adventure. I can also confidently say that Shaun has earn every bit of responsibility and respect that he has. He is going to be truly missed.

A snapshot of Shaun’s contributions

It would take days to talk about everything Shaun impacted but here are a few of his most recent projects that he was the main developer on:

What does this mean for the university?

It means that we’ll be looking for a new full-time Web developer to join our team soon. The posting should be up in the next week or so, stay tuned.

    Nick, what a wonderful, warm tribute to your colleague Shaun Pezeshki. I really loved seeing Shaun’s recent projects and how happy he looks in his photo.

    Also, I attended the Formy informational meeting yesterday. It sounds great!
