Edmund Poh, Molex
At the time of his passing in February of 2019, Ed was a member of the JEDEC Board of Directors and had served in this role since 2008. He was also an active committee member and valued technical contributor. Ed also served as chair of JC-11 and JC-11.14 during his tenure at JEDEC.
Ed was a proud University of Maryland graduate and was with Molex LLC for over 25 years. He was an outstanding engineer, a good tennis player and a world class scuba diver. He was a Washington football fan and enjoyed a cold IPA.
JEDEC is grateful for Ed’s nearly fifteen years of service to the association, for his technical expertise and leadership, and most of all, for his friendship. Ed will be deeply missed by all who had the good fortune to know him, and will be remembered as a charming, knowledgeable and highly respected friend and colleague.
