Charles Chuck Geschke (1939-2021)

Charles Chuck Geschke, who lived in the San Fransico Bay Area suburb of Los Altos. Died at the age of  81 on 16th April 2021, Friday, the company said.

“ This is a huge loss for the entire Adobe community and the technology industry, for whom he has been a guide and hero for decades, ” Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen wrote in an email to the company's employees.

A Little Insight in Geschke’s life-

- Graduated with Ph.D. in    Computer Science  in 1973. - Worked with Xerox, where he    met, John Warnock,  his best    friend, and future Adobe Co    founder. - They Launched Adobe in 1982    in Warnock’s  garage, naming    the company after the Adobe     Creek that ran behind    Warnock's home. - Adobe’s first product, a    printing language  named    PostScript, was launched in    1983

- Apple partners its hardware      with Adobe's  Software. - Adobe has developed much    leading software  used by    creatives, to this day,      including  Photoshop,    Illustrator, Acrobat, and    Premiere  Pro. - Geschke was awarded the    National Medal of    Technology and Innovation    in 2008 by  president  Barak    Obama.

But Geschke's imprint on technology will not soon be forgotten.   The world has lost a great, innovative mind, and as Warnock told Adobe's current CEO Shantanu Narayen, "I could never have imagined having a better, more likable, or more capable business partner. Not having Chuck in our lives will leave a huge hole and those who knew him will all agree."

Thank You.
