The AMS lost a dear friend and contributor this week with the passing of Jean-Charles Chebat (Professor Emeritus HEC-Montreal). Jean-Charles published nearly 400 articles and papers, which account for over 11,000 citations. Jean-Charles awards and recognitions are too numerous to mention but include being named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, SMA Distinguished Fellow, and the ESCP Hall of Fame. He was very active in AMS and was a frequent participant in conferences and the WMC, he served on the Board of Governors, as a Director, and as Program Chair. Jean-Charles will be remembered for his service, work ethic, and quick wit. He was adjunct faculty at Tehnion Institute in Haifa, Israel where he lived with his wife Claire and their children and grandchildren.
