This morning we have some sad news to share that CodeWeavers announced last night, as Wine developer Józef Kucia has sadly passed away.
This August, Józef took an extended vacation to the Tatra mountains to explore the longest and deepest cave in Poland, Wielka Sniezna ("Great Snowy Cave"). While exploring, he and another member of his group of six became separated by an unexpected flow of water. Despite an extensive rescue operation, Józef and his companion died.
Words cannot express the sorrow and heartbreak we feel. All of us at CodeWeavers extend our heartfelt condolences to Józef's family, friends, loved ones, and everyone else who grieves his passing.
We take some solace from knowing that Józef died doing something he loved, with full understanding of the risks involved. We admire the courage and ambition he displayed in pursuing his passion. While his life ended far too soon, it was a life well and fully lived.
