Nick Jones, the founder and lead developer of PHP-Fusion passed away on January 4th, 2011. All of us here as well as those who knew and worked with him in the wider open source community are deeply saddened by his loss. He was a truly genuine talent and great teacher. Many people who are now developers in their own right owe their skills to Nick's attitude to sharing everything he did.

Dear Nick,– meltamps
You made a lot of works while you are here, you helped many people with their works, their burden lessened including mine. I made many applications using this CMS, because my priority is functionality (custom pages) before the design, but right now , the design is already intact and ready to deploy after attaching my custom pages. And to the administrator, I inform you that I am conducting a research study regarding this CMS. For me this is the best CMS for corporate applications.
Thanks a lot Nick for everything you've done for us. PHP-Fusion will live forever. PHP-Fusion will love you forever.– Kevin Maschke
RIP Nick Jones.– Reef

Rest in Peace Nick.
I was first introduced to CMSs back in 2007 and php-fusion was the first CMS I interacted with. I have not been active with php-fusion in months and only discovered that Nick passed on. He was a Guru and will be greatly missed.– lyton
