It’s April 19, 2018 and I just finished reading Dave Jowett’s obituary. The excerpt at right really struck a chord for me. In 1999 (Dave’s last year of teaching at UW-Green Bay) I experienced his exceptional generosity first-hand when I audited his “Design of Experiments” class. It was a tough class and two of us needed extra help. But my brain wiring issues and my classmate’s English fluency problems did not deter Dave in the least. Each time he repeated the course material for us he watched and listened to see how our brains were processing the information. If we hadn’t gotten to “a-ha”, he would adjust his delivery based on his observations and take us through it again.
