Latest news


PNX has received this message for pnx.admin:

I have been asked to announce to this group that Jacob Sparre Andersen has passed away from stomach cancer on Sunday 16th of December 2018.

Jacob was admitted to hospital only a month ago, and despite his diagnosis, he retained his usual jolly and helpful self until the very end.

We hope that the many communities Jacob enriched will help preserve memories of Jacob, for his daughter Lea to find and treasure when she grows up.

The service will be held in Hørsholm Kirke, Denmark, on Saturday the 22th 13:00.

On behalf of Jacobs friends and family,

Poul-Henning Kamp
