Very sad news for the DIY community. May his legacy live on.
My condolences to his friends and family.

Use Science to design your speakers and they will sound like a piece of Art...

My condolences to his family. I hope they are aware of what kind of a person he was. I always saw his contribution in forums. He will be dearly missed.

More updates on the news:

"Two Fiat Chrysler workers die from COVID-19 in US

By Marcus Day and Shannon Jones

25 March 2020

According to a United Auto Workers spokesman, two US Fiat Chrysler workers have died as a result of the coronavirus infection. One of the workers worked at the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant (SHAP) north of Detroit and the other worked at the Kokomo Transmission Plant (KTP) in Indiana. It was not reported when the workers died.

According to posts by the family on Facebook, the worker who died in Kokomo was Jeff Bagby, a mechanical quality engineer. He died after being hospitalized with pneumonia on March 9. Bagby was a well-liked and respected figure in Kokomo. Following his death, hundreds of friends and co-workers posted tributes to Bagby on Facebook.

The name of the worker at Sterling Heights Assembly was not available at the time of this posting. Three workers at FCA have now died as a result of COVID-19. A technical worker at FCA headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan previously passed away due to the infection."

He is one of the reasons I came to DIY speaker building. I stumbled upon one of his designs over 10 years ago. I went to Axpona last year and ran into him. I belted out 'Jeff, how are you doing' like we were old friends. I felt like we were friends since I had been following his work for years. He was very generous with his time even though he had no idea who I was. A generous, kind man that was willing to share his knowledge with anyone. He will be sorely missed. RIP.

First I heard he "just" got an infection after his kidney operation, today I heard it was COVID-19...

Jeff will be missed. I learned so much more from him than just speaker stuff.

I wouldn't be in this hobby if it weren't for Jeff. That combination of kindness, open-ness, decency, educator, and innovator is so so so rare.

He was a huge contributor at PETT before the forum rules changed, helping so many understand the basics. And how he managed to make a seemingly complicated design have a so simple crossover.. a genius at crossover design and speaker design in general

Terrible news

May the diy community make good use of Jeff's contributions, never forgetting his wisdom and modesty.
Hoping this man's ideas will have a Continuum...

Condoleances to his family
