Thank you for visiting this memorial site for J.D. Falk.
J.D.’s professional focus was email technology and anti-spam systems and policies. His life was devoted to his passions: writing, music, travel, volunteerism, charity, culinary delights, and so very much more.
He had a long and storied career, most recently employed by Return Path Inc. as their Director of Internet Standards & Governance, beyond which J.D.’s boundless energy made him an industry leader; as a founding member of the Coalition Against Unsolicited Commercial Email (CAUCE), the Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group (MAAWG), and publishing standards with the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). Quite simply put, J.D. worked every day to make the world a better place.
Mostly, J.D. Falk was a Son, a Brother, a Husband, a Friend, and a Colleague in the truest sense of the word. He will be missed by so many, because above all, he was a truly nice person. We invite you to share your memories of our beloved J.D. We welcome, and value your contributions.
