Obituary for David Kennedy


We are very sad to inform all the colleagues related to the water jetting industry about the passing of David Kennedy, Director of the Water Jetting Association.

David died on October 1st, in the hospital, with his family by his side.

He was involved, in various roles and activities, with the water jetting industry, throughout his career.

In his country, he was engaged in the foundation of the UK Water Jetting Association, WJA, back in 1980, becoming later its President.

Since 2009, he was the Director of the association, and he was planning to retire from his responsibilities at the end of 2022.

He was a very well known and respected person in the industry, for his knowledge and his willingness to share it.

David participated several times in the EWJI activities, from the very first steps of the organization, including the foundational event held in October 2015.

On behalf of the European Water Jetting community, we would like to express our deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.
