In loving memory of

Jürgen Dumont

Founder and CEO of ITAF
(1973 - 2022)

With immense sadness, we need to inform you that in the early morning of Monday 18 July 2022, Jürgen Dumont, founder and longtime CEO of ITAF, passed away in his sleep after a lingering illness.

Jürgen has been a great source of inspiration and an example to us all, an ambitious entrepreneur who has always been full of creativity and energy.

Under Jürgen’s leadership, ITAF has grown to become an established ICT service provider for the Belgian SMB, a powerful organisation of more than 50 motivated and talented professionals who put the customer first with the aim of taking charge of the entire IT infrastructure of the customer and provide a worry-free experience.

For quite some time, Jürgen had not been operationally involved in the company anymore and the daily business leadership has been in the hands of Glenn Provoost and Katrien Boon as managing directors. Both have been active in the company since many years: Katrien is in charge of HR and administration and Glenn takes the lead in the IT services and commercial activities. They are supported by the Management Team consisting of 5 experienced managers.

Despite the organisation undeniably having taken a major setback with Jürgen’s loss, we’ve been preparing for this moment since a long time. Please be reassured that the continuity of our enterprise, in terms of strategic leadership, daily management, project deliveries and operational services as well as company ownership is assured.

Jürgen leaves behind his spouse Katrien and three daughters.

We would like to thank you in advance for your sympathy and your continued confidence in our company.

Katrien & Glenn

    Dear Katrien,

    My sincerest condolences for you at this time.
    You have my deepest sympathy and unwavering support.
    It is never easy to find the words to express our feelings when there are no words that can fully capture the depth of what we’re feeling..

    Jürgen has played a role in all of our lives and left a positive mark in one way or another – be that advice or just leading by example.
    He will be sorely missed by all of us.

    Wishing you and your daughters to find peace, comfort, courage, and lots of love at this time of sorrow.

    Although nothing can bring back the ones we loved, they live on in our memories and we carry their legacy in our hearts and minds.

    Feel free to reach our if we can help in any way.

    Liefste familie, Katrien,

    Jürgen was een echte vechter, dit heeft hij tot het laatste moment bewezen. Iemand om echt naar op te kijken! Ik heb geen woorden voor het verschrikkelijke verlies. Ik zou willen dat het anders was en wens jullie alle sterkte en kracht voor de komende periode. Als we iets voor jullie kunnen doen, zullen we klaar staan!

    Sterkte!

    JD was one of the toughest people I know.
    He was unique, inspired, and blessed with that special energy. He truly left his mark in the world and in all our lives.

    These years where I had the opportunity to work with him and learn from him were the highlight of my professional life. I admired him as a businessman and boss, but also as a great person.

    He will be missed ❤️

    My deepest condolences to K and their family.

    Lieve kids,

    Ik wens jullie veel sterkte toe in deze moeilijke tijd. Het is voor jullie de afgelopen jaren zeker niet makkelijk geweest.

    Wat gebleken is uit deze jaren is dat jullie papa een echte vechter is geweest waar jullie zeer trots op mogen zijn.

    Wees er voor elkaar in deze moeilijke tijd en geef mama extra veel aandacht en liefde (zij zal het ook zeker terugdoen).

    Lieve Katrien,

    Jou wens ik ook heel veel sterkte, neem zoveel mogelijk tijd voor jezelf en je prachtige kids. Zij (en jij) zullen dat zeker nodig hebben.

    Mocht je iets nodig hebben, of mocht je met iemand willen praten, weet je me altijd te vinden.

    Gecondoleerd met dit verlies en enorm veel kracht toegewenst aan alle nabestaanden.

    Lieve JD,
    Het bericht van Glenn kwam heel hard aan en het zal niet makkelijk zijn om dit enorme verlies te verwerken. Je zult voor altijd een plekje in mijn hart behouden. De herinneringen aan jou zullen nooit vergeten worden. Rust zacht lieve JD 😞

    Lieve Katrien,
    Je weet alles, ik kom woorden tekort op het moment maar je weet dat ik er altijd ben! Heel veel sterkte, liefde en kracht voor jou en de meiden! 💜

    Dear Katrien,

    Our hearts go out to you and his three strong and courageous daughters in this time of sorrow.

    Jürgen was a great person who showed us what means to have courage and keep fighting and at the same time give the most of you to others. He somehow always had so much energy to invest in people’s development and transfer his knowledge to them. He was a great mentor that influenced my core professional development. I will continue to have in mind his way of working and always ask questions like “What would Jürgen do in this situation?”. Jürgen will continue to be an inspiration to many of us.

    May he rest in peace, he will be forever missed, but his legacy will remain strong.

    Kindest regards,
    Ivana

    Dear Katrien,

    sincerest condolences to you and your family.

    I didn’t have a chance to work with Jurgen a lot. But what I’ve learned from time I worked with him, he was businessman,but first and foremost husband and father. Dedicated person to what he believed in, person with strong vision of what he wanted to achieve. In terms of his personality he was strict and thorough when it comes to work, with very good sense of humor. He will be deeply missed.

    I am so saddened because Jurgen is not among the living ones. He was a person with the greatest human qualities, and his positive influence on the people around him did not leave anyone indifferent. He was much more than a leader.

    I express my deepest condolences to Katrien and their family, and I wish them to have strength in these difficult times.
