LDraw.org is pleased to announce that Don and Robyn Jessiman, the parents of the late LDraw creator James Jessiman, will be attending Brickfest 2001. Tim Courtney, Erik Olson, and Bram Lambrecht are planning a talk on LDraw programs, current development, and a question and answer session to follow. The Jessimans will also be involved in the LDraw talks.
James Jessiman passed away in July of 1997 in Wagga Wagga, Australia. Since then the community of users have maintained the distribution of LDraw and have made significant improvements to the community. James' parents have been incredibly supportive of the community since their son's death. Learn more about James Jessiman on the LDraw.org Memorial Pages.
