RIP Srecko Jamnisek 1931-2010
Srećko Jamnišek 1931-2010

A sad day.

Mr. Srecko Jamnisek, a great guy that, among other great things, started AIESEC in Belgrade and Yugoslavia back in 1953, passed away.

Starting AIESEC in Yugoslavia 57 years ago was a huge thing – that was the first time that such innovative and self-governing movement was allowed in one communist country. I suppose I can even go a bit further and say that it sparkled AIESEC offices and youth networking and leadership development in many other communist countries.

Mr. Jamnišek was inducted to AIESEC Alumni Hall of Fame in 2003. at 50th birthday of AIESEC in Yugoslavia.

Profile of the inductee below copied from aiesec.org:

Mr. Jamnišek, thank you for starting something that eventually changed mine and lives of thousands of people in ex-Yugoslavia.

    Hvala svim AIESEC-ovcima koji ste ga poznavali i cijenili, to mu je vrlo mnogo značilo. Želio je dobro svim narodima, naročito omladini, studentima… već davno bio je uvjeren, da jedino otvoreno društvo, koje omogućava mladima razmjenu znanja i iskustava sa drugima, može omogućiti razvoj… zato se toliko i trudio davne 1952. godine… rezultat je evidentan, na desetine hiljada mladih i dandanas koristi program razmjene i to je za svakog pojedinca dobro. Još jednom, puno vam hvala za pažnju i prisustvo AIESEC-ovca na sahrani 26.2.2010 . Sve dobro vam želim. Blanka Jamnišek ( kčer)

      U Politici smo videli citulju i puno smo se iznenadili. Ovom prilikom izrazavamo iskreno saucesce. U secanju nam ostaju zajednicki lepi trenuci u Kuparima i Trebinju.
      Saucestvujemo u bolu.

    Draga Blanka,

    hvala puno sto si se javila.
    Gospodin Srecko verovatno nikada nije ni mogao da shvati koliko mnogo postujemo i njega i sve sto je uradio, niti je verovatno bio svestan koliko je zivota sustinski promenila ta njegova inicijativa.
    Secam se njegovog zahvaljivanja "sto smo ga se setili" i secam se da ni tada nisam mogao da verujem da upoznajem coveka koji je sve ovo zapoceo i da je toliko skroman… Neverovatno…

    Zbog svega toga, jos jednom, hvala mu!

    Srecko Jamnisek was a man who loved his family deeply, was always smiling, and encouraging to those around him. He welcomed me to Prague when I came to the International School to teach his daughter, Blanka, in the third grade. He invited me (and my fellow teacher, Vicky) to his home for dinner and took us with his family on a skiing weekend back in 1970. He welcomed me and my husband in Frankfort when we returned to Europe for a visit. He was a thoughtful and generous man. I will remember him always.

    Slučajno sam večeras pročitao ovaj prilog i ražalostio jer sam imao čast i zadovoljstvo da budem saradnik pravog gospodina Srećka Jamnišeka u Frankfurtu tokom pet godina rada u Ljubljanskoj banci. Neverovatan čovek, pun znanja, energije i optimizma. Rastali smo se 91/92 godine kao veliki prijatelji ali se na žalost od tada nismo više čuli. Imao sam čast da upoznam i njegovu divnu suprugu i ako kojim slučajem neko ima kontakt sa porodicom Jamnišek želim da zamolim da prenesete moje iskrene pozdrave i moje divno sećanje na Srećka Jamnišeka. Slobodan Maričić, nekadašnji šef predstavništva u Frankfurtu sa suprugom Nadom inače detaširani predstavnik nekadašnje Ljubljanske banke u Beogradu.
