Additional Information

Dear ASHRAE Colleagues and Friends,

We lost our friend and longtime TC5.3 member, Dr. Jerry Sipes, to cancer on May 31, 2016.  He was 51 years old.  Sadly, Jerry’s son, Glenn Sipes, only 24 years old, passed away Feb. 27, 2016 due to cancer as well.

Jerry was an active member of TC5.3, made many contributions to  ASHRAE through Technical Committees, standards committee, Guidebook, and Distinguished Lecturer Program.  He was a past Chair of TC 2.1, a 2001 recipient of the Ralph G. Nevins Physiology and Human Environment Award, which is awarded to a researcher for “Significant Accomplishment in the Study of Physiology and Human Response to the Environment.”  He was active in many other aspects of ASHRAE service including serving on AHRI and USGBC.  

He received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Kansas State University.  Jerry worked at the Institute for Environmental Research at Kansas State University while pursuing his degrees.  He was amazingly talented and hardworking and was able to work on an ASHRAE funded research project for his Ph.D. while working full time.  Jerry had immense technical abilities, who shared his knowledge and expertise willingly and served our technical community.  He will be greatly missed.

Memorials may be sent to “The Sipes Memorial Scholarship” at Kansas State University, KSU Foundation, 1800 Kimball Ave., Suite 200, Manhattan, KS, 66502 or online at .  Search for Sipes Memorial Scholarship or Sipes. The fund number is N87624.
