With deepest regret, we inform you that Jonathan P. Tennant (Jon) tragically died on 9 April 2020 on Bali at the age of 32. Jon was an ardent advocate for open access to science, a true scientist, critical, but also self-critical, of curious mind, always cheerful, smiling and ready to help. To best describe what Jon was like as a scientist but also as a friend, here is a warm text by Jadranka Stojanovski.

We will miss you immensely dear Jon. Rest in peace.
