Corelation, Inc. Chief Technology Officer Dwayne Jacobs passed away suddenly this week. Details of his passing will not be disclosed at this time, respecting his family’s privacy.
Stepping into the CTO role for the interim will be Corelation President Rob Landis with support from Corelation CIO Jeff Dent.
Jacobs was recently named Corelation’s Chief Technology Officer in February 2022, a promotion from his previous position at the company as Director of Software Development.
Jacob’s financial technology career spanned more than 30 years, holding leadership positions in product development, professional services, and information technology areas. Prior to joining Corelation, Jacobs held CIO, CTO, SVP, and VP roles at DirecTV, Computer Associates, Deloitte and Touche, Fiserv, Experian, and several fintechs.
“We are all in shock at Dwayne’s sudden passing this week,” said Rob Landis. “He was a rare talent in our industry, a person with vast experience in so many fintech and development arenas. We were honored to work with him, and we have benefited greatly from his passion for innovative development. We would not be where we are today without Dwayne’s significant contributions. He will be missed tremendously.”
Jacobs is survived by his loving wife, four children, and one grandchild.
