Chuck the Champion
Dr. Charles Jenkins overcomes obstacles and gives back to Ole Miss Engineering. See the great article about Chuck on the University of Mississippi News at http://news.olemiss.edu/chuck-champion/.
Chuck has served the Computer and Information Science Department and its students in many ways. He taught the Programming for Engineering and Science course part-time in the latter 1990s. And then the taught full-time from 2003 until 2008, with his courses ranging from introductory programming to our upper-division software engineering course. His teaching is always grounded in his practical experience as an engineer and software consultant.
Chuck earned a computer science MS degree in 2007 and a PhD in 2010. He has since served ably on the Engineering Advisory Board computer science committee. He is a great friend of Ole Miss Computer Science.
In Memoriam Chuck Jenkins (7/10/2015). We are very saddened to learn that Chuck Jenkins passed away last night. Although Chuck lost the battle with the cancer that ravaged his body, he is still very much a champion. He is remembered as a man of great integrity and faith, a consummate professional, a loving husband and father, a friend to many. He will be sorely missed! And he will be long remembered. Our thoughts and prayers go to Sherry, C.J., Luke, and other family members and friends.
