I am too stunned to find the right words. Wilke was a life force, a true professional, a friend, a joyful presence. I was honored to be part of the Jake Wirth’s beer group, the Boston business journalists whom Wilke recruited and welcomed. We competed covering the tech scene around here for several years—Digital in particular-- but my memories are of sharing a beer, laughing, telling stories, finding common ground. I was distraught when he up and left Boston and now I am deeply saddened by his loss. He was one of the really good people and he will be missed by those lucky enough to have entered into his orbit.
