from David Soto

I have always been a fan of Jon Driver's work. Ten years back in Spain when I was doing my PhD some of the first influential papers I read were his contribution to an special issue in Cognition on 'Objects and Attention' and his fantastic single author paper in Nature back in 1996. It was then my pleasure to meet him in a couple of occasions, the later when he invited me to give  a talk at the ICN a couple of years ago; Jon was really kind and nice to me on that day; I felt really honoured to have him as a host!  I will always remain a fan of his work. I have not had the opportunity to know him better as a person but this week I felt a great loss. My deepest sympathies go for his family, colleagues and friends.
