    ways to improve it and enhance its reputation As a faculty member he was fully dedicated to his students yet very demanding and insisting on the highest level of performance He started many of the courses that are still taught today He was instrumental in establishing a modern Electric Power Engineering Laboratory at the University by raising external funds and soliciting equipment donations He played a pivotal role in establishing the Beth Pack Scholarship fund at the University Although Professor Marxheimer retired in the late 1980 s he maintained strong ties with the University through participation in the Alumni Chapter activities and other organizations within and outside the School of Engineering Many of his former students remember him with respect and appreciation for his influence on their careers He has touched many lives and will be missed Professor Marxheimer s friends and colleagues in the School of Engineering on the SFSU campus at large and in the Bay Area Chapter of IEEE where he was so active have gotten together to create an endowed scholarship in his name We know that Professor Marxheimer would be deeply gratified to see the response that this memorial scholarship has engendered and we welcome

    had indeed prepared him for such a challenge The native of Iran and recipient of three B S degrees computer science applied mathematics and astrophysics was working towards a Ph D in physics when he landed a coveted internship at Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory s LBL Advanced Light Source group and was asked to do some research on the Internet His next job left Saffarnia well suited for developing the software that would provide QSpace customers with a secure environment to conduct their transactions After leaving LBL Saffarnia became a software engineer at Hughes Itek Reconnaissance Systems where he developed custom applications for U S military communications satellites and for commercial clients worldwide Saffarnia also worked on custom software and hardware developed to transmit secure data across T1 and T2 high bandwidth telecommunication lines In addition he was responsible for porting large industrial grade applications from MS DOS to the UNIX Solaris environment and worked closely with Cisco Systems and Silicon Graphics to upgrade their communications backbones In the meantime Eze an Osberg Scholar had landed his first job as Special Project Engineer at Pacific Bell There he developed a novel procedure for predicting the risk of failure on operation critical switching and building systems which Pacific Bell still uses at its central offices throughout California The Nigerian born Eze received his introduction to the Internet on a special assignment for Bechtel Corp where he went to work as a Marketing and Business Specialist overseeing construction projects and developing strategies for demilitarization in Eastern Europe and China after leaving Pacific Bell His analysis showed the Internet could provide Bechtel National s Marketing and Business Development Group with a competitive advantage in contract management The two college chums stumbled onto the burgeoning world of e commerce almost by accident Intending to return to graduate school after their first professional exposure they were looking to start a portable business they could run on campus from a laptop computer One day a friend complained about the frustrations of paying for too many credit checks while looking for an apartment We thought wouldn t it be great if you could somehow go on line and get your credit report Eze recalls It just seemed like exactly the type of service the Internet was designed to provide They went to work within weeks putting together the blueprint for a secure document delivery system over the Internet The next step was to convince credit bureaus that the procedure would work flawlessly They successfully went live in July 1997 after raising 100 000 from a private investor 18 months of intensive lobbying and a few technical improvements The speed and ease of use of QSpace com captured the attention of the e commerce world like a storm Eze and Saffarnia immediately knew they had a successful service but no business They decided to build one Over a year of talks with the credit bureaus had convinced them that they should address the fundamentals of establishing a strong company
