Chris was employed at UCF as an Assistant Web Strategist for Course Development and Web Services from June ’06 and recently, worked for the Institute for Simulation & Training (IST) and Florida Online Reading Professional Development (FOR-PD).

From his UCF family: Chris Banach may be best remembered by being known to do and love so many things (e.g., fitness, nature, technology, video, coffee, culture, smoothies, etc.). The first time we met him, he made an immediate impression. Chris was very bright, articulate and possessed a keen sense of awareness and humor. His personality, willingness to take on challenging work, zest for life, and wonderful sense of humor ensured he will be remembered forever by those who loved him. Chris’s contributions to Web Services from Jan. ’06 – Jun.’08 and Sept.’09 to the present included, but were not limited to, assisting with various projects, AskUCF, and usability studies along with several other Web sites and projects. More importantly, Chris’ excitement for life was contagious as all those who knew him know very well. Chris will be dearly missed by his colleagues and UCF Family.
