Professor Clausen was my professor in 2013, and again in 2016. I was a student in his very last class at UCF. I have very fond memories of his vast scientific knowledge, as well as being a very caring professor. RIP professor Clausen, you are sorely missed.

My favorite college professor. I still can not wrap my head around the fact that you are gone, but I know I will see you again in heaven someday.

I haven't seen you since I graduated in 1971. You were my favorite professor due to the fact that you actually cared about each of your students. I was a student in your inorganic Chemistry class in the spring of 1970. You were an exemplary professor as well as a family man with good example to all.

I remember the day I picked up my cap and gown for commencement. You saw me and went out of your way to congratulate me. I only wish I had taken the time to let you know that my career as a
Science Teacher was a wonderful journey. You really inspired me. Jacqueline Day...class of 1971.

Dear Dr. Clausen,
I will miss you and you were two of the best graduate professors I have met in my career. Although earth has lost a true gem of a person, Heaven has gained an angel...I bet there is a Cajun party going on up there with Cajun fried turkey, jambalaya, shrimps, corn on the cob and what not...i bet if folks are even late for a few minutes up there, they will be missing out on the grand feast....Dr. C you were one of the few humble, smart and a kind hearted person that I have ever met. You never made anyone feel incapable of being successful. When I took your graduate classes you took the time to explain and had the patience to explain till I understood the concept. As huge as you were stature wise, there was a gentle side of you that everyone who met you met experienced. Your parties whether it be in the department or at your outpost were things I wouldn't want to miss...I would make sure I wouldn't be late...cos I knew if I were late by even a few minutes I wouldn't have anyone to blame but myself...I think you character and nature influenced a lot of the other chemistry department some ways we subconsciously tried to mimic that...I hope we all succeeded and you give us a thumbs up ;---))
I will most certainly miss you and hope we and the department are able to live up to your standards of humility and strive for success.
In closing, I would like to offer Mrs. Clausen, Dr. Clausen's family & the UCF Chemistry department my heartfelt condolences.

God Bless,

Dr. C.. May you rest in peace. You to me were a mentor, a father, a role model. I was trained by the greatest professor on earth, you. Since 1995, i remembered you every single day of my life, your fingerprints are well molded on my spirit and soul. I learned everything from you, i copy your personality on a daily basis. During my resesrch assistantships under your supervision, you believed in me, my abilities, my intellects etc. Even when i proposed wrong ideas, your smile and answers made me correct the ideas for the better. You have made me who i am today. All my staff my friends my family my friends etc know you by name and by character. Since 95. Never did i forget you and never will. You live and reside inside me. My dad passed away when i was 15, and in ucf, you treated me like a son. I honestly love you. You are a great loss to humanity and i lost a father myself. Dr. C all my current successes carry your name directly. I love you and i really miss you. Today i am a successful scientist and a managing partnet because of you. You gave me confidence to take calculated risks and i did...may you rest in peace and one day we will meet in the heavens of the Lord where i will testify to Him how a great man you are and a great father. As i am typing this natural mesaage, my eyes are filled with tears... i never and shall never forget you. You live inside me forever....A zillion words can not substitute all the worldy adjectives of how great a man you are to your team... i miss you..i love you Dr. C

Julia and Family,

Dr. C. was such a huge part of Bell Performance and I will truly miss him, his contagious smile and those great big bear hugs. He welcomed me with open arms when I started working at Bell in 2005 and treated me like family. He was such a brilliant and humble man and I always appreciated him "dumbing down" information so I could understand the chemistry he was explaining for our fuel additives. I will miss his deep fried turkeys but most of all I will miss him!!! Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. I pray that God comforts you and give you peace in the days, weeks, months and years to come. Sending lots of love, prayers and big Dr. C. hugs your way.

The first time I met Chris was several decades ago when I was fishing the Econ River and drifted down to a volleyball net across the middle of the river with male and female students and professors from the chemistry department loudly playing volleyball knee to waist deep. I watched for several minutes and then called a timeout to allow my boat to drift under the net. Chris welcomed me with a beverage and an offer of food. He wished me good luck with my fishing and wanted to know how many ducks I saw on the river. This was long before the Clausen home was constructed on Bobwhite Trail. Over the years, I witnessed the volleyball games several times and would always be welcomed by Chris to enjoy a beverage and snack on some food. Whenever LSU was successful against Florida in football, Chris would greet me at the mailbox with a smile and a wish for better luck next year. Good memories of a good friend.

Dr. C was such a jolly man. When he came to our Christmas parties, or even just walked into our office, it was like an extra portion of joy had walked into the room. I looked forward to his deep fried turkeys every year, although I am surprised it wasn't deep fried fish instead. I am so grateful for all he did for us personally as well as here at our company. May God surround all of his loved ones with His love, peace and everlasting arms.
