Carl Jung also.

Carl Jung?  :o

What the blue blazes has Carl Jung got to do with electronics engineering?

You don't mean Walter Jung, do you?

Thank you. I had to go look on my bookshelf. Walter it is. (Try pulling obscure names out of the air when you've been crimping pins for D-sub connectors all day and you'll make mistakes too... ;)

Invention, my dear friends, is 93% perspiration, 6% electricity, 4% evaporation, and 2% butterscotch ripple.

That's 105%!

Well in that case, perhaps it's not butterscotch that he has.

Hi, though I'm strictly not electronics, but more electrical, my list is:

Charles Steinmetz - contributions in ac power theory
Nikola Tesla - ac power, 3-phase ac motors, transformers.
James Maxwell Michael Faraday - physicists in electromagnetic theory
AC transformer development -  Károly Zipernowsky, Ottó Bláthy, Miksa Déri,  Mikhail Dolivo-Dobrovolsky, William Stanley - there's probably more.
Transistor development - too many to list.

I owe a great debt to W.S Ibbetson B.Sc. A.M.I.E.E it was reading his book motor and dynamo control theory and practice 1921, that first got me interested in electricity and electronics and as he was writing for people who had not come across electrical equipment before he explained the theory in a way that a 9 year old in the early 1960's could very easily understand.
My next favorite is F.J.Camm whose 1934 book Television and short-wave radio got me into radio.
I still have both those books which I picked up at Heffers second hand book shop.
