RIP, Jeff

I have too much going on in my mind regarding Jeff and his suicide to write about it with any measure of eloquence right now. Perhaps another time. But I needed to acknowledge his passing today.

My relationship with Jeff — the friendship, the 21CP podcast — was complicated, to say the least. My heart hurts. Sometimes his intensity, his raw desolation, was too much for me to carry and I had to withdraw and recover. Such a smart, analytic man. Such a deep feeler. Perhaps these things were his undoing. 

I sincerely thank the people who’ve been looking out for Jeff. Since his father died in 2009, he’s been on a slow decline. I never thought it’d end this way. I also want to give special thanks to those who sprung into action today in hopes of saving him.
