Jason Montes, 33, was found dead by police at the home of his estranged wife. His wife was fatally wounded at the location. Montes had called a friend to say he had shot his wife and planned to kill himself. [source]
Jason was my supervisor at Hüdson. I sat across from him. His then-girlfriend joined us one time for lunch.
Lunch for him was always meat-topped pizza or a plain cheeseburger. He didn't eat vegetables.
A few days before I walked out, Jason learned that our boss John was terminating him at the end of the month.
I lunched with him a week later.
"John asked me if he needed to change the locks on the doors."
"He thinks you're doomed to fail in a structured work environment."
That was the last time I saw Jason. I kept his screenname on my buddy list, but we only chatted once afterward (I don't keep in touch with people).
He invited me to lunch. I couldn't go.
27 Oct 06: "Jason, evidently, helped found IGN. So says his résumé."
Montes had recently filed for bankruptcy protection.
