Everyone,

I have just been informed that Jack Frost IV, aka LoCash, has passed away. His mentor, Ted, got the phone call today and informed some of us. I don't have any details right now but if I hear anything I will post here. Jack was an amazingly kind and creative person, and I'm going to miss him. I have known him for ten years and I can't believe this. I just thought you all should know.

This is a prank, right?


No, really, say it's a prank.

I fucking wish it were. If this is a prank I'm being pranked, too.

His cell phone just goes through to an automated message, and he hasn't answered my emails for days. We were worried about him, and now this.

Jesus. I've been wondering where the hell he's been too, and trying not to worry, but... christ.

Yes, please keep us informed.

Whoa. I just did work for one of his old clients. Well...guess that explains the lack of reply on the CC's. Gulp... Say it ain't so.

I hope it wasn't stress related. He seemed to really overreact a week ago over a simple bit of miscommunication. Like, huge emails where a few sentences might have sufficed. The client has happy, all was well.

ever since jack made me sign up for a account on this forum, i don't think i've posted but a couple of times. i really can't believe this has happened. it really hurts my heart as i've known him since i was 13 or 14. i've turned to him for a lot of personal advice over the years, and he's gave me a lot of insight about a lot of things. i know secretly i'm hoping this is a prank, but the way things have been lately i don't think there is much room for that. please keep him in your thoughts.

Can't believe it.
Really need confirmation on this.
Knew him more as cornerj4 the few times I saw him on iChat.

I never knew LoCash personally, but he was one of the guys who really made me feel welcome here... This is just terrible. My heart goes out to his family and friends...

This is really bad news. I can't believe he is dead.
My condoleances, to all his family and friends.

We missed Belle, and now it's the turn of LoCash : what's wrong with life ?

Wow. Never had much communication with LoCash directly, but we were certainly aware of each other, and I consider him a friend from this forum... My condolances to his friends and family and I hope he has the bitchinest Mac setup wherever he is now...

I don't know what to say, this can't be true. I have never known anyone even semi-well that has died. I have to say after reading this my body just felt completely different. I will share more later..., until then, I'll be sitting here with a sick feeling in my stomach.

This is terrible news - my deepest sympathies go out to Jack's family and friends.

I've had a few PMs with Jack and he was always straight up with me. I'm really shocked, saddened and ... I just can't believe it.

What can we as a community do? If somebody is organising something or knows his family, please PM me as I would like to extend my sympathies to them also.

All I want is a simple life

i am stunned too...and very saddened...much too young

i will always remember him for his shaven legs and disco squirrel dancing

and for his joyful spirit and beautifully demented mind

love to his family

g


when i saw this thread i instantly thought, "hmmm, haven't seen a lowcash post in a while, wonder what's up"...never thought this though...

god i really wish it is a prank. doubt that it is, and if it is, it is a damn awful one...

bike accident? car accident? other??

damn this is a shitty morning

Looking back, I talked to him the last time ever on the 19.

I just got more of a sick feeling looking at a log with him and seeing the last thing I said to him...

From the May 19th...

I've just thought yesterday that he hadn't been posting in a while. I was hoping he'd be back around these parts to give us another WWDC Keynote text feed. This is just fucking shitty.
