I saw your Facebook status and thought about wishing you luck at Mania but I know even after I deleted all the effing spam, you wouldn't see my thoughts...

So I'm saying it here... Get better. Wish you the best of luck...And godspeed. I'm pretty sure you all know but his latest Facebook message was:

"Am in frederick hospital with a leak in my aorta and a partially dead left kidney. Going to be transferred to probably Washington university hospital."

Love ya, bro. J.

 Hey everyone. I don't know how many of you are friends with my brother on Facebook so I don't know if you've seen my update on his page.

He's been in surgery since about 4:30 this morning. The doctors have fixed his aorta but there were complications. Currently, they are unable to stop the bleeding and they expect many more hours of surgery.

The doctors also stopped his circulation for an hour during surgery. We've been told he will have brain damage from this but we don't know the extent.

That being said, Jake has been told that before when he was a teenager. Jake doesn't talk about it at all but we have a serious medical condition and that's likely the cause of this, so being told we're going to die/be damaged somehow is something we've heard before. And every single time, we've all been okay.

That gives me hope that Jake will return to his snarky self asap. 

I'll be posting updates to his FB page and probably on my twitter as well. So you guys can stay informed that way. 

I also want to say that this community means a lot to Jake. I know everyone here is full of snark and dirty jokes, but you guys all mean so much to him. 

If you could say a prayer for him, I'd appreciate it.... even if it's just a prayer to the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Hang on in there big guy.  Hang on in there.

 All the best, Jake. Seriously. Be as stubborn and ornery with fighting through this as you are with everything else. You'll be in my thoughts.

Jakester was probably one of the first people I conversed with on Cinescape back in the day.  We've never had words, and he has always come off as a genuine stand-up guy.

My Dad was hospitalized with COPD last year, and for awhile things got pretty worrisome.  He's managed to come through that rather well, as do many.  You may take comfort in that, Jake, even though your ailment is rather different. 

Fight hard.  Stay hard.

 Thanks for the update Scarlet, here and on FB.  It's nice to hear how much this place means to Jakester.  I have never met anyone on these boards (even though I only live about an hour's drive from Jakester), but it is like a twisted family.

I know he'll pull out of this...probably with an inappropriate comment when he wakes up from the anesthesia.

Turn your head and cough!

I've known some of you guys since 2001. In many ways, I feel closer to my on-line family than I feel to my blood relations.

Please continue to update here, since I am not FB friends with anyone here. Good luck Jake, and here's hoping you're up and sexually harrassing the nurses toot sweet.

Jakester's brother posted on Jakester's Facebook page to let us all know Jakester didn't make it.

I've been sitting here trying to think of a way to post the news in an appropriate way, but I don't think there is one. I don't feel like it's my news to tell, but I hate the idea of keeping Jake's Corona family in the dark.

I don't know whether or not Scarlet will come back with more details, but I imagine she has her hands full at the moment.

If you're Facebook friends with Jakester, maybe you could drop in and leave condolences for his family to see. If you're not, maybe you can write something here. I'm sure it'll get back to his family somehow.

Jakester was a good man. There were several times when I thought of him as the only friend I had on Cinescape or its successor Mania. Or here, for that matter.

We live in strange times, when the passing of someone we have never met evokes feelings we might never have had for people we have known personally.  But that is how I feel. 

I don't quite know how to process this all now, so I will simply say; Jakester--or should I say, Jason-- you may not have had any reason to know this, but... you were my friend.  I hope you thought of me as one of yours.  I have a feeling you did.  

Many of your posts remain in my memory, even though they may have been written almost a decade ago, and no longer exist in any physical form, having been erased.

I used to consider scenarios in which you and I would get together and have a beer, or a Guinness stout.  Talk about politics, women, science fiction, space, and everything in between. 

But that won't happen now.  And I have to accept that. 

As we all do.

Very well put, Spacey and Goiter.  I have been struggling all night with why I feel this great sense of loss for someone I had never met.  The thing is that we are all part of each others lives, whether we've met or not.  Since I live so close to Jakester (it always seemed weird to call him Jason), I feel guilty that we never got together.  Like you, Spacey, I imagined downing a few beverages, having a good talk, joking about all of you...but, we both had lives outside of Corona and it never seemed to be a priority.  I am at a loss on how to process all of this.

God damn. Fuck.

You know, it's so hard to imagine someone on the board just gone like that. It's something I just couldn't imagine happening to Jake. But, to be totally honest, just hearing what was going on with him, it sounded really grim.

God fucking damn it.

I've come to accept that I will never meet most of you guys. An on-line friendship is nothing to sniff at. It's sort of neat knowing there's a group of people I've come to know and like based on the strength and content of their words alone. I didn't know what half you people looked like until sites like MySpace and Facebook came on the scene. I still don't know what some of you look like, and I know what even fewer of you sound like. That doesn't matter to me. I still feel, as I said above, like I'm closer to some of you than I am to many of my blood relations.

It would be cool to meet up with any and every one of you, but I won't feel bad about it if it never happens. The Internet's a huge part of my life. Knowing you all electronically is about as big a deal as knowing you in the flesh. (That sounds kinda gross, but I'll leave it.)

I just feel lost and terribly, painfully sad.  I adored Jake and I truly miss him deeply already.  I can't believe he just isn't.

Nonononononononono.

NO.

Godammit, Jakester, I wanted you to be making inappropriate comments to me when I was having hot flashes and my hair was turning silver all over and my tits were sagging.

Maybe other people might not understand how we can feel this way about someone we only know "on the internetz," but this is someone we talked to almost every day for the past ten years. Someone who understood and shared our enthusiasm for cool nerd stuff. And someone, as I got to know him "in real life" on FB, who was a standup guy and a great dad. So I repeat. No.

Shitpissdamnfuckcunt.

 Btw, this was the last thing he posted on Facebook after letting us know he had been hospitalized:

"Just in case, thanks for caring about me, each and every one if you."

I know he meant everyone on here, as well.

I just found out. Through my admin access to the site I can see the topics from the last 10 postings. I ran to Facebook and saw the news at the top of my feed.

Scarlet, when you read this, I am so so sorry for you and your family. When the time is right please let the rest of your family and Jake's circle of real-life friends know how much we love him. You and Jakester's family are in my thoughts.

Sitting here crying about this, knowing it's not even a fraction of how awful you must be feeling. Jakester was more than a terrific guy. He was a big reason for these forums being a special kind of place.

Please let me know if the site or myself can help you in any way. I am so sorry.

No matter where you go, there you are.
