Rest In Peace to @TheMMAPodcast aka Jake Walters. 30 years old. He had just graduated from Florida State University College of Law. Had a bright future ahead of him. Such a selfless and helpful person. Incredibly knowledgeable about MMA.

Message:
I heard the bad news of your passing and while I know this message forever will be sent to the void of the internet I just wanted to say thank you for making my life better. You were simply a cool guy on a fun website in a world of internet trolls. I wish that your family finds some relative of peace after your passing as I am sure you were profoundly impactful and important to them. R.I.P. brother, and thank you for being a friend.

I guess it's quite a few years ago at this point, but we played some games on Xbox together and Jake was just a really nice, funny guy. Jesus, 30 is way too young. RIP buddy...
