In another post it was mentioned that one of the maintainers for Jekyll passed away, here is a link to a nice article about him:

I didn’t know him but frequently saw him helping people here, sorry to see he has passed away. In hindsight I wish I had said thanks to him for helping create and maintain Jekyll, I appreciate it.

So to anyone else who has helped maintain Jekyll in the past or present - Thanks! your work is appreciated though you may not hear that as often as you should!!


I had seen his name but never really looked at the history of the product. Unfortunately it is not until now I learned his importance. Very sad to hear and I will second your sentiment @rdyar!


Wait, a young (or maybe middle aged) healthy (presumably) person passed away in his sleep just like that, out of the blue, for no reason?! How can that be?!

Thank you for the kind words. They mean a lot. In a world where open source maintainers often only see/hear complaints about their projects, the kind words mean so much more when we do see/hear them. <3


I’d like to chime in: THANK YOU!
