In Loving Memory of Jerred Guillen

It really pains me to say this, but Jerred Guillen, or DetectiveArcher as some of you are more familiar with, passed away last night. Theresa said she couldn't handle telling everybody, so I'm going to give you the details as per her request. My sole plea is that nobody PMs her or IMs her asking for more information in light of the difficult time her and her family are going through. The least we can do for her right now is respect her privacy.

These details will be hard to read, but she requested that I share them for you all. Please brace yourselves.

Jerred hanged himself in the Guillen family's garage. Theresa walked in later that night and found him. They called 911, and the paramedics took him to the hospital where they pronounced him.

None of the Guillens saw this coming, and neither could any of us. As I say that, I have to re-assure you all. Please do not feel guilty or responsible for Jerred's passing. There is nothing that any of us could have done; and Theresa, if you read this, I'm including you here as well. You were and still are a loving, thoughtful, and supportive sister. You haven't failed in any way. Your brother loved you, and continues to love you.

If anyone wants to leave a thoughtful message, a memory of Jerred, or support for the Guillen family in this trying time, they are more than welcome to. I once again ask that these messages stay in this thread. Theresa needs our support, but she also needs to grieve, and I ask that everybody respects that.

For now, I'm also going to ask that everyone puts their petty and inconsequential grievances with each other aside. Please be there for each other. In life, Jerred stepped in to mediate so many of our squabbles and differences, and in comparison, they all seem so futile now. We need to be there for each other instead of separating ourselves for tiny, insignificant reasons. His kindness, neutrality, and infinite pearls of wisdom reminded us of that in life, and the least we can do for him is carry on his talent and his care into our lives. That will be our best way to remember him.

I'm going to conclude with a quote Theresa told me just hours ago.
wrote:I know my brother considered you guys his friends, and he spoke of you fondly and often. Thank you for being there for him. He really enjoyed getting to know you, and spending time with you in chat and working on SoTF.
Talk to each other. Cry, laugh, and be there. Life is fragile, and we all need to get through it together, especially in times like this.

Sincerely,

Aaron

My full condolences to his family and I hope they recover. I can't say I knew him well or anything but still, this is awful news. I cannot really say much beyond that.

I can't really express exactly how this news has made me feel, and I have the most heartfelt sympathy for Theresa and the rest of Jer's family right now, because I'm sure anything I'm feeling right now must be insignificant compared to them.

Jer was such a great guy, nice to be around, nice to talk with, fantastic from a writing standpoint... just all around one of the nicest, friendliest people on the site, beyond a shadow of a doubt. I feel... bad for not having spoken to him more about whatever.

We've not only lost a great staff member and writer, but a friend too.

I love you man.

Although I didn't know him very well, I know what an effect he had on the members here, and I know how much he meant to everyone who knew him.

Sufficed to say, we've lost a truly magnificent guy, and the site will be a whole lot emptier without him.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Theresa. We'll never forget him.
Hello again.

I'm still relatively new here so I can't say that I knew him very well - but still, this is horrible news. From what I saw, he really seemed like a nice guy. My heart goes out to all of his close friends and family members affected by this tragedy.

Whoa...I can't really express my shock in words. He really was an awesome guy and I always enjoyed talking to him as well as reading the posts he made on this forum. I really, really wish from the bottom of my heart that this hadn't happened and I hope for the best for Theresa and the rest of the Guillen family.

He definitely will be missed.

I really don't know what to say or write here. It all seems so insignificant. I didn't know Jerred nearly as well as I would have liked to, but he was one of the kindest, friendliest, most caring people on the board. He was a wonderful guy all around, and I'll miss him a ton.

I'm sort of in shock right now.

I don't really know what to say about all this except that I'm so, so sorry that it happened. Theresa, I'm so sorry about all this.

Wow, this post really took me by surprise today, just like everyone else. I can't really say as much as I would like, as I never really knew him very well, especially in comparison to the mod team and any of the older members of the forums. The times I did spend though talking with him were telling fond and friendly stories and just having an overall good time together. My condolences to Theresa, their family and all of the close friends. I wish all of you the best during your time of grief.

You will be missed Jarred.

Jerred, I truly hope that you rest in peace. It's always such a tragedy when something like this happens... so much more-so since we were all so close to him. I send my best wishes to his family, and to Theresa. He'll be incredibly missed.
