With heavy hearts we have some news to share with you all. Our dear friend @Jestex has passed away. At the young age of 19, Jestex took his own life.
Jestex worked on Super Terraria World (STW) with Flippi and CursedMoose from near the beginning of its conception. What started out as a work relationship on creating a mod for Terraria, quickly grew into a great friendship. Jestex recommended Khaios for the mod and that’s how our team began.
The team has spent countless hours and long nights working on STW together over the years and this could not have been possible without the talent and camaraderie of Jestex, something that will surely be missed.
Not only is Jestex known for his work on the STW mod, but also for his significant contribution to TCF. His astounding work includes making emoticons for the forums, many of which were officially added to the forum or were personalised for users absolutely free of charge, later on going to help develop a piece of software allowing users to make their own emoticons. He also created many pieces of stunning pixel art, once again for no personal gain at the request of fellow users of TCF.
We’ve shed tears when we found out about his passing, but are extremely happy to have known him. We are honored to have spent these past few years together, very closely. It brings us joy that we were able to come together as fans of a video game to create something wonderful. We are happy to have been able to see his artwork and watch him grow his talent. We are proud that Jestex was able to be such a big impact on these forums and the Terraria community. He will be missed greatly by us, and he will forever be in our thoughts and hearts.
It’s important to remember that people all around you struggle internally, and while you may not have the power to solve all of their issues, you might be able to help them or even yourself just by talking. Please take this moment to reflect on if you can help anyone by talking to them, or if you can reach out for help by talking to those around you. A life could be saved by taking a few moments to talk, and that life saved is worth every moment.
