I feel I'm coming in a bit late and coming over from H!O and all...hum.

I was one of the girls sitting to the left of Jab during the concert. There was the short girl who had to stand up in her chair to see (Holly), Leah in the middle, and me at the end of us.  When I came in Holly and Leah were talking to him and I sat down and we just started having a conversation about MM.  He asked us which was our favorite member and we went down the line and he told us his was JunJun. Leah was surprised that JunJun was a big favorite in America. He offered us some stickers and glowsticks and I think Holly helped him hand out a few to the people in front of us.

Anyway, Holly turned to me and asked me what color went with Takahashi and I told her yellow. I turned away for a moment hearing Leah and Holly telling him that I had magically memorized the colors for each girl and when I turned around he asked me to tell him all the colors and I went through the list and then we stopped when I got to LinLin and wondered why there were so many different variations on blue and why LinLin had to be the odd blue color that you could never find....

I remember looking over once because Holly kept running down the line of seats she was standing on to talk to some AX staffer to explain that she was short and he was desperately looking for his ticket and was led out and then some of the guys further down found it...

He looked like he was having a great time and from the chat we had before the concert he seemed like a real sweetheart. And I was certainly shocked when I found out it was him that had passed.

So, I just wanted to jump over here real quick and say a little something. I never got to thank him for giving me a glowstick after my orange one wouldn't work and I was freaking-out.

Rest in Peace.

My heart still hurts when I think of Jab :cry: :cry: , such an awesomely nice guy he was...

But I'd also like to say THANK YOU to everyone here at JPH!P, I don't have anyone here to talk to about losing someone from this forum. So no one in town knows of this place or anything and I don't feel like crying to them about something they don't know about.

But you guys here all helped me get through it, I've stopped crying about it now for awhile. The pain in my heart is still there, but i'm able to manage it now. So thanks guys, being in the IRC chatting with you all is awesome. Thanks for comforting and helping this lonely soul get through such a tragic event.

R.I.P Jab, you were one of a kind :heart:

I got the news a little late.

Jabronisaur was a great guy, and we used to have great fun discussing our various nerd habits. He's rolling D20s in Valhalla now.

I'll think of you every time we watch Mazes & Monsters.

well, I finally got the chance to say something. I've stayed away from it far too long.

I only got to see him for the few minutes in LA. I have to be honest, I sometimes blame myself for not seeing him more. I was so angry about AX that I never got to enjoy my trip like I wanted to. I got to see him in the IRC a lot and sometimes, I may have ticked him off a time or two.

The thing is, the last night I was in dai's room and saw him in bed, at first thought, I thought he had drank too much or he was freezing from the AC.  Never did I think it would come down to this :(

When I heard the news of him passing away, I have to admit it that it never truly hit me until a day or so later. I realized that I blamed myself for everything, mainly because my pride had got the best of me again. Honestly, I'm not really good at saying how I really feel.

First of all Jab, if you are listening out there..I'm sorry. :cry:

I'm sorry I never got to spend enough time with you in LA. I've been eating myself up with it ever since you left and it'll stay with me for the rest of my life. Hopefully, you can forgive me if I see you again. :cry:

I just hope that I can live through your legacy as you had.

Rest in Peace Jab. Hope you're having fun on Junjun land(on the corner of Risaland with marimari)..tell him hi for me.

That's nice CKD :)

Hi kaprini! WOW Welcome!! We were those goofy homies of Jab: Ping, me, tenkei, Tris-chan, JFC, kuno_thunder. We were all seated two rows behind. You might have seen us exchange the glowstick bag. Or search frantically during the concert for his "lost" ticket as an AX Staffer quizzed him, along with poor Holly.

Please extend my warm greets to you, Holly & Leah to visit and chat with us anytime. Thanks for being great seatmates. We were all WITNESS to his great pimping skills  :pimp: hahaha I love that guy.

Thank you, Foxy.

I feel your pain Tyler. The mixed emotions still ring through, that I am not giving my all to Jab. It is so awesome to see the tributes that do go around, esp. in this thread. fanfics and on the radio. The places he thrived in. Jab, I miss you everyday homie.

We wanna give MAD PROPS to everyone who has been spinning tribute after tribute on the radio, Tris-chan, Rei-chan, OpsMonkey, tru_harmony, Pikapikapika, Mini*wheat, tenkei, Odango, Kuno_Thunder, Ping. Big UPS to the fanfics peeps Comrade, Tyler, JFC, DO Me DO Me, strawb3rrykream reviving your stories in honor of Jabby.



Big SHOUT OUT to arun, L-San, Tuffty, Guchi_Jnr, chaz9891, and all Ladylove / The Perv / Red Light District posting y'all have done keeping Jab's work thriving.

daigong speaks on behalf of The Crack Staff thanks the HiPstaz who have postwhored in many ways, the surge in activity is one of the things me and Jab shit talked after AX. I'm so proud of everyone, this is why we do what we do. We look forward to new visitors and members.

Gonna make that Tribute Show this Saturday shine.

One thing Jab and I shared in common was our love of Konno Asami. Often, when I entered the chatroom, he'd greet me with "KonKon<3"

Sadly, I was upset over something he said in chat some time ago, and as a result, I stopped saying anything to him. Now, I regret that.

When I read he was ill, I planned to post some get well wishes, but I wasn't sure of the best thing to say. I intended to think about what to say and post later. I also was worried if I had the right considering how I acted toward him. Then, he passed away and it was too late. I've felt horrible since.

I'm sorry Jab. I hope you'll forgive me. R.I.P. and may there be an angel up there who looks like Konno.

KonKon<3

CARP! <'>>>< :hipheart:

We will continue the legacy that Jabronisaur dedicated his whole life to. As Masa said let us "stay positive and keep his spirit alive."

It does not matter if you are his best friend or new member. Jab's influence trickles down to us all.

We will be closing this thread after the Jabronisaur Tribute Radio Show cuz we felt it is time to smile again. That's how he'd want us to feel. It is optional to take off our sigs at the same time, I'm a rock it a bit longer. We will always remember Jabronisaur in our hearts. Let us continue the legacy that he has built with his selfless positive attitude.

The JPH!P Crack Staff declare that July 16th will forever be marked on the JPH!P Calendar as JAB! Day where we take the time to put up our sigs, play musics, write a few fics, and geek out. SHOW our Jabronisaur love.

On behalf of The Crack Staff, the entire JPH!P FAM, and Hello! Project fans worldwide - Thank you Chuck and the Marks Family for giving us a great human being like Jabronisaur into our lives.

Jabronisaur, our Guardian Angel! :hip angel:

Heads up. Ping called me this morning, told me he was on his way to visit Jab's bro. He twatted after:


Awesome Ping, way to rep JPH!P. There is no doubt we shall go as a group in the future. :jphip:

And there was also a message in my inbox from a fella whom I ran in at the airport, and also met in Seattle. Jab's impact was felt on him too.

His message:
Quote
To jphip.com,

Hello. I just found out that Jabronisaur aka Tim Marks just passed away. I would like to give my condolences to his family and friends.

I am desert_anime aka Rommel from H!O. I met many of you at MM@AX, especially on the last day at the airport after MM left. It was me who said that my all time favorite was Abe-san and when around the table asking your favorites. There was also another H!O member next to me that had his laptop with his all time favorite Tanaka-san as his laptop's wallpaper.

It's hard to believe that one of us passed away. I only meet him for a little while, so I don't know what to say or do, as I fellow fan, I will remember him and at my next concert (on August 9th) I will hold up JunJun's color glowstick and cheer for him, so as he can be there in spirit.

Again my condolences.

Take care.

-Rommel.

Still missing Jab every single day...
