A couple days ago the BoltFamily was dealt a serious blow to it’s diehard fan base.

Matt Rossi, @BoJackRusso as known on Twitter, has passed away.  I have spoken to Kristen, his other half of 14 years, via telephone tonight and confirmed this to be true.

Although I was never fortunate enough to meet him in person, he and I did have a day set up to hang out when I visit San Diego in August.

BoJack was absolutely hilarious and witty.  Furthermore, he was a great writer.  The only thing that rivaled his writing skills was his love of our Chargers.

Although I wasn’t lucky enough to talk to him in person, I had spoken to him on the phone many, many times.

His love and support of the Bolts could hardly be matched by any of us.

The details of his passing are unknown at this time.

Matt was 47 years young.
