I would personally like to thank CJ for all his contributions to, specifically- creating and managing the development of adventure conversions into the Fantasy Grounds virtual tabletop by SmiteWorks. CJ was my go-to-tech guy, my Dungeon Master, and most of all- my friend. He will be sorely missed by all of us here at

  1. CJ was a friend. I met him while working for GenCon. He will be missed by the many people that knew him. I am sure he is sitting up there with his dice and making Moses roll for initiative!

  2. That’s tough, especially to lose someone that you’ve shared such an important part of your life with. Keep cranking out the good stuff in his memory.

  3. Wow. Seems a really, really great guy. It just…”exudes” somehow.
    So sorry for the tremendous loss to everyone privileged to have known him;
    I would like to have been among that fortunate number.
    Rest well, CJ…

    My heart is broken over the loss of our greatest of friends, CJ. I met CJ when I was seventeen as a part of a small role playing group in Walla Walla and College Place. We all moved to Seattle and some of us Started Wizards of the Coast, Inc. CJ was always a character and was always first on the list to invite to games, events and parties. We love you CJ. We’ll keep the home fires burning!
