It’s a sad day for the WordPress community. I write this with a heavy heart, that Jesse Petersen —  a Genesis Preferred Developer, theme and plugin developer, and so much more — lost his fight with Cystic Fibrosis today.

He was a WordPress user since 2005, a developer since 2008 and a friend to many.

I’m pretty sure; I was better off knowing him! Many would agree!

Jesse Petersen

I didn’t personally, know Jesse — but he was a great member of our community. I am not sure what to say. I got to know him better only after he went public with his Cystic Fibrosis genetic disease. I feel like telling you all about him in a few points below.

It’s my way to remember him! Jesse:

What Can We Do?

I wish if the WordPress foundation — or a non-profit fund could be set up for folks like him. The awesome WordPress community could be more awesome that way!

Support His Family

Jesse leaves behind a wife and two precious boys who will be going through a lot in the upcoming days. They also could use all the help they can get for last expenses and going forward. Ben Meredith has setup a Give fundraiser to help with the last expenses and for the family going forward.

Prayers for him and his family. I hope I can urge you to support Jesse’s family →

It’s the least we can do, for all his contribution towards our lives and the WordPress community!
