Dante Valmont -DJ Sith - Jun 13 12:40am

Good evening, everyone. Tonight I bring some unfortunate news. I've recently learned that a former student of ours, Dante Valmont, passed away while studying abroad in Greece. Dante joined our ranks in 2003 and was an active duelist, RP'er and storyteller. Our condolences go out to his family, his friends here at the Jedi Academy, and his friends abroad.

Sad news. Read his obituary, interesting to see that we both went to the same university. Never knew him personally, but we did share a lot of late night saber battles; what an index finger on this kid! Hope heaven has T1. Peace to you and yours!

I did not know him, but from the comments below, he seemed like a great member of the academy, and a good person in real life. Peace be upon him.

R.I.P, and let the force be with you...

Dante has been a mentor to me a long time ago and taught me a great deal in this game. Even though it has been some time ago, my heart and thoughts still go out to his family and friends.

You will be missed.

I did a quick search and found this. I doubt it's nothing DJ and JJ hadn't found, but for those interested, here's his obituary.

DJ and I found out about this recently, and spent some time confirming this information. Unfortunately this happened in April 2008, when he and another student were hit by a car on a sidewalk in Greece. He didn't recover from his injuries, unfortunately.

Dante was massively influential in the way a lot of the most highly regarded instructors in the JA played the game, and was by his own right one of the best duelists in this community. He had a very cerebral approach to the game and helped train numerous people despite never having became an official instructor here.

When I first the met guy we didn't get on, but later on we became pals and had some great laughs together. Unfortunately a lot of us lost touch with him, and it was very hard to accept this news.

Best wishes to Eric's family and friends. We'll miss the big Greek bastard. :(

Ah awful, very strange, I was thinking about Dante the other day. I remember meeting him first on the public servers and finding out about his legacy with the JA. Feels like real life is never far

Sorry to hear about this sad news. I don't recall if I met Dante or not, but my prayers go out to his family. He's become one with the Force now.
