A former Cocoa Beach High football standout who went on to help the Florida Gators win a national championship died Thursday morning after he reportedly jumped off a building in Bellevue, Wash., officials confirmed Friday.
John Curtis, 24, whose current residence was listed as Kent, Wash., died about 8 a.m. after leaping from the fourth-floor railing above a restaurant in Bellevue’s Lincoln Square.
“The cause of death was blunt-force injury to the head and torso,” said James Sosik, investigator at the King County Medical Examiner’s Office, who confirmed the Curtis’ death. “It came to us as a suicide.”
Curtis contributed to the kickoff, kick return and punt teams as UF won its second national title in school history by beating Ohio State 41-14 in the BCS title game in Glendale, Ariz., in 2007.
“It’s tragic when a young life is lost,” Urban Meyer, the Gators’ head coach, said in a statement Friday afternoon. “I’m not sure how you describe the loss of life in words. John was a great young man who was a proud member of our Gator family. We grieve for him, his friends and his family and pray for their comfort.”
The defensive back suffered a knee injury in 2008, ending his career when he was a fifth-year senior.
“He was a good guy, well-liked team member,” Gators secondary coach Chuck Heater said Friday. “Players really liked him. He was a friendly guy with the team, and just dealing with the frustrations of the injuries, which were always hard for him to deal with and accept those things, just the disappointments of all of that. But he was a respected member of our team, that’s for sure.”
John Curtis was born on April 23rd, 1986 according to http://news.priceperhead.com/college-football-news/former-florida-gators-john-curtis-died-at-24-in-apparently-suicide-11157
Each letter of the name rules 9 years of life. Ages 0 to 27 are ruled by the sum of the month of birth and the first three letters of the name.
John Curtis April 23rd, 1986
10 (J is the 10th letter of the alphabet) + 15 (o is the 15th letter of the alphabet) + 8 (h is the 8th letter of the alphabet) + 4 (April) = 37
So from ages zero to twenty-seven he had the number 37 going on.
37 = Deeply emotional. Emotional wreck. Emotional rollercoaster.
4 + 23 +2+0+1+0 = 30 = his personal year (from April 23rd, 2010 to April 22nd, 2011)
30 year + 7 (July) = 37 = his personal month (from July 23rd, 2010 to August 22nd, 2010) = Deeply emotional. Emotional wreck. Emotional rollercoaster.
When his number (37 (ruler of his ages 0 to 27)) came up, that’s when he got to live/experience what he was here to live/experience. So unfortunately this was his month.
