To our brother Chester,  

It has been a year since your passing—a surreal rotation of grief, heartbreak, refusal, and recognition.  And yet it sill feels like you are close by, surrounding us with your memory and your light.  Your one-of-a-kind spirit has authored an indelible imprint on our hearts—our jokes, our joy, and our tenderness.

Eternally grateful for the love, life, and creative passion you shared with us and the world.  We miss you more than words can express.


M, J, D, R, B

An year has passed by over the tragic incident of Chester. I remember when the news broke out regarding his suicide i was at my essay champ office and was itching to see the news for myself to confirm it. Sadly, it was not a fake news and chester really did commit suicide. LP can never be the same without him.

Can't believe it's been a year, without Chester. I know he was a unique person with a heart for other people, he was an amazing person with the type of influence he had with the rest of the band. I know when I heard about that suicide, I couldn't believe it, I didn't want to believe it. Chester was one of my favorite band members that I looked up to, Linkin Park has been my favorite band since their first song came out on the airwaves. I will miss hearing Chester's voice over and over again but I will never forget what I've learned from Linkin Park's music. Thank you Chester for sharing your talent and Linkin Park for everything you have done
