Recognize a JPHiP Legend: Jabronisaur

Jabronisaur banner by Sexy Beam


Then there is Jabronisaur: the consumate HiPster, a great friend. He joined us from the start and headed up our H!P Perv and Red Light District sections as a member of The JPH!P Crack Staff. He hosted his own radio show, Beware the JabberJocky! filled with video game and anime music. He joined the HiPstaz at Anime Expo 2009 in Los Angeles, CA and got to spread the JPH!P Way to Morning Musume members, esp. Jun Jun and Aika Mitsui. Sadly, Jabronisaur passed away on July 16, 2009. Tim Marks is up above, looking down upon us with his friendly laugh. We at JPHiP carry on his legacy of being incredibly kind and keeping up with his passions: The Geek and The Perv FOR LIFE. Head over to the forum as he lives on through his posts and threads, immortalized right here. Forever remembered.

We lost Jabronisaur on July 16, 2009 - right after our successful meet up at Anime Expo, where JPHiP pimped like no other, gathering 30+ in a room at a time, meeting dozens more along the way. At the forefront, was Jabronisaur whom as a member of the Crack Staff, broke down barriers and mingled with fans from all over the world and net - making them feel like family. He exemplified what it was to be a HiPster, and made us so proud he was just one of our homies.

To me. Being this close knit, we take the losses of such friends like Jab, ChrNo, Fushi, and marimari that much harder. Let this be a constant reminder, that you should never hold back to the people you really do love. Let them know, while they're living about your respect and approach to them. And this means, no matter how busy you get in school and work, HiPstaz gotta reach out to one another. I'm doing my damndest with this FIVE year anniversary of our awesome at AX 2009 and Sakura Con, we will form like Voltron and have many more WORLD TOURS to COME!

We at :hipheart: are truly honoured to be in contact with his family and friends and hear their stories to further prove we are truly blessed to have known such an awesome guy.

Our goal is to have the spirit of Jabronisaur live on forever with every good deed we do, to carry on what Jab built here at JPHiP, a community that is positive and caring every single day. Sometimes the smallest act of kindness can make the biggest difference.

A part of Jabby's childhood has been imortalized by his father, George in the book "Spirit Dancer"


Quote from: Jab's Father
Spirit Dancer is based on a role playing game I wrote when my three sons were teenagers. It was titled “Castle of the Kren Lord,” and we played it for hours on weekends. My youngest son, Timothy, and I had often talked about converting this game to a story or graphic novel, but as things go, we never did. When he died unexpectedly in 2009 I decided to write the book and dedicate it to him.


Grab a copy, and read all about his RPG Roots!

(thx Sexy Beam for the find, she made my sig)

Can it really be four years since we last met, Jab? How time has changed and really how has :hipheart: changed. The gaping hole still exists, people come and go but your memory still remains. Let us reflect upon this day and do that good deed. Whether it is greeting your neighbor, not stepping on that ant, or showing a new member at JPHiP the way. Tim "Jabronisaur" Marks lives on forever in our hearts. And this is what we do each July 16 with Be Like Jabronisaur Day spreading love, and being POSITIVE~ the JPHiP Way that Jab embodied in real life and online at JPHiP.com

Always smooth with da ladies, he had time for EVERYONE (thx ziggurat for the find)


To me. It just really starts with self. To do what JPHiP is known for, helping others and being positive. In our hectic lives, we gotta sit down and smell the roses and take the time to enjoy one another...something I have been guilty of. Where Jab is now to give me that virtual slap! haha. I miss him so much. To go through the text messages in my phone from him days before he passed. Watching these videos and reading his posts and seeing us together for Anime Expo 2009, he will forever live on in our hearts.

Our goal is to have the spirit of Jabronisaur live on forever with every good deed we do, to carry on what Jab built here at JPHiP, a community that is positive and caring every single day. Sometimes the smallest act of kindness can make the biggest difference.

So Legendary Jab is, he was a huge part in our festivities at Anime Expo 2009 in Los Angeles. This is just a sample gallery of how hard he represented JPH!P, helping to pimp the forum and keeping everyone feeling upbeat.

Even the final night that we saw him, he volunteered to guard the hANGRY & ANGRY autographed poster that we won in an auction:


Forever immortalized in a Morning Musume Fan Club DVD, front and centre, read his story from Anime Expo 2009 in the thread.

He is depicted in the ongoing webcomic Rascals drawn by mastergodai, college buddy of Jab, which is loosely based on their college days:
