Rolando Dusuau
03.26.22, Anonymous, San Francisco, Ca., They found my cousin's body yesterday.. he jumped

04.01.22, C., San Francisco/Marin, regarding: Rolando Dusuau 3/25/2022, Jumper is not unknown but loved. The weight of this cold world was overwhelming overbearing and which he didnt overcome. Yet he jumped into the deepest of last thoughts and drowned in pain hurt and sorrow. Leaving behind precious boys which he loved. Tragic and sad. I love you cousin. Wish you would have reached out. Wish your humor and Witt could have pulled you from the darkest hours and reveled time was still on your side.

01.28.22, jumper, 3:45p, male, died
unknown
02.01.22, Df, Marin county, I witnessed a jump at 345 in the afternoon while driving north on Friday 1/28. I saw the man climb over the railing just before the south tower. I had only a brief view but I hope you can find closure.

02.05.22, Wren M., Livingston, MT, Thank you so much for that information. That was my brother, and my family and I are absolutely devastated. Does anyone have any other information about what you saw that afternoon? Im just wondering for my own peace of mind. Thank you so much for your time.

02.13.22, Stephanie M., Berkeley, CA., Wren, my deepest condolences on your families loss. He was part of my chosen family and we're devastated as well, he was someone I trusted and knew I could turn to. I would have known what happened sooner but the one medical examiner I didn't think to call was Marin, so I found out the next morning. I miss him so much and keep expecting him to come through the gate. I will be putting up a small memorial on the bridge next week with a couple friends. I hope you find peace in time.

Annie Vang
01.21.22, Friend, Sacramento, Annie Vang, Followed her love, Vinh Nguyen off the bridge. Her body was recovered 1/20/2022 (see 01.14.22 below.)

01.23.22, Heartbroken, San Francisco, CA., She had a dark past. She carried a lot of weight on her shoulders. She was in a toxic relationship. In which, he took his life on the Golden Gate. It caused so much guilt and remorse for Annie. And with everything that built up inside, she too, went to the same bridge and took her life. His body has not been discovered yet, but hers have. Our hearts and scattered. I wish I knew of the troubles She was facing. I would've held her hand and saved her. Her family is asking for information on WHO drove her to SF. None of her friends are talking. But someone knows. If you know, or you're the one who drove her, SHAME ON YOU. But you need to step forward and announce yourself and answer to the repercussions. Give her family some kind of closure. Annie, you are now free from all the weight you were carrying. We hope to one day, find you in God's kingdom. You are terribly missed. And our hearts will always be broken for you. (such a tragic event. sorry for your loss.)

01.22.22, Niki, Az., How did he jump? Aren't there barriers now? (we thought so as well. being as we are mostly focused on the skyway bridge here in florida, we'll have to look into the status of the ggb barrier. any ggb barrier insight is welcome.)

10.18.21, jumper, 7:00pm, female, lived
04.12.22, anonymous, illinois, I pray that nobody saw the jump, or the green windbreaker and small black purse that were left by the bridge. if, by chance someone did see this, it was the writer of this comment that jumped off the ggb at roughly 7 pm in October of last year.
i was rescued from the water by the coast guard after about 25 minutes, and received care at marin county general, and was transferred to stanford later to receive further care.
the main purpose of this comment is to provide closure if by chance anyone saw (although I am fairly certain that no-one did), and I pray that a prospective jumper sees this.
if you're someone who has found this site in your research, I beg you to read more about what will happen to your body if you jump. it is not a beautiful nor guaranteed swift death. further, you are so fucking unbelievably wrong to believe that nobody will care.
it effects everyone in a community, especially anyone who knew you regardless of the length of time. you are traumatizing the people close to you, and they will spend the rest of their lives asking themselves what they could have done differently.
please at the very least tell someone in your life what you're thinking of, what they will say and how they can help will be far more impactful than some stranger on the Internet. I wish that I had done that before permanently fucking up my body and losing the ability to do the things that I loved.

07.12.21, Em K., Oakland, CA., regarding: 07/11/21, I was out fishing when we heard there was someone drowning beneath tower 2. We motored over as fast as we could and found a man, pale skinned with a tattoo, floating in the water. We could not save him and radioed the coast guard who retrieved his remains. Does anyone know who this man was?

10.04.21, Aiden C., Richmond, CA., Em K. of Oakland, CA. I think I know who this man was. I'm not 100% sure and it could be my best friend who jumped. If you have more info I'd like to know. Thanks!

Reuben B.
03.31.21, ryan, fort worth, tx., passed a man who jumped shortly after we passed him on the bridge. I have a short video clip of him standing there as I panned the area. id like to know more about him if someone that knew him comes across this. (see a request from Arielle B., below. feel free to send your video.)

06.18.21, Martin E., Petaluma, In response to Ryan, Fort Worth, TX., Reuben B. from Napa, CA., left his parents house telling them he was going for a walk. Reuben took an Uber to the Bridge where he jumped to his death. His remains have not been recovered.

12.15.21, Arielle B., Napa, CA., In Response to Ryan, Ft. Worth, TX. Reuben was my youngest brother. It would mean a lot to me and my family to see the footage of Reuben on the bridge. Please, any little piece of him I can see or touch. I am desperate and in so much pain. I'd be happy to talk to you and tell you all about the amazing, loving, brilliant being that is Reuben. Please. (ryan left no contact info with his comment. if he sees your request and contacts us, we will connect you both. sorry for your loss and good luck.)

10.20.20
10.20.20, Ramona, Palm springs, Unfortunately I cannot jump since the bridge is being fixed. That was last hope/dream from all the miserable life I have suffered since being born. Having been mistreated and abused death would have been the answer to finally rest in peace.

07.18.21, Aaron, Vacaville, CA., regarding: Ramona palm springs who wanted to jump: Please tell me she hasent gone through with it Ramona if your still out there and you are reading this please don't do it you might have Ben dealt a crummy hand so far but tomorrow's another day and things will turn around people care about you becouse you matter you are special please believe that it's true

Miles
04.24.22, Deanna B., CA., regarding: Miles, early 2020, His name was Miles. I heard that Miles had jumped to his death while I was incarcerated at Marin County Jail. We had met in rehab months earlier, and he was one of the funniest most lovable humans Ive ever known. I spoke with him on my way to turn myself in, and he told me to stay strong, and that hed write me. I never heard from him again. He was brilliant and extremely special. He was cooler than I could ever hope to be. He was full of wit and sarcasm, and so generous and loyal to those he loved. The world would be so much better had he stayed. I think of him so often. If anyone has any further info on Miles, please share. I never knew his last name because of meeting in Alcoholics Anonymous. It would mean a lot to find his family and be able to reach out to them, or even just see a picture of him if he had an online presence. I will love him forever. (thank you for your story. if we get anything about him, we will contact you.)

02.03.15, 2:40pm, female
02.03.15, joe m., San Francisco, (2:40pm, female), I was working at a restaurant construction site right by the northbound toll booth area, police sped as i was about to drive across so i was curious. As I reached about midway between the spans i saw the cluster of police and firemen and on the outside of the rail a younger dark haired woman wearing a purple top. I stopped at the vista point out of interest in how this would unfold and saw the coast guard vessels and other watercraft in the water below her. I snapped a few pictures on my phone.

03.10.11, stupidity
03.11.11, sfgate.com, SAN FRANCISCO -- A 17-year-old boy on a field trip with his Sonoma County high school class leaped from the Golden Gate Bridge on Thursday, but survived and was able to swim to shore with a surfer who went out to rescue him, authorities said.
The boy is a junior at Windsor High School whom officials did not identify because of his age. Some students said he might have leaped to impress his classmates, but for now the California Highway Patrol is investigating the matter as an attempted suicide, said CHP Officer Chris Rardin.
The boy jumped at 11:15 a.m. from the east sidewalk near the south tower, the CHP said. He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he was expected to survive.
Some witnesses said he broke his tailbone and damaged his lungs in the fall, but a Windsor Unified School District press release said he suffered no severe injuries beyond bruising and tenderness. Hospital officials said they cannot release specific information.
Frederic Lecouturier, 55, said he was surfing under the bridge when he saw the boy drop into the waves.
"I thought, 'Well, he's going to die,' and then it was a miracle when he popped up alive," said Lecouturier, of San Rafael. "I paddled out there, and he told me he jumped 'for kicks.'
"That's when I lost it and told him what he did was wrong, that life is precious, and he should not take risks like that. I mean, he's a kid, he's got his whole life ahead of him."
Lecouturier said the boy was about 5 feet tall, "built like a wrestler" and had a brown ponytail. "There was a stiff wind coming out of the south, and I think that broke his fall and helped save him," he said.
Surviving the drop was remarkable considering the spot the student leaped from is more than 200 feet off the water - and 99 percent of the estimated 1,500-plus people who have jumped from the bridge since it opened in 1937 died from the fall.
Seven people have jumped to their deaths from the bridge this year, officials estimate. Last year, the count was 32.
Golden Gate Bridge District spokeswoman Mary Currie said the number of people attempting suicide off the span has grown from about 20 a year in the early 2000s to about 30 annually in the past few years.
The district has plans to install safety nets on the bridge, but the final design is not complete and the installation is a couple of years away at best, Currie said.
Rumors tore through the student body and the common thread was that it appeared the boy jumped of his own accord and that onlookers were upset by the experience. The boy recently transferred from another school, many said.
"He did it to try to look cool," said one classmate, who did not want to be identified. "He said he'd jumped off bridges before." Another student who said he was on the scene tweeted that students tried to stop the boy before he leaped.
Rardin said the boy jumped as he was walking on the bridge with about 45 other students on a school field trip.
"I've heard a bunch of things about how this happened, but we haven't come to a conclusion yet," he said. "I do know he's very lucky to be alive." (there are several hundred comments following the story.)

Christian Silva
Owen, Marysville, ca, Christian was my wifes first born he was the absolutly the most fantastic special young man I ever knew .he was the ideal of what i consider a real man he never asked for favors and wouldn't accept money if he already had some. He was a real rough and tumble guy that played first string high school football and always held a job .he loved the Denver's Broncos and watched them win the super bowl with me . At 300 am a highway patrol officer came to my house where i was asleep with Christians mother Charlene silva owen .he asked if we were the parents of christian silva I? I answered yes and he went on to say a passing motorist witnessed christian jump off the bridge and notified authorities a coast guard volley recovered his body within 15 min of jumping and he was dead. It was the hardest thing I ever did to tell his mother the news and I had to bury her 6months later she literally died of a broken heart at age 38. I know that things are hard to understand .my memories and perspective is that its extremely difficult to spot the behaviour symptoms of a person intending to commit suicide but if a person can spot a stranger and see in his eyes compassion they might reach out for help as it happened to me three times after Haitians and Charlene passing three complete stranger came up to me while I was out in public and out of the blue confided to me their desire to kill themselves .and because of my experience with my sons suicide and also my father suicide I was able to convince them to seek out and I took thetime to go with them to get professional help.

google
07.23.22, Bob J., Denver, CO, Hi, I think this golden gate jumpers page has been removed from the Google search index. They Skyway Bridge jumpers is still in Google, and going to other bridges at the bottom of that page seems to be the only way to get to the Golden Gate jumper page. I think that's why there haven't been posts in a while (hopefully I'm wrong). It would be helpful for friends and family members looking for answers and those posting info to help others out if this was in Google search results. Not sure if noindex tag was added to the page or unindex was on purpose or if Google removed for some reason. (we have no control how google functions their searches. we employ no 'noindex' or 'unindex' tags. this whole website has been throttled to various degrees for many years now. it's clear that they'd rather no one discuss suicide. not sure what else we can do to improve things.)
