Let the memory of JEROLD be with us forever.
  • 43 years old
  • Born on September 30, 1975 in Middletown, Ohio, United States.
  • Passed away on November 3, 2018 in Clarksville, Ohio, United States.
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, JEROLD HAAS who may have made it to be 43 years old , born on September 30, 1975. His life was ripped away from us and his life ended too soon.  He took off August 31st, 2018 not telling anyone what he was doing or where he was going. His remains found November 3, 2018.  Many are heart broken. He had a big heart and a kind gentle nature. Many knew him as Darry, Tonehog or Knot,Not Naught! online.  What a tragedy that can never be reversed.  We'll remember him forever. He wasn't a person easy to forget. He left behind many online friends, his music online under tonehog and computer videos on youtube.

We know he went in the woods to get away, think and be alone.  All his computers, cell phones, headphones etc.which were normally in his backpack were accounted for. All of computers and phones after drying out were operational. His wallet with  cash, bank card, credit cards were in his pants pocket.  The mystery is why he was found so far away from his backpack with all his computers. He NEVER went anyplace without his backpack and computers. His life was in his computers. He was a brilliant highly skilled computer programmer who spoke three foreign languages. There was evidence he had been camping and living off the land. People witnessed him walking on the road and being in that area.

Because he wasn't found soon after his death, his exact cause of death can't be determined. His bones showed he had a broken femur and dislocated hip.  He would most likely not have been able to stand or walk with those injuries at least for the distance he was found from his backpack. Those injuries normally occur from a fall from a very great height or an auto accident being hit by an auto or in an automobile accident. There were 2 twitter posts deleted the last week in September. Where he was or how those posts got deleted is unknown. The police say it is too difficult to obtain that information from twitter.

His remains which appear to be dumped were found in a thicket near a soybean field at 183 Spring Hill Road, Clarksville, Ohio owned by Mr. Wm. C. O'Bryan, President & Chief Executive Officier of S.P.A., Inc./Softpak LTD. The question is why was his remains found so far away from his backpack? How did he sustain such life threatening injuries in a soybean field?  Why has Mr. Wm. C. O'Bryan, Jr. refused to let Jerold's Mother see where Jerold died and why has he posted no trespassing signs and blocked the road to prevent access to his driveway?  What is Mr. Wm. C. O'Bryan, Jr. afraid of or what is he trying to hide? 

Bottom Line- ACCIDENT OR ACT OF VIOLENCE?  Warren County Coroner says- UNDETERMINED

Jerold had unplugged from all technology. In his backpack he had a New Testament with Psalms. My son is finally in a place of safety.  May he rest in peace and I so look forward to seeing him again soon at the resurrection.

The popular and well known technology magazine from New York - "WIRED"- has an article about Jerold Haas and the Tessr Foundation on the one year anniversary of Jerold's death and having gone missing in the November/December 2019 edition.  This edition is now available in November written by Brendan I. Koerner . (Author of  the Book "The Skies Belong to Us") 

Some of the information in this article is inaccurate. Some of the information used in this article describing my son's character came from people who were supposedly friends of my son. Money is the one thing you can count on to destroy lifelong friendships as well as marriages.  I pray God will forgive them for their  incorrect assumptions, jealousy and for speaking evil of the dead. When you point your finger at someone in accusations, remember there are three fingers pointing back at you. ..www.wired.com/story/strange-life-mysterious-death-....

What I've learned is that my son's online friends were so much better people  and friends to him than his real life (meatface) associates.  No wonder he spent so much time with them.


Jerold's own words from his twitter account

Two people conjoined by the spirit, never to be separated again, no matter the distance. Death is only a long nap until we awake again, right next to each other.
PLEASE REVIEW GALLERY OF PHOTOS, LIFE, STORIES TABS AT THE TOP AND FEEL FREE TO ADD A TRIBUTE TO HIS MEMORY.

“The LORD said, ‘What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground.’“ (Genesis 4:10)  God hates the shedding of innocent blood. Jerold's blood cries out from the ground.

If anyone has any information that might lead to solving the mystery of what happened to Jerold, please contact Major Steve Arrasmith, Investigation Division Commander, Warren County Sheriff's Office at 513-336-0070 or  jkrustywallace44490@yahoo.com email for Jerold's Mum. 

His grieving family is still looking for answers. We don't know when he died, exactly where he died and why he died or how he died. There is something of his that is missing. Where and how did those twitter posts get deleted?  I don't think it's too much to ask to test his clothing to see if he bled out.or find out where and when those twitter posts were deleted. Someone in Clarksville knows, saw or heard something. Please help us find some answers.

The police are no longer investigating the case and none of his personal property has been returned. 
IS MY SON A THROW AWAY VICTIM?

REMEMBER:  THERE IS NO AGONY LIKE THAT OF AN UNTOLD STORY!

Post from one of his online friends regarding Wired.com article

An article about my friend and mentor in all things from coding to chaos, Jerold Haas/tonehog/Compy. I'd say I miss you but *waves at computer* you're always with me

We may have not always got along, however he was a bigger part of my life than my on sons. He now is Resting In Peace. No one or anything can harm him now.

He was my nephew. The little boy that called me Nonnie. Although we rarely saw each other as adults, when we did he always called me aunt Connie and showed me respect. He really was a diamond in the rough. I’ll always love and miss you Jerry.

Hey thank you so much for good memory of online friendship we've shared. It's so sudden and shocking news I knew from your mom that you are no longer here. Although we didn't chat much, but I do remember good memory you left a mark on our friendship. You have nothing to worry about from now. Fair well compositeforce.

Jerold was a great mentor and friend online. I had known him for 7 years. A lot of people in the online communities looked up to him. He will be missed.
We had a running joke that he was going to have an army of Scottish fold kittens. The kittens would be able to sneak into enemy territory and not be detected because of their cuteness. He would always refer to them as “the folds.”
