Reports say that on Tuesday morning in San Francisco, California, Cash App creator Bob Lee was stabbed to death. Lee was a tech executive.
He was 43 years old.
Police in San Francisco say that the tech mogul, who used to be the chief technology officer of Square, was attacked at 2:35 a.m. in the downtown Rincon Hill neighborhood.
When police arrived, they found a person with multiple stab wounds. CBS News later confirmed that the person was Lee.
Lee was taken to a hospital nearby, but his injuries killed him there, police told the outlet.
As of early Wednesday, no one had been caught.
The outlet said that San Francisco police haven’t said anything about the suspects.
The Post has asked the San Francisco Police Department what they have to say about it.
Jake Shields, who is Lee’s friend and a champion in mixed martial arts, said that Lee was attacked while walking.
Shields tweeted, “He was in the “good” part of town and seemed to be the target of a random mugging or attack.”
According to his LinkedIn page, Lee had been the chief product officer at San Francisco-based MobileCoin since November 2021.
On Tuesday night, his coworkers started to say nice things about him. The CEO of MobileCoin, Joshua Goldbard, said that Lee was “a force of nature.”
“Bob was a powerful force. “Helped bring into the world Android and CashApp,” Goldbard told ABC7.
“Moby was his dream: a wallet for the 21st century that kept things private. Every day, I’ll miss him.”
Lee also worked at Google, where he was in charge of Android’s core library team and helped launch the most popular operating system in the world, according to his profile on MobileCoin’s website.
Later, Lee started the social network Present and invested in companies like Figma, Clubhouse, Beeper, and Faire.
When COVID-19 spread around the world, Lee helped the World Health Organization with its mobile app and later helped start a company that lets people test themselves at home.
