Cash App Founder Bob Lee, 43, Was Stabbed To Death ‘On The Street’ In San Francisco

Bob Lee, creator of Cash App and a tech executive at MobileCoin, was killed early Tuesday morning after he was stabbed in San Francisco, according to friends, his company and police.

San Francisco police say they were called to the scene of a stabbing around 2:35 a.m. on Tuesday, where they found a 43-year-old male victim with stab wounds. He was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries and ultimately died.

Authorities are now investigating the case as a homicide.

MobileCoin told CBS News and others that Lee was the victim in that stabbing.

“Bob was a dynamo, a force of nature,” MobileCoin CEO Josh Goldbard told CBS. “Bob was the genuine article. He was made for the world that is being born right now, he was a child of dreams, and whatever he imagined, no matter how crazy, he made real.”

Lee’s dad, Rick Lee, mourned the loss of his “best friend” in a post on Facebook Wednesday.

He lost his life on the street in San Francisco,” the elder Lee wrote.

“Bob would give you the shirt off his back,” he added. “He would never look down on anyone and adhered to a strict no-judgment philosophy. Bobby worked harder than anyone and was the smartest person I have ever known.”

Bob’s brother, Tim Oliver Lee, wrote on Facebook that he is “saddened and disheartened” by the news.

“He really was the best of us,” he wrote. “I was so fortunate to grow up with him, and I feel like I’ve lost part of myself.”

Arrests regarding the stabbing have yet to be made and no information about the alleged suspect(s) has been made public at this time.
