Given that he had gone missing for a number of days, apparently, some people would not believe until they see his body or obituary to be convinced that the sad information about his passing was indeed true.

What caused James Jaronczyk death? He disappeared at sea in his 22-foot Progression Nauti Boyz race boat late Sunday afternoon.
Apparently, he died at sea after going missing for days and his body was found this morning.
That has got to be a painful one, and many of his colleagues have since been pained by his sad passing.
Fellow competitor, Julian Maldonado, said after learning of his passing, “I chased him around many times and vice-versa, and it always was a great time—especially after—regardless of who ended up with the checkered flag”. “In one of my first races, I went flying out of my 22-foot Velocity when my driver tried to sneak inside him on turn No. 2 in Morehead City (N.C.). “More than competition, he was a brother,” he continued. “I’m relieved for his family and friends that he was found. May he rest in peace.”
