On March 10th of this year, one of the funniest men on the planet committed suicide.
Richard John Colangelo... known and loved by millions as Richard Jeni, left us at the far-too-young age of 49.
The coroner’s report mentioned that Rich was “involuntarily hospitalized” on December 28th following a bout with suicidal depression, stating his desire to jump off of a building.
According to his family, Rich was diagnosed with “severe clinical depression coupled with bouts of psychotic paranoia.”
It is sad to know that Rich suffered so much... and that it came to such a sad ending.
He will be missed...
