there was another DC messenger named Chip who also graduated from B-CC (Bethesda Chevy Chase High School)
Chip Cashel was a skater who sweat it out on the bike as a messenger
scrapping for Apple


it is not my place to go into specifics
but Chip was troubled
Chip Cashel battled depression
after work one summer day Chip Cashel took his own life by jumping off the roof of a Glover Park apartment building


Chip Cashel was a good guy and I am certain he is missed by many

Chip was a very cool guy. I grew up 2 houses down the road from him. Very cool family all around, all of them were super smart and fun people and welcoming. It was a shock when we all heard - very, very sad. Growing up in DC can be a pressure cooker, we lost our valedictorian in a similar way. Chip was definitely looked up to by us, always doing something cool, built a skate ramp in his driveway, introduced me to Metallica and gave my brother a Black Sabbath LP that I wish I had now. As much younger kids we all used to catch salamanders in his backyard stream. Great guy, so sad for him and his family. Never knew what his struggles were exactly but sometimes I still think of him to this day.
