By Scott Carlson, Rakeback.com Staff Writer
The four year old son of professional poker players Chip and Karina Jett passed away today. The cause of his death was not immediately released.
The entire poker community has reached out to the Jett’s during their time of need. Here is just a sample of the many people who took to twitter to send their condolences:
Matt Savage – Our hearts go out to Chip, Karina, and Athena Jett today for the loss of their son and brother Apollo.
Johnny Grooms – Thoughts and prayers go out to The Jett Family.
BJ Nemeth – There can never be enough condolences for yesterday’s tragic news, but everything I can offer is headed to friends in Las Vegas.
Jennifer “Jennicide” Liegh – My deepest condolences to the Jett family…my thoughts and prayers are with you guys
Joe Sebok – So sad. So unfair. My heart’s broken today. Condolences go out to Chip & Karina and family. Lost young son, little Apollo.
Michael Mizrachi – R.I.P Apollo Jett. Our deepest condolences to the Jett family.
The Jett’s first were introduced to the non-poker community when they appeared on the WSOP broadcasts on ESPN at the beginning of the poker boom. Often times one of them would play while the other watched the kids. Truly one of the great poker families around.
