The streaming community was shocked to hear that Twitch streamer and a known Overwatch figure, Joomla25, had passed away. The update came on May 24 from a Twitter user EeveeA (@EeveeA), who posted an excerpt from a Discord message stating:

"I'm so terribly sorry to let everyone know this. I've never delivered news like this. I'll spare everyone details because it's a sensitive matter and it doesn't feel right that I of all people would be the first to know out of everyone."

The address continued:

"Unfortunately Joom is no longer with us. As I receive any news or updates, I will let everyone know, but as of right now I think we need to give the matter some time. Let his family and close ones process this, and let us all mourn as a community."
Joomla is no longer with us....

The streaming community on Twitter was shocked to hear of the sudden passing away of a well-known and very well-liked Overwatch personality. Fans provided emotional messages on how Joomla guided fans in climbing the ranked ladder of the FPS game.

@EeveeA One day someone asked Joom how they could climb. He explained that you have to be happy with your life if you want to perform your best and be in a mindset to learn. Somehow, him saying that at that moment sparked an urge to better my real life and it changed everything. RIP

@EeveeA Even after reading this, my mind still doesnt believe it...Joom was one of the best man I've ever met, and a very accepting person. Even if I didnt talk much with him, it was obvious that the world needed more of him...May he rest in peace and hope his family is okay..

Cloud9's Valorant coach MoonChopper expressed his sadness and spoke about his friendship with Joomla.

@EeveeA I can't believe it. I'm so sad right now, I would always have catch up talks with joom throughout the years of our friendship. He was such a good guy over the 6 years I've known him, he never changed face with me at any point and man I really am going to miss him. Rip man

@EeveeA Rest in piece, joom. I remember opening weekend of apex I found him, when me and my team downed him and u eevee we tea bagged, and almost immediately I rushed into his twitch chat apologizing because I didn't want him to think It was mean spirited, I'd supported for years :(

The Twitch streamer hosted his last stream on May 13, and a clip of him closing out his final stream can be viewed below.
