Cash App founder Bob Lee stabbed and killed

Bob Lee, a technology executive who founded the mobile payment company Cash App and previously worked at Square, died Tuesday after he was stabbed near downtown San Francisco, according to his family.

San Francisco police said officers responded to a report of a stabbing around 2:35 a.m. Tuesday. The officers found a 43-year-old man with apparent stab wounds. He was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries and died later, police said.

Authorities did not name the man; Lee’s father and brother identified him as the victim.

“Bobby worked harder than anyone and was the smartest person I have ever known. He will be missed by all those that knew him,” Richard Lee said in a Facebook post, which was accompanied by a news article about his son’s stabbing. “Thank you to those who have reached out in support.”

The two men had been living in Miami since October after having moved there from California, his father said in the post. They had grown especially close after Bob Lee’s mother died in 2019. NBC News could not immediately confirm why Bob Lee was back in the Bay Area.

“I’m so saddened and disheartened to lose my brother,” Tim Oliver Lee wrote on Facebook. “He really was the best of us. I was so fortunate to grow up with him, and I feel like I’ve lost part of myself.”

Bob Lee had been working as the chief product officer of the cryptocurrency company MobileCoin. He was previously chief technology officer of Square (now known as Block), a financial technology start-up co-founded by the former Twitter chief Jack Dorsey.

Lee went on to create Cash App, a money transfer service.

He was also an investor in Elon Musk’s SpaceX venture, as well as other tech firms, such as the social audio app Clubhouse, according to his LinkedIn profile. He used the handle “crazybob” for his LinkedIn and Twitter pages.

The World Health Organization confirmed to NBC News on Wednesday that Lee offered his “support and expertise” during the pandemic, saying in a statement that “Bob built a large part of the server for the WHO Covid-19 App.”

In a statement Wednesday, Joshua Goldbard, the founder and CEO of MobileCoin, said Lee “passed away yesterday” and praised his business acumen. He did not specify Lee’s cause of death.

“Bob was a dynamo, a force of nature. Bob was the genuine article,” Goldbard said. “He was made for the world that is being born right now, he was a child of dreams, and whatever he imagined, no matter how crazy, he made real.”
