Our heartfelt sympathies go out to his family, Liz, and everyone touched by him on UER/Infiltration.


PS: Inspired by Liz's post, Desmann and I just had a conversation confirming that we both wish to be organ donors and we both have it documented on our drivers license. We hope others will do the same in memory of Ninj.

** Pokes head in ** " Hi guys"

I want to first thank AV for giving me a chance to say something in this thread



Infiltration was one of about 3 Urbex websites I found back in 98. I was so taken aback not just by the organization Jeff had done, but his passion for exploration and explorers.


When I got my first website, I went to ask Jeff to link it, but when I checked he already had seen it and linked it, he seemed so down to earth. I really connected to that. He was always the nicest person in emails, we could have the most heated debates on UER, then have the nicest convo's VIA emails during the debate.

He was ALWAYS the voice of reason here. ALWAYS! When I ordered some of his Zines for the first time, the package got lost in the mail, he went so out of his way to make sure i got his zines, I still have the note on a blue notepad paper he included with the zines saying sorry for the mixup.


Ninj Came to Boston a few months ago, he had contacted me to explore around the area, and because of schedualling we set for a rain check


........ Jeff when I make it to the other side, I want to see all the stream tunnels they have to offer there.


Jeff Tried his life to be as stealthy as the air around us, Now his spirit will ALWAYS be the stealthiest member of ALL our journeys



Liz , your strenth though this has been amazing. Just absolutily amazing.


Jeff was a wonderful person and the first urban explorer I set my aspirations too, I looked up to Jeff. And he taught me an amazing amount of knowledge , Directly and Indirectly.



" Now they truly will never catch you."
Rest in peace Ninj.

My condolences and prayers go out to Ninj, his family, and friends. I wish him an eternity of endless, pain-free exploration. Of places that hold far, more fascination, than any he was able to encounter here.

Godspeed, Ninj.

RIP Ninj, we will miss you. Thank you for making me discovery the wonderful buffalo central terminal that is in my own town and I never knew it. It was wonderful meeting you and Liz there. Happy exploring in the next world.



I became fascinated with the BCT while working in the Buffalo area and after a few treks to the old terminal, my subsequent internet searches for more, led me to Jeff's site. I only met him once, at a lunch gathering in Toronto, and it's too bad I never got to meet him again. He was a true icon and inspiration to the UE community.

A sad loss for the exploration community, his reputation reached around the world and his writings inspired countless explorers... he will be missed, but not forgotten.

My thoughts go out to his family and friends.

I meet Ninj and explore with him. Even he is gone physically. He is still alive. In hearts of people who knew him, in hearts of people who he inspired, in his work zines and books, in places he explored. RIP his body and forever live his soul.

It's pretty much all been said, but Ninj felt like a friend to me even though we never met. He encouraged me (via PM) about my writing, and coming from as accomplished a writer as him, it gave me a great confidence boost. I always enjoyed reading his stories and am looking forward to his book.

My thoughts are with you, Liz, and the rest of those left behind by this tragic occurrence.

It really breaks my heart to hear about this and that I wasn't able to meet him before it happened. Ninj told me about all this long ago, but he never once seemed down about it. It's says a lot about Ninj's character that he was so positive about the whole thing.

Here's a good quote from one of the last conversations I had with Ninj that pretty much sums up his attitude:

I'm not just spouting mindless positivity when I talk about my optimistic attitude, though. I really do feel like this will work out, one way or the other, and I really do feel lucky when I wake up each morning. Being deeply in love helps a lot, and I don't know anyone more deeply in love than Liz and I. (Sorry for the mushiness, but I've got to be honest about what keeps me going.)

this was quite a shock, i just ordered his book from infiltration.org less than a week ago, i had no clue he had any sort of health problems. his site introduced so many people to exploring including me. it's very sad to see someone who had such an impact on exploring pass away. ill be sure to write some sort of memorial for him this week in the only abandoned building in my area.

My condolences to his wife and family
Rest in Peace Ninjalicious
Never stop exploring

Liz and family....much like everybody else in here, my families prayers and warm thoughts go out to you. I never really new Ninj other than to send him words of encouragement when he first posted that he had health issues. There's a poem I heard of CBC a while back that I'd thought I'd share. I guess if nothing else this has really opened my own eyes to the importance of signing that organ donation card and making my wishes known to all involved. Hopefully, this will have the same effect on many many more people so good folks like Jeff get those extra years and them some that they and there families so deserve.

Best wishes and hopefully Jeff is getting lots of exploring in with the great explorer above.

YOU ARE THE RAIN by Tetsuro Shigematsu

72 percent. That's how much water is in your body. And that water has been around here on earth for 4 and half billion years.

That means, the moisture in your breath was once at the center of a glacier during the ice age. In your frozen form, you carved valleys through unnamed mountain ranges.

And as many an ancient text will attest, there was once a Great Flood. You rained for 40 days and 40 nights, until the whole earth was blue.

And on one fine summer day you found yourself flowing down the river Jordan, as you flowed into the linen of a Jew from Nazareth who would change the world.

And on another day, a few years before you were born, you were a cloud, And a young girl studied your ever-changing face, wondering; what will my children look like?

And on another day, in complete darkness, you were floating in an amniotic sea, the temperature of blood, dreaming to the rhythm of two heartbeats.

And one day, your water as you know it will be no more.

And if you were loved, maybe you will be the tears of someone who weeps for you. Not because they're crying, but because their laughing so hard at the memory of how pathetic you looked, that time you got caught in the rain. And as they dab their cheeks, they'll stop to wonder, are you in heaven? When in fact, you've never been so near.

And one day, far from now, when this blue planet is no longer blue, you will find yourself at the center of a comet, a dirty hunk of ice tracing luminescent circles through the universe, and you will crash into a nascent world and become an ocean. Lightning will strike, and you will give rise to life. You are the rain.

*edit:sp*

The problem with the world is dumb people. I'm not advocating capital punishment for dumb people. I'm just suggesting we remove all the warning labels and let the problem solve itself.

Have you ever wanted, or felt the need to say something, only you can't, because nothing you can or ever could think to say would be adequate?

I first discovered urban exploration when a computer magazine called internet.au did a write-up on infiltration.org. From there I was taken in by the incredible pictures so many explorers took, and, hoping one day to emulate them, bought my first Minolta-clone SLR off eBay for 71 Australian dollars.

And on it goes. Today, one of my life's ambitions is to some day become a photojournalist. If that day ever comes to pass, I'll be able to directly trace it back to whatever day it was that Ninj first decided that maybe there was something in his quirky, indosyncratic hobby that might just be worth writing a 'zine about.

I remember reading on infiltration.org that "...the future of the zine is uncertain" and being disappointed, never once suspecting why.

From an emai:


Setting aside our personal differences, I wanted to pass along condolences to the passing of your friend Jeff/Ninj. Tim (Chronic) just informed me of the news earlier in email. Ninj's accomplishments and impact on the urban exploration community is well known, of course...and his passing is a loss to everyone.
