Jonas won the Classic Tetris World Championship 7 times since he began his professional Tetris career in 2010. He is survived by his wife, Heather Ito, who herself is a 1 time Dr. Mario champion, winning in 2019. Vince Clemente of the Classic Tetris World Championship team released this statement:

It is with broken hearts we share that Jonas Neubauer, 7-time CTWC champion, passed away suddenly on January 4.

Jonas has been an absolute pillar of positivity and humility to our CTWC family. We could have never asked for a greater champ, role model and friend. He was kind, genuine, hilarious, incredibly talented, and a brilliant ambassador for the game. While he was the biggest final boss he always had the warmest heart. He will live on as a legend to our community and many others around the world.

Jonas, we miss you, we love you, and we thank you for inspiring us to always be our best.

Rest in peace our mighty hero.

Rest in Peace legend.
