RIP, Daniel Jezek published the following sad announcment,

Daniel Jezek

"We regret to announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Dan Jezek, owner and founder of Dan will be greatly missed by all of his family and many friends at Bricklink and around the world. A memorial fund is being set up and will be announced at a later date. If you wish to send condolences, you may do so via e-mail to condolences (at)

The website will continue under the ownership of the Jezek family. Eric Smith, owner of Northstar Computer Systems, will act as BrickLink Administrator. Northstar has been the host for BrickLink for the past decade. The current BrickLink moderators for the various aspects of the site are all continuing in their roles. Troy Ceferatti is resuming his role as Community Overseer.

The site will continue operating without interruption and all Bricklink users - buyers and sellers - can be reassured that the policies and fee structures will remain as before. Please remember Dan in your thoughts and prayers."

I wish you rest in peace!

Daniel's life was really short but full of accomplishment!
He dramatically changed an hobby and the life from almost every LEGO fan forever!
Somehow I also believe you had a decisive role changing the destiny of a giant - TLG. They should be eternally grateful.

Long live to BrickLink!

My condolences to the family and friends, and my eternal gratitude and appreciation to the mentor of BrickLink.
Indeed, a great loss to us all.

I would also like to send my condolences to his family and friends. The way in which he turned his hobby into something really useful to everyone who shares his passion is inspiring. Without him, there would be many sets and relived moments of my childhood that I would not have. He will be missed.
