Xavier is/was a personal trainer in Marin County and trained me when I was a kid. He was an amazing guy, extremely popular and so in-demand as a trainer that he eventually opened his own gym. I loved him as a kid and when I Googled him recently to figure out where he was/how to get in touch, I was shocked and baffled to see the story about throwing his wife over the bridge. He talked constantly about how special his wife and kids were to him and was a real family man.

Several of the articles say it's a case of "karma" that he fell over instead, and I don't think that's true. Obviously this is a case of mental illness and a rapid deterioration that resulted in an obviously terrifying incident. I feel terrible for Xavier (and of course, his wife) and hope that he can overcome this. He had one of the biggest hearts of anyone I'd ever met and I'm just shocked that something like this could happen.
