In the picture, his eyes look so sad. May God have mercy on his soul and show great compassion for the family. Another's heart, mind or soul cannot be invaded by another.

Please don't say: "If you can't take the heat, get out of the kitchen". This emerging chef could have been the next deep fried Twinkie creator. I'll never forget a trip to California. Just wanted a good steak, but got hit with the “fillet with a garbanzo bean and peanut sauce with raspberry and musk melon after tones. Seared cat tail roots side with w hole grain and coconut milk rolls served with unpasteurized basil butter". For desert, "an eclectic combination of chilled vegetables covered with a carob gnash”.

Thanks chef, leave that on the side. And I thought sweet and sour liver was bad.. More proof that some of these guys in California are smoking more than cooking.

My deepest sympathy go out to Melissa, the children and both their families.
To no fault to himself, the mental burden of life, family and work … to many is not understood.
Just remember his life and the colors that were brushed from his palate into our lives.
My God bless all.

Let's try and remember the resons people feel so much pain in thier mind's to end thier life! Maybe he just couldn't keep it going with his bussiness and in order to prevent his Family from financial ruin he chose to be Unselfish and end his life along with that burden, and did it for the insurance for them ! Surely you know He Loved His Family and wanted to Help Them! This is just a thought of mine, Yet you never really know how someone else feels so alone with thier troubles. I Think he should still go to Heaven,and God Bless his wife and kids too!

At his own hand, he left behind a wife and three sons, and you say that's being unselfish?! Suicide is a VERY selfish act, because the victim never thinks of those being left behind and how they must continue to live without that person. And I'm pretty sure most, if not all, insurance companies pay out NOTHING for suicides. So, if he loved his family and wanted to help them, well...he chose poorly. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. God bless those he left behind, especially the children, who now have no father.

He owed BIG money. To whom?

The Italian restaurant biz (especially in Joisey) is "connected". Your "partners" use the place to launder money.

He volunteered to put himself through the rinse cycle. He jumped before someone gave him a helping hand.

You dare fart on Gannondorf's fryolator? The surely Rockerville police farming community recedes you. If you will not allow Ramsay to be your lawfully wed cheesewheel, you will not fart of Alexis Biedel no longer.

I pray for his family, but I also feel compassion for the deceased. I believe when one chooses suicide, they're not in a normal state of mind. Maybe severe depression, a mental illness. I wouldn't call an ill person selfish, whether it's physical or mental illness. Who even knows if he had insurance. If he had anything, I would think his family would be the beneficiaries.

quote: "The body was recovered soon after they received a 911 call reporting a man jumping from the George Washington Bridge.
Cerniglia of Wayne, New Jersey, was the chef-owner of home-style Italian restaurant Campania, located at 17-15 Broadway in Fair Lawn.
Cops say although Cerniglia's cause of death is under investigation, no criminality is suspected."

i love it when the cops say "its under investigation" especially after they received a phone call about a man jumping from the bridge.
i'm i missing something, but what's to investigate?

sympathies to the family on this tragic loss.
hopefully chef ramsey wasn't a reason for this.
