Meredith Vogel also shared a touching tribute that read:
One of the very best things about escape rooms is all of the wonderful people we get to meet. Today, we have lost one of those wonderful people.
We have just learned of the passing of Tevin Cates.
We first met Tevin in a random booking over three years ago, and kept in contact with him.
He was currently working at Disney but in town visiting his mom. We kept in touch, and when we opened our escape room, he also was moving home, and he became one of our first game masters.
He helped us build many of our games, and even designed a game for us. He was a joyful person, truly fun to be around. He loved theater and dance, and at one point wanted to open his own escape room.
Please keep Tevin’s mom and sister in your thoughts. Rest in peace, friend.
