Chris Christensen Obituary News: “A sincerely good man has been destroyed by one unfortunate night,” Longtime Fountain Valley Educator Leaves Final Facebook Post.
Chris Christensen of Westminster, California, died tragically and unexpectedly by suicide on Saturday, December 3, 2022.
Chris was identified as the man who died at Disneyland on Saturday night after jumping from the Mickey and Friends parking structure.
The incident occurred around 9pm and led to the park’s tram service being shut down as police responded to the scene.
In a Facebook post Chris called his “final post,” he gave a detailed narration of an “heated argument” that ensued between him and his wife, Marlena.
“I hate when people leave this Earth with so many unanswered questions. So, I hope this provides some insight and perspective…,” Chris wrote in the opening paragraph of his post.
“This is my wife, Marlena. Yes, you heard me correctly. Most of you don’t know this but we privately married 3 ½ years ago. Marlena and I love and adore each other and our relationship has been amazing…up until recently. Unfortunately, two weeks ago she and I got into a heated argument at home in front of the girls. Tempers were flared and strong words were exchanged between us. However, never in this exchange did I hit, slap, or hurt Marlena in any manner. Nor did I ever touch the girls (I never have and never will). I love the girls like my own and they know that, as does everyone else who truly knows me.”
“Unfortunately, Marlena’s anger got the best of her that night and she called the police, which landed me in jail that night. Yes, me! A man who has never hit or harmed ANYONE in his life!”
Chris was Principal at Fountain Valley School District for more than 20 years.
“…I have truly loved educating and leading thousands of students and families as a principal in FVSD for the past 21+ years,” Chris wrote.
On a final note, Chris wrote; “Take care everyone. Please, please, please be kind to one another! Treat each other with kindness and grace. There is too much anger in the world and people need to start treating each other better. What I’ve shared with you above is a prime example of how “anger” can really have long-lasting and extremely damaging effects on a person’s life.”
