It is with profound sadness that we bring you the news of the passing of our co-host and dear friend Matt Dale.
Matt died on Christmas Day after suffering an apparent heart attack. He is survived by his partner Sharon and his seven-year-old son, Zack.
All of us here on the QLP team are heartbroken, and the podcast is going on a temporary hiatus as we regroup and take time to heal.
Please keep Sharon and Zack in your thoughts and consider helping support them in this difficult time by contributing to this GoFundMe campaign set up by Matt’s family.
The outpouring of love and support from the Quantum Leap fan commuinty — as well as from the cast and crew of Quantum Leap — has been nothing short of astonishing. And as his longtime friends and colleagues, Albie, Allison, Hayden and I can’t thank you enough for your kind words, and for helping honor Matt’s memory and his considerable legacy in the Quantum Leap community.
We are currently working on a proper tribute special, which will be coming soon.
We miss you Matt. We love you. Our lives won’t be the same without you. Rest in peace.
The Quantum Leap Podcast would like to ask anyone interested in recording a short video memory of Matt or a condolence video for the QLP Matt Dale tribute show to send it in before Saturday, Dec 30 at noon Eastern. Please make the video around two minutes or less and in landscape format.
Please send the video or link to the shared uploaded video to QuantumLeapPodcast@gmail.com
Any video submitted may be used during the tribute show.
Please share this anywhere you think friends of Matt might see it.
