Terribly sad situation.
Former Kitchen Nightmares contestant Joe Cerniglia committed suicide after jumping off the George Washington Bridge in NYC last week. New Jersey restaurateur/husband/father-of-three Cerniglia was reportedly in deep debt.
Here's what the show's host Gordon Ramsay had to say about this tragedy:
"I was fortunate to spend time with Joe during the first season of Kitchen Nightmares. Joe was a brilliant chef, and our thoughts go out to his family, friends and staff."
Very nice words from Ramsay.
We send all our best thoughts and wishes to Cerniglia's family.
