Cash App co-founder Bob Lee was killed in a stabbing in San Francisco earlier this week, according to multiple news reports Wednesday.

Lee was reportedly attacked early Tuesday morning near the Bay Bridge at about 2:35 a.m. He died later in the day. It was unclear as of Wednesday afternoon why he was on the bridge and whether he was a pedestrian or motorist. 

The 43-year-old Lee was the chief product officer of MobileCoin. He was the former chief technology officer of Square, as well as one of the founders of Cash App.

"Bob was a dynamo, a force of nature," MobileCoin CEO Joshua Goldbar told local TV station KNTV. "Bob believed in the dignity of privacy. He wanted a world where you and I could transact free from the prying eyes of predatory corporations and criminals. We are grateful for and humbled by all he has done for us.”
