Before the advent of the internet if someone wanted to reach out to a relative who had passed away they had to consult a medium or try their luck with a Ouija board. But in the 21st century the dead are just as eager to make contact and they’re reaching out to us. In 2011, Jack Froese died of sudden heart problem, shocking everyone around him, but then his friends and family joined the ranks of people who were contacted by the dead when Jack started sending them emails.

The creepy Jack Froese death emails began showing up months after he died and they all had super personal information in them like inside jokes and references to current private events. What happened to Jack Froese? Was his spirit about to reach out to his friends from beyond the grave? Or was someone just pulling his family’s leg? If he really did reach out one more time does that mean you can get emails from dead people?

In June 2011, 32-year-old Jack Froese passed away suddenly from a heart arrhythmia, something occurs when electrical impulses in the heart don't work properly. This illness can strike with no symptoms and it's likely that Froese didn't even know he had a ticking time bomb in his chest. He left a mother and many friends and family who didn't know how to handle the passing of someone who everyone described as a great guy. 

His friend, Tim Hart, described Froese as "my right hand man." He says that the two were "inseparable" since the age of 17. Five months after Froese died, just as life was getting back to normal, Froese - or someone pretending to be Froese - began sending emails to his friends and family.

All of the messages Froese sent after his death were incredibly strange and very personal, which means the person sending them had to have knowledge of his personal conversations. One message was sent to Froese's buddy Hart and it included an inside joke that the two had about cleaning Hart's attic. 

Hart explained that one night he was just scrolling through his phone when he received a message from Froese. The subject line was "I'm Watching," and it read: "Did you hear me? I'm at your house. Clean your f***ing attic!!!"

Hart said that before Froese died the two had joked about how dirty his attic was, with Froese saying that he was going to clean it. Hart insists that they were the only people who knew about the conversation.

Froese was such a good friend that even after he passed away he was worried about the people who used to be in his life. After his friend Jimmy McGraw broke his ankle he was laid up for a week when he received an email from Frose. Normally this wouldn't be weird, but Froese had passed away months prior. 

The email read: "Hey Jim, How ya doing? I knew you were gonna break your ankle, tried to warn you. Gotta be careful." While it's possible that someone could have sent this from Froese's account, it doesn't make sense why someone would do so. McGraw told The Daily Mail that he likes to think it was Froese. "I look at it as he's gone, but he's still trying to connect with me, trying to tell me to move along, to feel better."

No One Knew His Passwords


One of the obvious possible explanations for this email haunting is that someone possibly logged into Froese's email and began sending messages to his friends and family. Everyone who received a message from their long lost friend claims that no one knew his passwords. If they did they wouldn't have sent the messages. 

If a stranger had hacked into his email, how would they have known Froese had passed away? This story brings up more questions the deeper you go.
