“Revive me Jett”, the voice that captivated us for more than two years in the form of a legendary meme, suddenly died away. We are heartbroken to share this tragic news, but we must continue to do our best to keep our readers informed of all developments. And this time we have this awful news to report. Not only this meme has brought a smile to the faces of millions of Valorant fans around the world, but it’s also nearly as old as the game itself. Riot commemorated the incident with a spray that was previously offered as a Battle Pass reward.
The Valorant audience has created dozens of memes on various parts of the game, but the creator of the now-iconic “revived me Jett” meme has regrettably passed away. ‘Revive me, Jett,’ one of the game’s most popular memes, arose from a video in which a player urged the Duelist to resurrect them despite the character’s lack of healing abilities. The Valorant community has been flooded with condolences after Arcilla’s death.
“Thank you anak for the 21 years of lovely memories,” Arcilla’s mother wrote on Facebook, confirming the news. You have always been and will continue to be a treasure to us.”
Apart from the fact that he came from the Philippines, little is known about Arcilla’s life. Despite the mystery surrounding him, news of his death was welcomed with regret among Valorant fans and the esports community. On social media, Team Secret, one of the best Valorant teams in the Philippines, expressed its condolences.
We would like to extend our condolences to friends and family of Lance “Finest” Arcilla, who recently passed away.
He made millions of us laugh with his iconic “JETT REVIVE ME” and will forever be a monument of Valorant PH games.
