Gonzales was 39.
To his friends, Gonzales will always be DJ Shabbytiger, a fixture on the underground scene and an avid supporter of bands and experimental artists. His tastes ran toward post-punk, alternative, shoegaze, emo and electronic music.
“Jason epitomized San Antonio. He wasn't a hipster, he was just hip,” said Brian Parrish, radio host of “The Casbah” on KSYM, the San Antonio College radio station where Gonzales worked in the mid-1990s.
“He loved this town. I just can't imagine not seeing him around anymore. Everyone loved him.”
