Square Inc. Co-founder Tristan O & # 39; Tierney Door at 35



(Bloomberg) – Square Inc., co-founder of Tristan O & # 39; Tierney died February 23, his mother, Pamela Tierney, said on Saturday. He was 35 years old.

"I have no official diagnosis," she said on the phone and added that it was probably related to his addiction. A doctor called her to say that Tristan had kidney failure and was during cardiac arrest, she said.

A former engineer at Yahoo and Apple Inc., O & # 39; Tierney was hired to develop Squares original mobile payment application in 2009 and stuck to 2013 when he left the San Francisco firm founded by Twitter Inc.'s CEO Jack Dorsey.

Based in Los Angeles, O & # 39; Tierney had previously been Voteraide's mobile director, a social network known as "LinkedIn for Politics," and a freelance photographer, according to his LinkedIn page. His site showed his pictures of cities, people and landscapes, and he called his camera "my singular creative outlet."

Tierney opened up to his battles in a 2017 tweet. Last year, he compared some of his failures in dealing with addiction, which he did not mention, to the success he had on Square. The Tweet was associated with an Instagram post that has since been deleted.

Square did not respond immediately to a sent request for a statement on Saturday.

In addition, his parents, Tierney, are survived by their three-year-old daughter, according to a death sentence on the funeral home site. A memory will be held on Sunday at Brookside Funeral Home in Houston
