A former soldier who jumped from the eastbound Tacoma Narrows bridge last week and appeared to survive has been identified as Esteban Reza, a 25-year-old New Mexico native.

Trooper Guy Gill said a Washington State Patrol investigator talked to Reza’s mother and brother when they came to Tacoma after he disappeared Dec. 20. The family said they haven’t heard from him since Dec. 3.
The trooper saw Reza swimming in the cold water for about 20 minutes before he disappeared. A search of the water by boat and helicopter found nothing, Gill said.

Esteban Reza sat alone and appeared drunk in a maroon SUV parked in the far right lane of the eastbound Tacoma Narrows bridge.

The SUVís engine was idling, warming the interior. A full moon softened the darkness. Sunrise was 21/2 hours away.

It was 5:24 a.m. on Dec. 20.

In the early morning of Dec. 20, 2010, Esteban Reza threw himself off the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. The 25-year-old Army veteran and New Mexico National Guard Soldier, despondent over the breakup of his marriage and the death of his grandfather, saw no other solution than to take his own life. Last year, 154 active-duty Soldiers - enough to fill an Army company - made the same decision as Reza did that fateful December morning, all of them leaving behind devastated families.
