He moved to Southeast Missouri State University in August 1998 as a web developer, but Lee was on the move again two years later.

He dabbled in his own projects, consulting for Fivesight Technologies full-time and Plateau part-time, before working another year and two months at AT&T as a technical architect.

He then moved to Square as Chief Technological Officer (CTO) for 4 and a half years between January 2010 and May 2014. It was at Square that he spearheaded the development of Cash App, formerly known as Square Cash.

He then moved into Angel investing and advising. His last position before he passed was as chief product officer of MobileCoin.

Bob Lee Cash App

Cash App (formerly Square Cash) is a mobile payment service available in the United States and the United Kingdom that allows users to transfer money to one another (for a 1.5% fee for immediate transfer) using a mobile phone app.

The Cash App was launched when the late Bob Lee was Chief Technological Officer (CTO) at Square.

In September 2021, the service reported 70 million annual transacting users and US$1.8 billion in gross profit.

Cash App was launched by Block, Inc. (formerly Square, Inc. at its launch) in October 15, 2013 under the name “Square Cash”. In March 2015, Square introduced Square Cash for businesses. This allowed individuals, organizations, and business owners to create a unique username to send and receive money, known as a $cashtag.

Since then, the $cashtag has become the most popular method for users to transfer money.

In January 2018, Cash App added support for bitcoin trading.

In October 2019, Cash App added support for stock trading to users in the United States.

In November 2020, Square announced it was acquiring Credit Karma Tax, a free do-it-yourself tax-filing service, for $50 million and would make it a part of its Cash App unit.

On November 3, 2021, Square opened Cash App to teenagers between 13 and 17. The app previously required its users to be at least 18 years old. Younger teens will need a parent or guardian to authorize their account and will not have access to cryptocurrency or stock trading until they turn 18.

Services include banking, peer-to-peer money transfer, cryptocurrency and investing.

Cash App is free to download on the Google Play Store, Apple App Store, and other mobile store platforms. Because the app is initially free, it incentivizes more users to create an account and use its services.

If users want additional services other than a standard money transfer, Cash App charges small percentage fees and initial fixed costs to generate revenue.

Cash App’s primary revenue stream comes from users withdrawing funds from the app to their linked bank accounts. Cash App provides two options to transfer money into a third party bank account: wait three to five business days, or instantly withdraw with a 1.5% fee.

The San Francisco Police Department said in a press release that officers responded to a report of a stabbing on Main Street at 2:35 a.m. Tuesday and found a 43-year-old man (Lee) suffering from apparent stab wounds.

He later died at a hospital.

San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins tweeted that no arrests have been made.

She also said, “I want to extend my sincerest condolences to Mr. Lee’s family members & loved ones for his loss. We do not tolerate these horrific acts of violence in San Francisco.”

Following news of his death, TMZ reported that a video has emerged showing the last moments of Bob Lee’s life.

Surveillance footage, reviewed by The San Francisco Standard, showed Lee tending to his injuries with one hand while holding his mobile phone with the other hand as he staggered down a desolate city street early Tuesday morning. A trail of blood was left in his wake.

The video also depicted Lee approaching a Toyota Camry with its hazard lights on and raising his shirt to reveal a stab wound to the driver. As Lee asked for help, the motorist sped away.

Moments later, Lee fell to the ground, but he got back up and walked further down the road before collapsing again.

Using his cell phone, Lee called 911 and screamed, “Help! Someone stabbed me!” By the time San Francisco police arrived, Lee was already unconscious and later died at a local hospital.

Police say Lee was stabbed twice in the chest by an unknown assailant, who fled the scene. A motive has not been disclosed.

Joshua Goldbard, the CEO of MobileCoin sent the following statement to ABC7 News: “Our dear friend and colleague, Bob Lee passed away yesterday at the age of 43, survived by a loving family and collection of close friends and collaborators.

Bob was a dynamo, a force of nature. Bob was the genuine article. He was made for the world that is being born right now, he was a child of dreams, and whatever he imagined, no matter how crazy, he made real.

Bob was made for the new world, he was the quintessential creator, leader, and consummate hacker. From large contributions to Android at google, to being the first CTO of Square, in that time creating CashApp, and working with us here at Mobilecoin, Bob surely had an impact that will last far beyond his short time on earth. This may sound impressive, but Bob’s real resume is the hearts and minds he touched in his time on earth. Bob’s legacy is the feeling that you can make a difference if you try, and of course his amazing children.

Bob first came to MobileCoin as an early-stage investor and advisor because he believed in the vision of privacy in commerce. He then came on as our Chief Product Officer and helped launch our Moby app, delivering to the work a best-in-class, non-custodial wallet to support the goal of private payments for all. Crypto never saw anything like this before – Moby broke ground and continues to do so.

Bob believed in the dignity of privacy. He wanted a world where you and I could transact free from the prying eyes of predatory corporations and criminals. We are grateful for and humbled by all he has done for us and to grow MobileCoin’s vision.

Steve Jobs said that “Real Artists ship” Bob was a real artist who shipped. Again and again and again. And we will keep on shipping, channeling Bob’s enthusiasm and spirit.

Here’s to the crazy ones. We will miss you Bob. We love you.

For now, MobileCoin will mourn. We turn our attention to honoring Bob’s legacy by holding his loved ones close.”

Nima Momeni Bob Lee

On the morning of Thursday, April 13th 2023, San Francisco Police arrested one Nima Momeni of Emeryville as the prime suspect in the murder of Bob Lee.

In a press conference, Police Chief Bill Scott said Momeni and Lee were familiar with one another and the attack was not random.

“We can confirm Mr. Lee and Mr. Momeni knew each other,” Scott said.

Police stormed Momeni’s apartment in Emeryville, a 10-minute drive across the Bay Bridge from San Francisco April 13th, a week after Bobe Lee’s April 4 murder.. The arrest took place around 5 a.m. A warrant to search his home and take him into custody was served.

According to TMZ, Momeni and Lee had a bust-up in Momeni’s car whilst driving in San Francisco that precipitated the stabbing.

The suspect has previously been arrested for illegal possession of a knife.

“I was completely taken aback,” a neighbour said about the news of Mr Momeni’s arrest. “It didn’t seem in character with what he’s accused of doing, at least in my interactions with him.”

Nima Momeni was charged with murder with court documents showing the two had their infamous dust-up over Nima’s sister, Khazar, who was married.

Who is Nima Momeni?

Nima Momeni is charged with murdering Bob Lee

Nima Momeni is a tech executive charged with murdering the Cash App founder Bob Lee.

He is the owner of Expand IT, which claims to be a “one-stop technology and security provider” for enterprise software companies.

His educational background is a bit murky. Whilst claiming on LinkedIn to be a graduate of the University of California, Berkley, a spokesperson for the University apparently confirmed to TMZ that is an outright lie.

He also claims to have attended Laney College and Vista College.

Momeni began his IT career in 2005, initially as a network engineer at Marfic Technologies, and subsequently at Coast Range Technologies.

He worked as a consultant for a number of years before launching Expand IT in 2010. He owns an apartment at 4053 Harlan St in Emeryville that he purchased for $525,000 in 2020.

Nima had one identified sister, Khazar, who reportedly was the reason he took issue with Bob Lee and stabbed him!

He is reportedly a practitioner of Zoroastrianism – part of an ancient monotheistic religion with its roots in Iran.

Mr Momeni apparently came to the US from Iran with his mother sometime after the Iranian revolution in 1979.

Momeni has had several brushes with the law previously.

In 2008, he pleaded no contest to a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol in Santa Clara county. He was sentenced to six days jail time. He also pleaded no contest to driving while unlicensed in a 2013 case in the same county.

In 2011, Momeni was also charged in Alameda County for allegedly selling a switchblade and driving with a suspended license and was fined and sentenced to 10 days in jail.  

38 years of age, Nima Momeni fatally stabbed Bob Lee on April 4th 2023 after the two reportedly had an argument in the former’s car. Police revealed the pair knew each other after Momeni’s arrest.

According to charging docs, Momeni had a 5 1/4″ butterfly knife in the centre console of his car, the same vehicle he was driving at the time of the crime. He told cops it belonged to him.

Reports reveal Nima was unhappy that his sister Khazar, who was married to prominent San Francisco surgeon Dino Elyassnia, may have been having an affair with Bob Lee.

Khazar Momeni, also known as Khazar Elyassnia, is the sister of Nima Momeni, San Francisco tech executive accused of killing Bob Lee of Cash App fame.

Bob Lee met Khazar on the day of his death and later met her brother, who ‘grilled’ him about his sister.

He probably was not happy about the result of his grilling because he then drove Bob out to a dark alley and stabbed him.

Khazar Momeni was married, her husband was Dino Elyassnia, a prominent surgeon in San Francisco with a practice on Sutter Street. She is circa 37 years old.

Khazar Elyassnia is on Instagram at elyassnia – her husband’s account. Her own account cannot be found.
