A California elementary school principal is dead after jumping from a parking structure at Disneyland over the weekend.

Anaheim Police said a call about a man jumping from a Disneyland parking structure came in around 9 p.m. Saturday, according to FOX 11. On Sunday, the Orange County coroner identified the man as Christopher Christensen. His death was said to be a suicide .

Christensen, 51, was the principal at William T. Newland Elementary School in Huntington Beach, California. He had also spent 22 years in the nearby Fountain Valley School District, working as the principal of three other schools.

On Saturday, Christensen posted a lengthy message on Facebook.

“I hate when people leave this Earth with so many unanswered questions,” Christensen wrote. “So, I hope this provides some insight and perspective.”

Christensen explained how he and his wife had gotten into a “heated argument” that led to him being arrested after his wife called the police. He denied physically hurting his wife or his stepdaughters and suggested his wife “truly regrets making that call, because the events of that night have completely unraveled both of our lives.”

“I am on the brink of losing my job, as I am out on administrative leave until my case is ‘resolved.’ However, the legal system is extremely flawed (especially against men/fathers) and it’s sickening how quickly and easily an innocent man can be thrown in jail based on zero evidence or proof!” Christensen wrote. “So, here I am … writing my final FB post to all of you. I need you all to know that a gentle, kind, loving and sincerely good man has been destroyed by one unfortunate night. It really is unfortunate!”

Christensen faced charges of child endangerment and battery and was due in court Monday for a pretrial hearing. He had pleaded not guilty to both charges, according to the Los Angeles Daily News.

“Please remember me for all the good I brought to the world of education,” Christensen wrote.

Christensen is survived by his wife, three children, and two stepchildren.

Wow, the man is so right. The American injustice system is so biased, corrupt and flawed, judges and prosecutors, you know who you are and here's to karma coming for you. There are so many similar suicides that we never hear about, it's a travesty. RIP and to the allegedly lying wife, here's to karma coming for you and all the others bearing false testimony.

That night was what set it all of this into motion and he knew his life was over. His wife will have to live with that for the rest of her life and his two step daughter’s. I’m glad I don’t have to live with conscience l!

how sad that this man felt that there was no other way to fix his problems and decided to end his life. he may have believed that this would resolve everything, but in actuality it only makes it harder for the loved ones that he left behind. imagine the guilt that his wife must feel after this. Unbearable....
