Because POTC Wiki doesn't need the page at this time, mainly because we're not 100% certain if this news will remain accurate, this page was deleted from our main pages. But I kept this copy just in case if it remains accurate. So please do not post this information into a newly created page OR attempt to create another page concerning "Jeff Nathanson", because it will be deleted.
Thank you for honoring this request. ;) — J Fan
