Jon Hill’s death remains shrouded in mystery. It’s been nearly a week since he died, but the true cause of death has yet to be determined. What is clear is his condition when he was discovered lifeless.
In an email to Page Six, a representative from the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner confirmed that the renowned drummer was declared dead on a sidewalk.
The cause of his death has been postponed pending further investigation. According to the representative, the autopsy results will take “months.”
According to his court file, Jon’s body was returned to his family. Jaclyn Hill, a YouTube celebrity who rose to fame by posting makeup tutorials on the internet, revealed this week that her ex-husband died on August 10, 2022. He was 33 years old.
Jaclyn wrote an emotional ode to Jon a few days later, describing him as “the kindest and most sensitive person” she had ever met.
“You looked people in the eyes & you truly listened & cared about what they had to say,” she said on social media, adding, “You had so much talent you didn’t know what to do with it.” You turned your pain into art and touched so many people with your music’s honesty.”
The 32-year-old Jaclyn Hill Cosmetics founder and Jon married in 2009, but announced their divorce in 2018 because they did not get along as husband and wife. Jon later admitted to Billboard in 2019 that their divorce was caused by his drug addiction.
“During our third year of marriage, it got to a point where I was having seizures because I was on so much stuff,” he told the outlet at the time. “I started breaking out in hives. So it became noticeable that something was wrong.” Jon disclosed that he eventually sobered up, but Jaclyn “decided she no longer wanted to remain” with him.
Jordan Torrey, better known as Jordan Farnum, is her current fiance.
