Sharing details of why Jansen suddenly lost his life, the grieving clan confirmed that he died of heart failure. In their words, “Although it is of little comfort, the medical examiner reported that Jansen’s sudden passing was caused by cardiomegaly (enlarged heart) combined with aortic valve complications.”
At the end of the heartbreaking message, they thanked those who have shown them love and support as they try to “navigate through this unimaginable loss.”
The Panettiere’s also asked for privacy “in this time of grief” before declaring: “We love you so much Jansen and you will be in our hearts forever.”
The brother of the “Hősök” Alum was fatally shot by his distraught girlfriend
When Jansen died in his New York apartment, there were no certain deaths, but reported that police confirmed they were called to his home on Feb. 19 at 5:30 p.m.
In addition, authorities have maintained no indication of a crime surrounding the death. This comes as no surprise to fans given his cheerful demeanor and love for art as seen on his Instagram.
Before he left this earth, one of his last entries was a portrait of his friend Catherine Michie, a posthumous tribute to him.
“Jasen, I only met you a year ago,” he wrote, “but you were my best friend and biggest fan. I’ll never forget the first time I saw your face and the first thing you said to me.”
Michie continued with a desperate expression that she had never heard him laugh before apologizing for not being there when he needed her the most.
He then ended with words of love, declaring, “Somebody wake me up and tell me it’s a dream. I love you Bubbles.”
