Hill took to her Instagram stories to say, “I was asked by Jons family to post this next slide”, before sharing a photo of Jon with the caption, “It is with profound remorse and sorrow that we must report that our beloved Andrew Johnathan Hill passed away on August 10, 2022”.

Fans also left messages with one saying, “He was a gem of a guy! So so sad. His music was super inspiring. I hope he’s rocking out with the legends, prayers to you and his family”.
“I’m so sorry. I can’t imagine what his family and you are going through right now”, added another follower.
Jon was known for his rock music and for appearing in many of Jaclyn’s YouTube videos. The pair tied the knot in August 2009 and after nine years of marriage, they divorced in 2018. After they split up, Jaclyn decided to keep Jon’s last name.
Our condolences go out to Jon’s friends and family. Our thoughts are with them at this difficult time.
