Deadliest Catch star Justin Tennison has passed away. He was 33.

According to reports, police found the body of the reality star and crew member of the F/V Time Bandit in a hotel room in Homer, Alaska on Tuesday.

His cause of death is unknown at this time.

During the search of Justin's room, authorities reportedly found a small amount of marijuana and alcohol. Tennison served as an engineer and deckhand on the boat, captained by Andy Hillstrand on the hit Discovery series.

An autopsy is expected later Wednesday.

Last February, Deadliest Catch captain Phil Harris passed away at the age of 53 after suffering a massive stroke the month before; Harris' touching final moments were captured on camera. May he and Justin both rest in peace.


In the finale episode Justin was talking about how great it is to get back to your family and children. I've just seen the episode some 7 months after the event but it is going to be a great loss. Hope you got to see your children . God bless my friend


Rest in Peace, Justin. You will be truly missed. May Our Lord be with his family to comfort and strengthen them. My thoughts and prayers are for you.


Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Justin Tennison. God bless them. May he rest in the arms of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.


I've never missed an episode & have never seen or heard of this man. Wasn't a part of the show. Sad to hear none the less.
