Very sad news today out of Hollywood:
Jordan Feldstein, the brother of movie star Jonah Hill and veteran manager of beloved music group Maroon 5, died on Friday of what reports have confirmed to be a heart attack.
He was 40 years old.
Feldstein worked as a talent manager who had been at the center of Maroon 5's success ever since the Adam Levine-fronted band debuted 15 years ago.
He is survived by two children.
“Unfortunately, last night Jordan called 911 for shortness of breath," said his family via a statement that adds:
"When paramedics arrived it was determined he went into full cardiac arrest and passed away shortly thereafter."
Feldstein started his by working for ICM and Bill Leopold Management.
He later became the founder and CEO of Career Artist Management, a company whose client list includes: Maroon 5, Adam Levine, Iggy Azalea, Robin Thicke and Elle King.
A representative for the Los Angeles Coroner’s office told People Magazine that police are investigating Jordan’s death as a possible accident.
This is because the same office is conducting tests to determine if the music executive’s death was related to ingesting some kind of substance or substances.
“His family asks for privacy during this difficult and unexpected time,” the statement from the family continued.
“In lieu of food and flowers, the family will announce a charity in the coming weeks where memorial donations can be made in Jordan’s name."
Feldstein, whose sister is an actress, was previously married to Francesca Eastwood, the daughter of Clint Eastwood.
The couple secretly tied the knot at a Las Vegas wedding chapel on November 17, 2013... only for Eastwood to file for an annulment just a week later.
Jordan Feldstein was a childhood friend of Adam Levine's and helped negotiate his deal to serve as a coach on The Voice.
Neither Hill nor Levine has yet commented publicly on Feldstein's passing.
Live Nation, however, has released the following statement:
We are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Jordan Feldstein and extend our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. Jordan was a gifted manager whose artists benefited greatly from his guidance and talents.
He will be missed by his Live Nation and Roc Nation family.
We send our condolences to his loved ones.
May Jordan Feldstein rest in peace.
