On Aug. 11, 2022, the makeup vlogger posted on her Instagram Story that the 33-year-old asked her to “post that next slide.” The following Instagram story showed:
“It is with great sadness that we have to announce that our dear friend Andrew Jonathan Hill passed away on August 10, 2022. The sudden tragedy left us all shattered. During this very difficult time, the Hill family is asking for privacy. RV, Family Hill.
The 32-year-old shared her story with a photo of the drummer.
How old was Jaclyn Hill’s ex-husband, Jon Hill, at the time of her death?
Hill was 33 when he died. He was from Houston, Texas. During his career, he was part of many bands and even had his own YouTube channel.
In January 2019, he released his first album, titled “Rebirth”. Thereupon he explained how he wanted to overcome his drug addiction.
In an interview with Billboard in 2019, the drummer said he first used drugs when he was 17. He also said his drug use only got worse in the years that followed, which was one of the reasons he and Jaclyn Hill broke up.
“It really surprised me. Nine years ago we got married. I thought how great it would be to spend Christmas with her and still be clean. She often said, ‘You don’t love me. because you never want to do things with me. But that was because I had to keep hiding my drug use from her. So when I got home, all my stuff was gone, and I didn’t know where she was. I was just heartbroken. I was back on drugs in two months.
The entertainer also said he had seizures and hives from his addiction.
In August 2009, Jon Hill and Jaclyn Hill got married. He was often on the YouTube channel of his now ex-wife, Jaclyn, until May 2018 when Jaclyn said they were breaking up. She said that although they didn’t get along well as husband and wife, they were “still good friends”.
Even though Jaclyn and Jon broke up, she still goes by Jon’s last name at work.
After his battle with drugs, Jon said making music was a creative outlet that helped him stay off drugs and detox.
Jon said this to people who were having similar issues:
“The darker things get, the more purpose you will have when they are over, as long as you want to abstain and help people. When I woke up hungry, I felt more confident than I had ever felt before. I thought, “I can do this.” I earned it after every little mistake I made. You suddenly feel like your life has a new purpose, and that’s wonderful.
It is important to know that it has not been proven that the death of the musician was caused by his history of drug addiction.
