Filmmaker Jon Schnepp, a key writer and director for Adult Swim’s “Metalocalypse,” has died from complications following a stroke last week. He was 51 and passed on July 19, 2018., according to his fiancée.
“It is with a broken heart the Schnepp family and I must announce the passing of our beloved Jon Schnepp, who died peacefully on July 19, 2018,”fiancée Holly Payne wrote on Twitter. “Jon ultimately succumbed to the effects of a massive stroke. He had a blood clot removed from his left carotid artery, but the bleeding could not be stopped. Irreparable and catastrophic damage was caused to both hemispheres and all brain activity ceased. His sister Deborah and I had to make the difficult decision to take him off of life support. There was no possible way for him to recover.”
The family has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for his medical expenses, with a goal of $150,000. So far, the fund has raised more than $100,000.
