Schnepp’s wife, Holly Payne, confirmed her husband’s death Friday on Twitter with a statement and a screenshot of a fundraiser page that had been collecting donations for Schnepp’s recovery and medical expenses.
“It is with a broken heart that the Schnepp family and I must announce the passing of our beloved Jon Schnepp, who died peacefully on July 19, 2018,” the statement reads. “Jon ultimately succumbed to the effects of a massive stroke.”
