Trevor Jones, a former contestant on Bravo’s “Millionaire Matchmaker,” has died at age 34.
The reality star’s family confirmed on a GoFundMe page that he passed away on October 9 from an “event” related to his Vascular Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, a tissue-weakening disorder that can cause major blood vessels to spontaneously rupture.
Jones is most famous for his turn on season 8 of the dating show “Millionaire Matchmaker” where he ended up dating “The Hills” star Stephanie Pratt. Ultimately, he went on to marry someone else, the Sun reported.
Along with his TV stints, Jones is the co-founder of Flex Watches, a timepiece company with interchangeable faces on watches with each design supporting a charitable cause.
The firm has had partnerships with rappers Tyga and Xzibit and was even featured on CNBC’s “The Profit,” where businessman Marcus Lemonis offers capital investment to businesses in exchange for a stake in their company. The host ended up offering $400,000 for a 40% stake in the firm, which Jones and his partner accepted.
Jones’ family noted how “generous” and kind he was in a statement on GoFundMe.
“Trevor was the type of person that left a footprint in the world without even trying. He was sincere, generous, funny, and always tried to give back,” they wrote. “Trevor had a gift where he could make anyone smile, laugh, or feel comfortable with just a look or a few words.”
As of Tuesday afternoon, the fundraiser had garnered over $118,000, which will go towards the star’s widow, Cherrie Jones, to help support their six-month-old daughter, Finley.
