As we reported last night here on eWn, ECW Legend Jerome “New Jack” Young passed away on Friday after suffering a heart attack at his home in North Carolina, New Jack was 58 years old at the time of his passing. New Jack’s wife, Jennifer Young, posted the following statement on her Facebook account. She said,
“For all the outpouring of love from family, friends, and fans- I’m totally blown away. Jerome was not only my husband, he was my best friend and I’m completely gutted. He loved a lot of you very much, and you’ll never know how much I appreciate the love. I can’t really respond too much right now because I’m completely broken. I’m trying to help kids through this but I don’t even know what I’m doing. But for those of yall ordering books today and seriously asking if they’re autographed, please request a refund and as my daughter so eloquently put it, go stick your face in a lawnmower.”
Also, a GoFundMe account has been set up to help the family pay for funeral expenses. You can donate at this link.
