The announcement was made on Twitter by his fiancee Holly Payne yesterday.

 

In her post, Payne details their decision to remove life support measures, “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.”

Payne has provided a link to the family’s official medical expenses fundraiser. As of now, over $130,000 of the $150,000 goal has been met.

Schnepp was the director of Metalocalypse from 2006-2012. In 2015, he made his feature directorial debut with The Death of “Superman Lives”: What Happened?, a behind-the-scenes exploration of Tim Burton’s cancelled Superman Lives film.

He was a regular on Collider Movie Talk and Collider Nightmares, as well as the host of Collider Heroes each week with Collider entertainment. The Collider official statement describes Schnepp as a genuine hero and includes a statement from the CEO, Marc Fernandez, describing him as not “allow(ing) all the barriers that life creates to deter him from his goals and his passions”. In addition, the Collider YouTube channel hosted a live stream memorial.

Friends, fans, and colleagues took to social media to express their condolences, including Henry Cavill, who wished Schnepp “a very peaceful rest” on Instagram.

 

Schnepp is survived by his fiancee Holly Payne, sister Deborah, and his parents, Miriam and David Schnepp. The family requests privacy during this time.
