When Jansen Panettiere’s pals came for the business meeting he had booked, they were surprised to find him missing.

Following further investigation, one of his friends went to his house and discovered him sitting erect in a chair, unresponsive. Calling 911 and starting CPR immediately in a frantic attempt to resuscitate him proved futile.

The untimely death of this 28-year-old actor has shocked everyone who knew and loved him. His reason for death is still unknown. Skip, Jansen’s father, had spoken with him the night before his unexpected death, noting that he seemed ok then.

According to unfortunate news, Jansen Panettiere, Hayden Panettiere’s younger brother passed away. The exact cause of death has yet to be confirmed. Police recovered Jansen’s body at a New York property, but no evidence of foul play was found.

When first responders arrived at the New York house on Sunday evening around 5:30 p.m., it is unknown if they attempted any lifesaving efforts or if Jansen had passed already before their arrival.

Both siblings were involved in various projects during their early years, including Tiger Cruise and Racing Stripes. Jansen continued his participation in the entertainment industry by working as an actor.

Jansen revealed his close relationship with his sister Hayden in an Instagram post a few weeks ago. Hayden was shown cutting her brother’s hair in black and white.

Jansen said, “Not the first time she tried to give me a haircut,” emphasizing their sibling-like closeness. Hayden seemed to enjoy the post because she liked it.

Hayden has been open about her drug difficulties and her position as a mother to her daughter, who lives with her ex-husband. She has become increasingly available about these issues in recent years, aiming to help others understand and, perhaps, heal from similar situations.

Hayden Panettiere decided to relinquish custody of her daughter Kaya to focus on her health and well-being in 2018.

The Heroes actress said she was dealing with an alcohol and drug addiction. Still, she finally believed this sacrifice was necessary for Kaya’s safety and happiness.

Despite the challenging circumstances, Panettiere is determined to prioritize her daughter and ensure she receives the attention and protection she deserves. It is a terrible reminder of how even the most loving of families may be affected by substance usage.
