The Heartbreaking Death Of Millionaire Matchmaker Contestant Trevor Jones

Trevor Jones, a former contestant on Bravo's "Millionaire Matchmaker," has died at the age of 34, the New York Post reports. According to his friend and business partner Travis Lubinsky, per a GoFundMe page, Jones died on October 9 "from a sudden Vascular Ehlers Danlos Syndrome event." Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, or EDS, affects the body's connective tissue, typically in the skin, joints, and blood vessels. While the majority of symptoms are non-life threatening, a more severe form of EDS, called Vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, can weaken the aorta and cause blood vessels and some organs to rupture, which could lead to death, per the Mayo Clinic.

People who knew and loved Jones were understandably shaken by the news of his death. "We're devastated over here," said "Millionaire Matchmaker" host Patti Stranger (via New York Post). "He was the most gorgeous, sweetest, normalest, nicest person. I remember saying to him, 'Can I clone you?' We're all in shock. Only the good die young. He was one of the nicest guys."

Jones was known for being charitable

Trevor Jones was perhaps best known for his time on Season 8 of "Millionaire Matchmaker," in which he was paired up with "The Hills" star Stephanie Pratt. While that relationship did not work out, Jones ultimately met his perfect match, Cherrie, whom he married in April 2018. The two had their first child, daughter Finley, in March 2021 (via Deadline).

In addition to his time on reality TV, Jones also co-founded Flex Watches with his childhood friend Travis Lubinsky. According to the website, the company was formed with "the adamant belief that you can look good and do good at the same time." In keeping with that spirit, Flex Watches has a "Charity Collection" line, where a portion of each watch sold goes to a different charity. Flex Watches has also contributed to planting more than 40,000 trees.

According to the GoFundMe page made in Jones' honor, with the goal of raising money for Cherrie and Finley, "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."
