Following the statement, Jaclyn shared a touching tribute to Jon on Friday.
“All I ever wanted was for you to find your happiness and be free from your struggles. My heart is broken to know you are gone but my mind knows you are finally free,” wrote Jaclyn on Instagram. “And I know you’re up there playing drums right now, making everyone laugh. I’ll take our memories and our jokes with me for the rest of my life.”
Jaclyn and Jon wed in August 2009 before filing for divorce in May 2018. The former couple often starred side-by-side on Jaclyn’s YouTube page.
Jon struggled with substance abuse during their relationship and spoke to Billboard in January 2019 about how it affected them.
“During our third year of marriage, I got to a point where I was having meltdowns because I was taking on so much,” Jon told Billboard. “I started getting hives. Then it became apparent that something was wrong.”
Jon eventually quit using drugs but started again when Jaclyn wanted to end their relationship.
“We had been married for nine years. For some reason, I thought how amazing it would be to enjoy Christmas with her while being sober. She would often say, ‘You don’t love me because you never want to do anything. things with me. .’ But that was because I kept having to hide [my addiction] from her all the time,” Jon continued.
He continued, “So coming home to see all my stuff gone and not knowing who she is with, I was just devastated. Within two months I was back on drugs.”
Jaclyn is currently engaged to Youtube star Jordan Farnum after dating for over four years.
