When the paramedics arrived, Feldstein collapsed into full cardiac arrest and died not long after. During this challenging time, Jordan’s family asked for privacy.
Reportedly, a foundation will be set up in the upcoming weeks in Jordan’s name. Jordan worked as the founder and CEO of the company titled, Career Artist Management, and also was a long-time friend of Adam Levine.
Jordan made a name for himself as a successful manager who would fight for his client’s art at no matter the cost. Clients frequently claimed he would often defend his clients as if their art was his own.
Some of his other associates included Miguel, Big Boi, Rick Springfield, The B-52’s, Chromeo, as well as Elle King. As for the remainder of his relatives, Jordan left behind two children, his two parents, Sharon Lyn, Richard Feldstein, his sister, Beanie Feldstein, and of course, brother Jonah Hill.
