I was fortunate to have met Bobby and his brother in Cape Cod, MA at the New Seabury golf course. My uncle plays golf with them. Several years later I bumped to them in Santa Monica riding on the board walk . Small World. My condolences to the Farrelly family
NosyAss is reporting that paramedics received a call late that evening about a “unresponsive young male … possible overdose.” Farrelly was rushed from his Orange County, CA apartment to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. The coroner has said no foul play was involved.
His family released a statement saying, “It is with profound sorrow that we accept the passing of our beloved Jesse following his struggle with addiction. We fully trust that he is now in the hands of our Lord.”
“We are immeasurably grateful for the abundance of happiness and laughter he brought into our lives, and we will rejoice eternally for all the moments we got to breathe in his wondrous spirit. The family thanks you for your well wishes and kindly asks that you respect our privacy during this difficult time,” the statement says.
