Millionaire Matchmaker star Trevor Jones dead at 34 from rare disease – New York Post

Trevor Jones, a former contestant on Bravo’s “Millionaire Matchmaker,” has died at 34.

The reality star’s family confirmed online that he passed away Oct. 9 from an “event” related to his Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a tissue-weakening disorder that can cause major blood vessels to spontaneously rupture.

Jones is most famous for his turn on Season 8 of the dating show “Millionaire Matchmaker” where he ended up dating “The Hills” star Stephanie Pratt. Ultimately, he went on to marry someone else.

“We’re devastated over here. He was the most gorgeous, sweetest, normalest, nicest person,” former “Matchmaker” host Patti Stanger told The Post. “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.”

Stanger, 60, added, “I remember telling Stephanie [Pratt], ‘You’re never going to do better than this.’”

Along with his TV stints, Jones is the co-founder of Flex Watches, a timepiece company with interchangeable faces on watches with each design supporting a charitable cause.

The firm has had partnerships with rappers Tyga and Xzibit and was even featured on CNBC’s “The Profit,” where businessman Marcus Lemonis offers capital investment to businesses in exchange for a stake in their company. The host ended up offering $400,000 for a 40% stake in the firm, which Jones and his partner accepted.

Jones’ family noted how “generous” and kind he was in a statement on GoFundMe.

“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,” they wrote. “Trevor had a gift where he could make anyone smile, laugh, or feel comfortable with just a look or a few words.”

As of Tuesday, the fund-raiser had garnered over $118,000, which will go toward the star’s widow, Cherrie Jones, to help support their 6-month-old daughter, Finley.

Stanger told The Post “he went broke in the process” of doing IVF with his wife.
