While fans may not have heard from Jesse in recent years, his sisters Trina and Tamara spoke about his whereabouts in an interview last year and revealed that he was doing well.

When quizzed on why fans don’t see him on social media or performing often, the sisters confirmed that the success of his hit ‘You’ has made life comfortable enough that he doesn’t have to tour or make new music these days if he doesn’t want to. However, he was still very humbled and grateful for his fans. 

At the time of posting, there were no details on the cause of death. RIP Jesse!
