Former Primer 55 Singer Jason “J-Sin” Luttrell Dead at Age 40
Jason “J-Sin” Luttrell, original vocalist for the nu-metal band Primer 55, has passed away. He was only forty years old.
The singer previously revealed that he was battling Hepatitis C. Writing on a crowdfunding page launched to help cover his medical bills, Luttrell wrote:
“I was diagnosed with Hepatitis C when I was 28 years old. I contracted this disease from a blood transfusion that I received when I was 3 years old after being hit by a car. I have been diligently trying to get disability because after 10 years of fighting this disease I am now in desperate need of a liver transplant.”
Primer 55 have released the following statement regarding Luttrell’s death:
“As most of you are already aware original vocalist Jason -Jsin- Luttrell pasted away last night. We had many great years of friendship and many good times both on the road and off. May god now have his soul to hold. Prayers to his family and friends. #FFL“
Adds the band’s former guitarist, Bobby Burns:
“At 831 pm central time yesterday I lost a person that was once my very best friend in the world. Riding around Memphis TN on skate boards in the middle of the night and being stupid. Writing songs. Talking about dreams. Our dream came true and we signed a record deal that would forever change our lives. It was a roller coaster that turned best friends into business partners and boredom that turned business partners into wreck less humans that made lots of bad choices. We had ALOT of fun at times but also a lot of drama. I’m sad we never got the chance to reconnect on any level. My prayers are with your family. Rest easy Jason Luttrell.”
MetalSucks would like to offer its sincerest condolences to Luttrell’s loved ones during the painful time.
