It’s been almost a week since Jansen Panettiere passed away. His life was cut short on February 19 in New York City at the age of 28. At the time of the former child actor’s death, no family members made any comments.
Jansen Panettiere: Cause Of Death
However, upon learning the cause of death. The family released a statement that also reveals the cause of death of Jansen Panettiere. The family revealed that Jansen Panettiere passed away due to cardiomegaly, coupled with aortic valve complications.
Cardiomegaly is the cause of an enlarged heart, which also causes several other factors in the body such as high blood pressure, shortness of breath, swelling of the belly or legs as well as irregular heart rhythm. One of the most common effects is high blood pressure.
The sudden passing of the young actor is now linked to Cardiomegaly. According to medical terms, an enlarged heart is most commonly caused by an underlying heart problem that causes the heart to pump faster and work harder than the average rate.
Cardiomegaly can be simply caused by any of the complications or any condition such as underlying heart condition by birth, damage from a heart attack, high blood pressure or viral infection, and many others.
In the case of Jansen, he seems to be dwelling in depression, as he started to pour his thoughts into painting; which is literally a good way to deal with it. But it is just unfortunate that it directly affected his heart to fail to function.
The family statement reads “Jansen’s heart could be seen in his eyes, and his charm in his brilliant engaging smile: his soul in his masterful and revealing paintings, and the joy of life in his dry wit,” the statement continues, “His Charisma, warmth, compassion for others, and his creative spirit will live forever in our hearts and in the hearts of all whom he encountered. We sincerely appreciate the outpouring of love and support towards our family as we navigate this unthinkable loss, and ask that we be gifted our privacy during this time of mourning. We love you so much Jansen and you will be in our hearts forever.”
It is true that mourning time can be really difficult, especially when the family is ultimately close to their children. Jansen and his sister Hayden Panettiere were reportedly close to each other. They both started their careers at a really young age and share almost similar interests. Therefore, Hayden was someone who could relate to himself. Over the years, the pictures speak for themselves that their sibling bond has grown. It was only a week before Jansen shared an Instagram post of his sister attempting to get him to cut his hair. In the caption, he wrote, “Not the first haircut she’s tried to give me.”
So the loss of Jensen would be literally hard for his sister, and the rest of the family. The other person whom he calls family is his girlfriend Catherine Michie; she was devastated to learn of the demise of his one-year-long best friend.
Reports suggest that she indeed is his painting partner. Upon his death, she immediately expressed and mourned his death, after one of his representatives confirmed his death on February 20.
It is unfortunate to acknowledge that the actor died at such a young age. He started his career as a child actor at the early age of 8. He debuted in his first appearance as Kupchak’s son in the television series. He had several small roles on television as well as appeared as a voice artist until he got his big break in the “The Last Day of Summer” as Luke Malloy.
