This year started really bad. Jonny, the very talented P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. singer and former actor and vegan restaurant owner and above all the nicest guy you can imagine, died yesterday. He has certainly experienced a lot in his 33 years, but he died far too young. We will all miss you, Jonny.
Willamette Week: Portland Musician and Restaurateur Jonny P. Jewels Has Died
“It is with heavy hearts and saddened minds that we announce the passing of our dear friend and singer Jonny Jewels, AKA Jon Paul Steuer. The addition of Jonny to our dysfunctional band family was one of the best choices that we have ever made, and he brought a much needed sense of fun and lightheartedness to everything we did. He was only with us for a little more than a year, but we managed to cram a lifetime of great experiences into his tenure as our singer: dozens shows at home in Portland and across several states, an amazing European tour, and our best full-length release yet.
We’ve lost our singer, but far, far more than that we’ve lost a friend.
Rest in peace, Jonny…we love you.
Jon Paul Steuer March 27, 1984 – January 1, 2018”
