Trevor Jones, an entrepreneur who appeared on reality shows like Bravo’s “The Millionaire Matchmaker” and CNBC’s “The Profit”, has died aged 34.
Jones died on October 9 from a condition called Ehlers-Danlos vascular syndrome, which weakens tissue and can cause the blood vessels rupture spontaneously, according to the New York Post.
Although mainstream TV fans remember Jones best for dating “Hills” star Stephanie Pratt in Season 8 of “Millionaire Matchmaker,” her main job was as a co-founder of Flex Watches, a watch company that offers interchangeable faces for watches.
Jones featured the product on “The Profit,” a reality show where entrepreneurs look to investors, and ended up getting $ 400,000 for 40% of Marcus Lemonis’ company equity.
TThe brand then forged partnerships with rappers Tyga and Xzibit, according to the Sun.
Although Jones had a date with Pratt, he married another woman, Cherrie, the mother of his daughter, Finley.
A GoFundMe campaign set up for Jones’ wife and daughter raised more than $ 113,000 as of Tuesday afternoon.
