Jordan Feldstein, longtime manager of Maroon 5 and brother of actor Jonah Hill, died Friday at age 40. A statement from Feldstein’s family said he had shortness of breath and called 911. By the time emergency crews arrived he had gone into cardiac arrest and passed away shortly after.
“His family asks for privacy during this difficult and unexpected time,” the statement said. “In lieu of food and flowers, the family will announce a charity in the coming weeks where memorial donations can be made in Jordan’s name.”
Feldstein, founder and chief executive of Career Artist Management, had managed Maroon 5 since its inception 15 years ago. Under his direction, Maroon 5 received three Grammy Awards and sold 20 million albums worldwide. Other clients of Feldstein’s company include The B-52s, Elle King and Rick Springfield. He also negotiated Maroon 5’s Adam Levine’s coach role on NBC’s The Voice.
Feldstein, who was briefly married to Clint Eastwood’s daughter, Francesca, in 2013 (the marriage was annulled), is survived by two children.
