View this post on Instagram
Jon-Erik Hexum (/ˈhɛksəm/; November 5, 1957 – October 18, 1984). Was an American actor, known for his lead roles in the TV series Voyagers! and Cover Up, and his supporting role as Pat Trammell in the biopic The Bear. He died as a result of an accidental self-inflicted blank cartridge gunshot to the head on the set of Cover Up. His big break came when a housecleaning job led to an introduction to agent Bob Lemond. His career took off quickly and he chose his roles carefully. His first big acting role was in "Voyagers". He played time traveler, Phineas Bogg. He next appeared as a guest star on "Hotel" in the role of Prince Charming. "The Making of a Male Model" was a television movie in which he played cowboy turned model, Tyler Burnett. This role launched him as a sex symbol. "The Bear" was his first feature role. He played terminally ill football player Pat Trammell. "Cover Up" was his second and what was to be last television series. He played Mac Harper, an ex-green beret turned model/undercover agent. It was during filming of one of the episodes that he had his fatal accident. It had been a long day of filming with one delay after another. The gun to be used in the next scene was left out loaded with blanks. Apparently believing the gun to be unloaded, he discharged it against his right temple. The force drove a piece of his skull into his brain. Doctors spent hours in surgery trying to save him to no avail. He was removed from life support and days later his organs were donated by his family. Later his mother was awarded an undisclosed wrongful death settlement from 20th Century Fox Television and Glenn Larson Productions. His ashes were scattered over Malibu along the shore he loved.
