Musician and actor Jon Steuer – also known in the punk scene as Jonny P. Jewels – has died, RadarOnline.com has unfortunately learned. The Portland-based star was 33 years old at the time of his passing on January 1. The cause of his death has not yet been confirmed.

Born in California, Steuer left the Hollywood spotlight at age twelve, and moved to Portland to pursue music. He later opened his own local restaurant.

"I had never really gotten into acting for the stardom or the fame or the attention. I did it because I liked acting. That show brought a lot of press and attention around me and my personal life. I was right on the cusp of puberty, going through that awkward stage. To be put under a microscope like that is kind of a bizarre addition to your life that obviously not a lot of other people can relate to," he told The AV Club in 2015.

Rest in peace, Jon Steuer.
