No one is saying how he died so that means to me there is a story behind his death and it must not be good.

I think us followers of this show deserve to get told what happened to john. We understand the job they do are dangerous . So why can't we be told. ( I'm thinking they went on a call and one got him) and if that's true that is a shame. He was a good guy. So john RIP.

Holiday Park will only verify that his death did not occur on their property. All other parties have declined comment. Like all true Gator Boys fans, I am shocked and saddened by the news and would appreciate knowing what happened. However, I think we should respect the privacy of J-Marts family and the Gator Boys crew and allow them to grieve their loved one in peace. If they want to share the details in their own time, so be it. Godspeed, J-mart! I hope there are Cheetos in Heaven!

are you people freaking idiots ... just because you watch the show you believe that gives you some right into his personal life and cause of death. Maybe no one is saying anything out of respect for John and his family. Hope he has a bag of Cheetos wherever he is.

He died from a truck accident but I really don't think it should matter. Even if you are so called "true fans", them not wanting to share what happened is what they're trying to do and "true fans" should have enough respect to just leave it be.

Even tho' I am curious as to why a young man would die at such a young age, it is none of our business why or how he died. I know his family and friends are going through enough misery losing such a funny and, I'm certain, loved friend and they don't need our curious nosiness interfering. God bless J-Mart's Gator Boys' crew and his family. Such a loss - he always appeared to me to be looking for approval and acceptance....my heart always went out to him. God speed J-Mart.

I never claimed I had the "right" to know what happened and apologize if my wording gave such an impression. I realize I don't know these people personally. As I said, this is a private time for those that truly did know and love him. Grief is universal. We all understand loss. I was just expressing sympathy for what is obviously a huge loss. Again, my apologies if I offended anyone...

You have no reason to apologize ... you said nothing wrong ... my comment was directed towards the idiotic comments above your post.
