Jordan Feldstein, the founder and CEO of Career Artist Management and older brother to actor Jonah Hill, died of a heart attack at his home Friday night. He was 40.
“Unfortunately, last night Jordan called 911 for shortness of breath, when paramedics arrived it was determined he went into full cardiac arrest and passed away shortly thereafter,” read a statement from the family. The Los Angeles County coroner also confirmed the death.
As the founder of the Los Angeles-based Career Artist Management, Feldstein ran a leading management firm in the entertainment industry. He managed Maroon 5 since the Adam Levine-led band formed over 15 years ago, with the group going on to win three Grammy Awards and sell 20 million albums worldwide. Feldstein was childhood friends with Levine and was also instrumental in the frontman’s role on NBC’s The Voice.
In addition to Maroon 5, Feldstein’s company oversees a diverse roster clients, including R&B singer Miguel, Elle King, Big Boi, Rick Springfield, The B-52’s and Chromeo. CAM also shepherded the career of Sara Bareilles and launched Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines album. CAM is headquartered in Los Angeles and has offices in New York.
Feldstein was previously married to Clint Eastwood’s daughter Francesca Eastwood, but the 2013 union was annulled. He is survived by two children.
The child of costume designer Sharon Lyn and Guns N’ Roses accountant and top Hollywood business manager Richard Feldstein, he is also survived by siblings Hill and actress Beanie Feldstein, who currently stars in Lady Bird and the Broadway revival of Hello, Dolly! with Bette Midler.
The family has asked for privacy during this difficult and unexpected time. In lieu of food and flowers, they plan to announce a charity in the coming weeks where memorial donations can be made in Feldstein’s name.
