Cause of death

In 2016, Jordison talked about suffering from acute transverse myelitis in a Metal Hammer interview. Its symptoms started in 2010 while touring with Murderdolls, but the disease was diagnosed long after. This progressed to the loss of use of his left leg. The neurological disease had temporarily cost him the use of his legs and caused him to be unable to play the drums before rehabilitation. He recovered with the aid of medical help and intensive work in the gym.

In a statement, Jordison’s family said he passed away peacefully in his sleep. They did not reveal his cause of death, but said his passing had left them with “empty hearts and feelings of indescribable sorrow”
