Jansen Panettiere, Hayden Panettiere’s brother, passed away at 28. Jansen passed away over the weekend in New York City. No foul play was believed to have been involved; a source said TMZ, however, the cause of Jansen’s death was not immediately known.
Jansen, who was five years Hayden’s junior, adopted her Hollywood career. He appeared on shows like Even Stevens, The X’s, Tiger Cruise, Racing Stripes, The Martial Arts Child, The Walking Dead, Perfect Game, and How High 2 throughout the early 2000s. He had an appearance in the Christmas movie Love and Love Not in 2022.

Jansen was enthusiastic about art, even if his time in Hollywood is what made him most famous. The actor’s Instagram is flooded with vibrant abstract art and photos.
His most recent upload appears to be a photo of Catherine Michie, his girlfriend. He used a blue heart emoji as the caption for a picture of Michie standing next to the piece of art.

Just three weeks ago, Jansen shared a playful photo of himself and Hayden, 33, cutting his hair in mid-January, with the captioning: “Not the first haircut she’s tried to give me.” Lesley Vogel and Skip Panettiere, the parents of Jansen and Hayden, are still alive.
