Such a sad story
Jason was 35 years old
Davis was the son of wine grower Nebil Zarif and Nancy Davis Rickel, who is the daughter of Marvin and Barbara.
"I am so heartbroken to share the saddest news of my life that my son Jason Davis passed away this morning in Los Angeles," Nancy toldThe Hollywood Reporterin a statement. "Jason had a true heart of gold with such a zest for life. He was such a caring soul to everybody who ever knew him. He loved his friends and his family above all else. We ask for privacy as we take time to grieve this most devastating loss."
Though Davis had been open about his struggles with substance abuse — appearing onCelebrity Rehab With Dr. Drewin 2010-11 — most recently he had been committed to his recovery and had co-founded the charity Cure Addiction Now. For the past year and a half, Davis dedicated himself to the organization, which will be funding groundbreaking research to find therapies to help stop the cycle of substance use disorder and help people not only detox but stay in permanent recovery.
