The Sopranos actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler is in mourning, after suddenly losing her older brother, Adam Sigler. According to Us Weekly, Adam suffered a brain hemorrhage and was with his family in the hospital when he passed on Wednesday, November 12.
According to sources close to the family, Adam had no health related issues before his brain hemorrhage, and was just starting his future.
“He was engaged. He was such a funny, amazing man. He was an incredible uncle who was loved by all his friends and family. He will be greatly missed.”
Sources close to the actress told the outlet that Jamie-Lynn Sigler was very close with her older brother, and this sudden loss is a huge blow to Sigler and the whole family.
“Adam was always so happy and inspired Jamie to be a better person every day.”
The source continued, “She loved him dearly and will miss him more than anyone can ever imagine. The family was with him every second he was in a coma and was surrounded by his entire family when he passed.”
When Adam, a stockbroker, entered a coma, Jamie-Lynn changed her profile picture to a photo of the pair. Immediately friends of the actress sent her condolences on her Facebook.
“My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Jamie,” one person wrote.
Another friend said, “Holding you and your family close to my heart. Adam will always be a part of you.”
Since news broke of Adam Sigler’s sudden passing, fans and acquaintances have come out of the woodwork to send their condolences through Twitter.
