This is horrible news on a Friday night. PWInsider has confirmed that former ECW star New Jack has passed away at age 58.

PWInsider.com is extremely sad to report that Jerome “New Jack” Young passed away earlier this afternoon following a heart attack in North Carolina. PWInsider.com was informed by Young’s wife Jennifer of his passing.”

New Jack rose to fame as a member of The Gangstas tag team first in Smokey Mountain Wrestling and notably in Extreme Championship Wrestling. He recently came back into the public’s eye when he was interviewed and featured on Vice TV’s Dark Side of the Ring.

Our thoughts go out to Young’s family and friends.
