“My best friend died today,” his wife Amanda Huber said on Instagram. “I never wanted to write out those words. My heart is broken. The world saw him as the amazing @brodielee (fka Luke Harper) but he was my best friend, my husband, and the greatest father you would ever meet. No words can express the love I feel or how broken I am right now. He passed surrounded by love ones after a hard fought battle with a non Covid related lung issue. The @mayoclinic is literally the best team of doctors and nurses in the world who surrounded me with constant love.

“On top of that, I can’t express my love and admiration for the way @allelitewrestling has treated not only my husband but myself and my kids. @margaret.stalvey @meghalegalgirl10 @americannightmarecody @thebrandirhodes @nickjacksonyb @mattjackson13 @kennyomegamanx @tonyrkhan and the rest of the team at AEW have helped keep me standing and pick up all the broken pieces. I’ve been surrounded by so much love and incredible people I can’t tag them all but they know who they are and I don’t think they will ever know how thankful I am for them.”

While you may not recognize him from his real name, you may recognize him from his stage names. He was a popular superstar in World Wrestling Entertainment as Luke Harper. For much of his time with WWE, he was known as a member of The Wyatt Family with Bray Wyatt and Erick Rowan.

Then, he went off to being a singles competitor, before reuniting with Rowan in a tag team before his departure.

“WWE is saddened to learn that Jon Huber, known to WWE fans as Luke Harper, passed away today at age 41,” WWE said in a statement.

After leaving WWE, he has been with All Elite Wrestling since October 2019. He was part of Dark Order in AEW.

“The All Elite Wrestling family is heartbroken,” the AEW post said on Instagram. “In an industry filled with good people, Jon Huber was exceptionally respected and beloved in every way — a fierce and captivating talent, a thoughtful mentor and simply a very kind soul that starkly contradicted his persona as Mr. Brodie Lee.

“Jon’s love for his wife Amanda, and children Brodie and Nolan, was evident to all of us, who were fortunate to spend time with him, and we send our love and support to his beautiful family, today and always. Jon’s popularity among his peers and influence on the wrestling world was worldwide and transcended AEW, so this loss will be felt by many for a long time. We were privileged at AEW to call Jon Huber a brother, a friend, and one of our own.”
