Jack & Kristina’s Son Harrison Passed
Jack’s post comes a month after he and ex-wife Kristina Wagner lost their beloved son, Harrison. As The Blast previously reported, Harrison was found dead in a parking lot in the North Hollywood neighborhood of Los Angeles on Monday, June 6, around 5 a.m.
Authorities arrived on the scene and pronounced Harrison dead, concluding that there was no foul play involved in his death. The bright light was just 27.
Harrison was the youngest son of the beloved former couple. He has an older brother named Peter. Days after Harrison’s passing, the L.A. Coroner’s Office released a statement saying more investigation needed to be done to determine the official cause of death.
“Cause of death is deferred. Deferred means that after an autopsy, a cause of death has not been determined, and the medical examiner is requesting more investigation into the death, including additional studies,” the statement read.
However, days after his heartbroken parents broke their silence and revealed the cause of his death. Jack and Kristina shared that their baby boy lost his battle with substance addiction in a tribute posted on the New House Life Recovery community website.
Harrison Died From Substance Addiction
The devastated parents began their statement, “Harrison was a bright, exuberant young man whose smile lit up any room he was in. He has left behind many men and family members who loved him deeply.”
They continued, “We are heartbroken that he ultimately lost his battle with addiction and we hope that Harrison’s memory will live on through this scholarship and will help other young men get help for their addiction that would not otherwise be able to afford it.”

Jack and Kristina then announced that they were launching The Harrison Wagner Scholarship Fund to help young men who were dealing with addiction.
The funds donated toward the scholarships would be used to pay either part or the full rent for young men who can’t afford their care at New Life House. Harrison was mourned by his brother Peter and girlfriend Sophia Bui in touching separate Instagram posts.
Harrison was laid to rest in late June and his parents’ “General Alum” co-stars were there to pay their respects and offer support.
