‘Metalocalypse’ Director Jon Schnepp on Life Support
Metalocalypse writer, director and producer Jon Schnepp is on life support following a "catastrophic stroke." His partner, Holly, confirmed the situation in a post on Instagram. "While everyone is desperate for updates on his condition, we ask for your understanding on giving us the privacy we need over the next few days as we deal with the difficult concerning Jon's care," she wrote. "Please keep him in your prayers, and in your heart."
Schnepp was admitted to a Los Angelas-area hospital late last week. Holly wrote in an update, "My future husband is sicker than I’ve seen him in 15 years, and not being there with him is killing me. Health is all we have you guys. Nothing else matters if you don’t have your health. You can’t fight the world’s bullshit without it."
A GoFundMe campaign has been launched to help Schnepp's family with his medical expenses. $98,781 of the $150,000 goal has been raised at the time of this report. Donation options via Venmo and PayPal are available as well. You can see additional information in Holly's post below.
Aside from Metalocalypse, Schnepp has worked in some capacity with everything from Ferris Bueller's Day Off (actor) and Aqua Teen Hunger Force (writer) to The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened? (director, producer, writer) and the Collider Movie Talk (panelist). He also appeared as extras in both Iron Maiden's "Be Quick or Be Dead" and Metallica's "The Memory Remains" music videos.
