Young fashion model Jeremy Ruehlemann passed away suddenly at the age of 27, his friends and acquaintances announced Sunday.
The cause of the New Jersey man's death remains a mystery. Throughout his modeling career, he worked for designers including Christian Siriano, Perry Ellis, and John Varvatos.
“I have never posted anything like this but to lose a friend who was such a beautiful soul is just really hard,” design star Siriano said.
“This is for Jeremy, the most beautiful man that gave so much love to everyone he met no matter what.”
“Goodbye, Sweet Jeremy. R.I.P. Jeremy Ruehlmann,” Halston creative director Ken Downing said.
“Love to your family who you adored, as much as they love and adored you.”
Just days before his death, Ruehlmann posted a behind-the-scene picture from a Tommy Hilfiger shoot on his Instagram account.
