LOS ANGELES—Jay Dymel, a 27-year-old muscular blond who worked extensively with Falcon Studio Group, died Wednesday at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, where he had fallen into a coma.
Ryan Stone—who had performed with Dymel and posed for pictures with him as recently as Sunday during L.A. Pride celebrations—tweeted Dymel was on life support in the hospital, but no immediate cause for his coma or death has been reported.
Falcon Studios announced Dymel’s passing in a tweet Wednesday evening, saying, “It is with great sadness to inform the passing of @jay_dymel today! Our thoughts go out to Jay’s family, friends and partner @RyanStoneXxX A GoFundMe has been created in Jay’s honor and can be accessed at the link below” with a link to the fundraising page.
The GoFundMe is set to raise $10,000 to cover costs of cremation and a memorial.
Alexa Abraxas, who created the GoFundMe, wrote, “Today we lost an amazing human being! We lost a brother, a son, a best friend and most of all a sweet soul. Jules had an infectious personality, it was so easy to love being around him. No matter what he always made you feel loved and like family and now he’s gone. Jules was loved by so many and will remain in our heart forever. He had made his imprint and impact on this world and our community. Please help us raise money for his cremation and memorial and it is needed. Every little bit helps and is much appreciated. Thank you so much for your donation and your kind words about this sweet angel.”
Falcon Studios Group and NakedSword Originals—which together have released five of the gay porn scenes Dymel shot in his short career—issued a statement about star’s passing.
The statement reads, “We are all heartbroken about the loss of Jay Dymel. Not only was he a bright star, he was a loving and caring man and friend, who was embraced by so many. We send our deepest condolences to his family and friends in this time of loss and sadness.”
Dymel first starred in Bare, produced by NakedSword in December of 2018. He also shot for NakedSword Originals in Five Brothers: Family Values, Five Brothers: The Takedown and Bare 2: Boyfriends and Fuck Buddies. Dymel also appears in Falcon’s recently released Room 106.*
NakedSword director mr. Pam—who recruited Dymel for a lead role in Five Brothers—was at Cedars-Sinai earlier today when the young performer passed away. She recalls reaching out to Dymel about Five Brothers and “dancing around the office” when he expressed interest in the role. “We met up for lunch in the Castro and I just immediately fell in love with him. He’s just such a great guy,” mr. Pam says. She and colleague Leon Forte became friendly with Dymel and Stone. “All of a sudden we were all best friends, the four of us,” Pam says.
“I took a gamble having a brand-new guy do one of the lead roles,” said the Five Brothers director, “but he showed up and was absolutely wonderful and perfect and just blew me away. His acting ability was just stellar. And his commitment to the role and his intensity in the dialog scenes. And the boy loves sex. He was a dynamite porn performer.” Dymel played “the enforcer—the naughty bad boy of all the brothers.” He and the other Five Brothers stars can also be seen in a music video for Jarrett Moon’s song “Ghost,” which can be found on NakedSword.com.
Pam notes that she first shot Dymel for Bare with boyfriend Ryan Stone, and she thoroughly enjoyed the experience. “I begged my boss to film them again. They just have so much love and passion,” Pam says. The second scene was for Bare 2: Boyfriends, which she believes is coming out next month.
Pam reports that Dymel’s parents were at the hospital. “Their hearts are breaking but they just kept telling us how happy they were that he had so many friends and loved ones to support him …” she says. “There were just so many people in porn—porn stars and friends—who came in to Cedars Sinai. There were about 40 or 50 people who came by last night.”
She continues, “We have this porn prayer that we always do before we film a scene, and Jay had always loved when we did the prayer. Sometimes we would do it with him when life issues came up. So we had everybody in his hospital room hold hands in a circle, including him, and we said a little prayer. I think that was a beautiful moment.”
A memorial is planned soon in West Hollywood, according to mr. Pam. “And also there’s a GoFundMe page … to help expenses with his cremation and also the travel for his parents and to help his boyfriend out. It goes to a really good cause.”
Several members of the adult industry posted their condolences and feelings on social media following the announcement of Dymel’s passing.
“Never would I have imagined standing holding your hand and having to say goodbye to you,” tweeted Nick Fitt. “Thank you for 4 years of friendship, laughs, smiles and support. We all love you so very much Jules … Today you get to spread your wings and fly and forever be our guardian angel.”
Steven Lee posted on Twitter, “Jay is a wonderful person and I’m very lucky to have met him. My heart goes out to Ryan, no one should ever have to deal with this I’m so sorry.”
