Jon James McMurray died on Saturday afternoon from the fall, which occurred from the wing of a Cessna flying in British Columbia where McMarry had been working on a film stunt project for months.

Jon James McMurray died after a stunt-gone-wrong while filming a music video. He was attempting a stunt where he would walk onto the wing of a small Cessna while it was in the air. James tried to hold on, but eventually had to let go and by then it was too late to use his parachute. He impacted and died instantly.

"Jon was an incredibly passionate person and was always smiling", the statement continues. The pilot and plane landed safely.

A statement from McMurray's management details what happened.

McMurray's body was found in a field in the community of Westwold, northwest of Vernon in British Columbia.

In the video posted to Instagram on October 2, McMurray is with Squamish's Rory Bushfield, a Canadian professional skier and base jumper, and fellow base jumper Cody Matechuk, the 2018 Snow BikeCross gold medalist at the X Games.

The friends started doing silly stunts together to make videos to entertain their friends, he said, and McMurray carried his love of stunts into his music career.

The video for his 2015 track HELLO featured him rapping to camera while skydiving and several videos and photos on his Instagram page showed him jumping out of planes.

Following the news of his death, a number of tributes rushed in from social media.

"This fund is to help his people get his stuff out there to the world in the right way", Bushfield wrote.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police, coroner's office, and Transportation Safety Board have begun an investigation into McMurray's death.
