Influencer Jesse Kozechen and his pet dog have reportedly died in a tragic car accident.
According to Kobi5, the 29-year-old crashed on Highway 199 in Oregon at around 10:30am on May 23.
The police’s ‘preliminary investigation’ reportedly showed that Kozechen ‘swerved to avoid traffic that had slowed for a turning car,’ before he ‘over-corrected and lost control, sliding into the southbound lane and colliding with another vehicle,’ reports the outlet.
The Brazilian social media personality’s family have taken to his Instagram and stated that they will ‘no longer crowdfund,’ before asking fans to report fake fundraisers.
Reportedly, Kozechen was on a road trip when the tragedy took place. It’s believed he was documenting the journey.
In one of his most recent posts, he reportedly penned: “The camp from yesterday to today has already started to get cold and from now on it will get colder and colder but the good thing about the tent is that it withstands negative temperatures well and keeps the interior very warm and it also has a ventilation system that helps not condense so much hot air inside it!
“We are camping in the state of Oregon in the middle of nowhere and from here we continue our journey towards the border with Canada, but first let’s visit some guys that I’m a fan!
“Now let me prepare my breakfast, [and] dismantle the tent so we can continue our journey!”
Fans have paid tribute in the comments section, with one writing: “Rest in peace! You lived your dream! We gonna miss both of you for eternity!”
“End of the trail, God bless you!” added another. “May God and the angels are there waiting for both of you.”
