'Walking Dead' Stuntman John Bernecker's Mom Speaks Out After His Death, Sets Up Memorial Site

Susan Bernecker, the mother of late stuntman John Bernecker, is speaking out after he tragically passed away after an accident on the set of The Walking Dead earlier this month.

John was a respected stunt actor who has worked on such films as Logan, Get Out, Fantastic Four, and more.

“Thank you to all who are concerned and loved my son, John. Your outpouring of love for him is magnificent,” Susan said in a statement provided exclusively to JustJared.com.

“Because of so much false press the only official site for John Bernecker at this time is LiveLikeJohnBernecker.com,” she added. “In lieu of flowers, donations are appreciated and can be made on the website.”

Funeral services for John will take place this Saturday (July 29) in New Orleans. We continue to send our thoughts and condolences to all of his loved ones during this difficult time.
