Police were reportedly called to a residence in New York where his body was found.

Jansen has continued working in the industry, with IMDb listing his most recent release as 2022′s Love and Love Not.

He has several additional projects listed on his profile as in production or development. One – Aaah! Roach! – is said to be in post-production.
