Former Gay Adult Film Star Jasper Robinson Dead at 21

Jasper

Two months after he officially retired from the gay porn industry, Jasper Robinson has died at the age of 21.

It's not yet clear what felled Robinson, who suffered from a heart condition, according to Towleroad. He died December 13, but news of his death hit the Internet just this weekend.

Before announcing the end to his porn career via an October tweet, Robinson appeared in dozens of adult films for studios including CockyBoys and Boy Crush. Robinson, a Washington State native who called San Francisco home, was remembered fondly by friends and peers in the adult film industry. Robinson's ex-boyfriend Ryker Madison — an adult film performer as well — tweeted a poem in memory of him.

Robinson is the third young gay porn star to die in recent months. Both Zac Stevens, 25, and Dimitri Kane, 20, died in November, with reports indicating they took their own lives.
