St. John is survived by his fiance Kseniya Mikhaleva and his two children Lola and Paris St. John. His other son, Julian, was 24 when he also committed suicide in 2014 while in a mental health facility.

On Sunday, St. John's attorney released a statement saying:

"The news of Kristoff St. John’s passing is heartbreaking. He was a very talented actor and an even better person."

Fans and colleagues alike were shocked when the news came of St. John's passing on Sunday. Former co-star Shemar Moore spoke to PEOPLE magazine about the loss.

He recalled:

"He opened doors for people who don’t even realize he opened doors, but he did. He opened doors and he was so committed to his craft. He always wanted to be better. He wanted to touch people and he did."

Moore further revealed that St. John would mentor him. He said he was like a brother:

“I’m raised an only child, but Kristoff is truly the closest thing to a brother and a brother’s love and a brother’s mentorship that I’ve ever known."

Moore went on to shower praises on to his beloved friend and castmate. He credited him with helping get his career to where it is. He also said that there would be no Malcolm Winters (his character on the show) if there wasn't a Neil Winters.

The network requested that viewers "keep his family in your thoughts." We encourage the same and send our condolences to the family of the handsome and talented St. John.
