Actress Beanie Feldstein, Jonah Hill's sister finally gave an insight into how it felt losing Jordan Feldstein. The actress shared an image showing her written essay on her Instagram page, expressing what her grief felt like. 


Jordan Feldstein may be late, but his memory lives long in the hearts of all of those he touched while alive. One of those is unsurprisingly his sister, Beanie Feldstein, who wrote an essay titled “Grief Glasses,” which was published on InStyle Magazine.


She shared the essay on her Instagram page. Jordan Feldstein died unexpectedly in December of 2017 as a result of pulmonary embolism, at the age of forty. During his lifetime, Jordan was a talent manager and worked with the band, Maroon Five and singer, Robin Thicke.

In her essay, Beanie compared the sorrow she went through after Jordan’s death to that experienced when wearing a pair of glasses that can’t be taken off. Beanie wrote of how Jordan was a generous, intelligent and loving person and described him as a loving father to his sons and big brother to her.


She described grief as being impossible and unable to be contained, summarized or enclosed. She, however, said that the death of her brother had given her a new view about life and humanity, explaining that she was not expecting such a monumental shift in perspective. 

She further explained that though she sometimes wished she could take off her "grief glasses," she remained grateful for having them on and being a member of the group of people who have lost a loved one.


Beanie’s post was well received by people who viewed it, and they all described the essay as being beautiful and well written. Notable respondents to the post include Olivia Wilde, who described Beanie as being an incredible person. 

Jordan Feldstein died on the 22nd of December 2017 after suffering a cardiac arrest. On the night of his death, he called 911, complaining of shortness of breath. By the time paramedics arrived, he had already gone into a full cardiac arrest and died soon afterward.
