After being in a coma from a brain hemorrhage, Jamie-Lynn Sigler’s brother Adam Sigler passed away on Wednesday, Nov. 12.
Adam was in the hospital and remained in a coma after suffering a hemorrhage on Tuesday when Jamie-Lynn posted a photo on her Facebook page of herself with her older brother. Friends and family posted messages of well-wishes and commented on the photo, which depicted Jamie-Lynn and Adam beaming for the camera.
“My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family Jamie,” someone wrote on Jamie-Lynn’s Facebook wall. This accompanied a slew of other comments that told the actress how much they are all thinking about her and her loved ones.
According to sources, the hemorrhage was a total shock as Adam was in perceived good health before the ill-fated incident. “He was engaged. He was such a funny, amazing man. He was an incredible uncle who was loved by all his friends and family. He will be greatly missed,” an insider told Us Weekly.
Adam, who had a strong resemblance to Jamie-Lynn, was the oldest of three siblings, including middle brother Brian. He was not in show business like his sister and held a job as a stockbroker.
“Adam was always so happy and inspired Jamie to be a better person every day,” another source said. “She loved him dearly and will miss him more than anyone can ever imagine. The family was with him every second he was in a coma and was surrounded by his entire family when he passed.”
