As reported on the Brand New Machine Facebook page, via vocalist Brantly Thompson:
With a heavy heart and a lot of tears we say goodbye to our friend, our brother and co-founder of Brand New Machine, Jon Ster. He was the wittiest, tender hearted and one of the most talented guys I have ever met. His laugh was infectious and he would light up a room just by walking in. The world was a much better place with Jon in it and he left us a legacy of great music, a beautiful daughter and tons of amazing memories. I’m going to miss you and your famous one liners my friend. Thank you for being a part of my life. Rest well, I love you brother.
