Antwon Jackson’s Death

BET reports that Wendy Williams’ very talented wig stylist, Antwon Jackson, has passed away.  It’s been a very difficult year for Wendy and this definitely makes it even tougher.  The Emmy-winning stylist was only 44-years-old.  Anyone who watches The Wendy Williams Show remembers how beautiful his spirit was.

According to Centric many referred to him as a “wigologist” because he was an expert.  Jackson was born and raised in North Carolina and is survived by his son, Dontay.  We’re sure that Wendy will do anything she can to help his family.

We’re sure that Wendy and her team will dedicate this season to Antwon.  It’s hard to even think about the show, but we’re certain that he would want them to continue to work hard.  He was truly dedicated to his craft as proven by his last Instagram post:

The picture shows some of the beautiful wigs that he designed for Wendy’s upcoming season.  If there’s one thing that we love about social media, it’s the fact that it captures unforgettable moments like the image above.  While we can’t stop crying, we appreciate the fact that we always have his timeline to look back to and remember the good times.  Antwon is gone but he’s certainly not forgotten.  To live in the hearts of others is to never die.
