‘Star Trek’ actor Jon Paul Steuer died of suicide
Former “Star Trek” and “Little Giants” actor Jon Paul Steuer’s January death has been ruled a suicide.
Steuer, who was 33 years old, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, The Blast reported, citing Portland, Oregon police.
Steuer played Alexander Rozhenko in “The Next Generation” saga of the sci-fi series and also held the role of Quentin Kelly in the ’90s sitcom “Grace Under Fire” before quitting acting.
His bandmates from the group P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S confirmed his death in a heartbreaking tribute in early January.
“The addition of Jonny to our dysfunctional band family was one of the best choices that we have ever made, and he brought a much-needed sense of fun and lightheartedness to everything we did,” they wrote. “He was only with us for a little more than a year, but we managed to cram a lifetime of great experiences into his tenure as our singer…
“We’ve lost our singer, but far, far more than that we’ve lost a friend. Rest in peace, Jonny…we love you.”
Steuer died on New Year’s Day in Portland.
