In January of this year, one of the True Blood crew members passed away, and the producers, cast and crew have formed a Trust Fund to help secure the financial future of his children.

Jesse James Cartwright was only 39 years old and left behind 3 children, a mother, brother and sister, as well as an extended family and many friends.

Jesse worked for True Blood for several years and was greatly liked and appreciated by his colleagues and all the crew and cast members. The news of his passing was a great shock for everybody. Executive Producer Greg Fienberg gave a touching speech for the gathered crew about how they had lost a brother in the True Blood Family. Jesse passed away when True Blood was shooting episode 4.04, this episode is therefore dedicated to his memory.

True Blood fans are invited to make a donation, no matter how small, in support of the Trust Fund. You will find the PayPal button here.

In support of the Trust Fund, True Blood fan sites The Vault and are auctioning off a special True Blood Season 2 Pack that includes:

  • True Blood Season 2 DVD (Region 1) signed by Stephen Moyer, Anna Paquin, Sam Trammell, Kristin Bauer, Joe Manganiello, Deborah Ann Woll, Jim Parrack and Allan Hyde
