It’s with great sadness I share news of the passing of Jessi Zazu (aka Jessi Darlin) of Those Darlins. The 28 year old lost her battle with cancer yesterday.
For those of you who have checked out this blog for many years, you’ll know I was a fan of Those Darlins from the start. Having seen them not only in Cleveland multiple times but also at Bonnaroo, I got to interact with her more than once and she was always as nice as could be.
She never hid the fact that she had cancer and was very open about her fight with it. This news came as a complete shock to me.
I’m lucky enough to say I saw her play in a band that she loved and was even able to capture some photos of her doing so.
RIP Jessi Darlin.
