It is with great sadness that we must report the death of Local 479 member Jarrad D. Blade, a craft service assistant on the TV series MacGyver.

Funeral arrangements are incomplete at this time but we will pass them along as soon as we receive them. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Update: In lieu of flowers or cards, the family of Jarrad Blade ask that donations be made to the Jarrad Blade Scholarship Fund (a GoFundMe), which will “continue to forever honor his memory”. Visitation (wake) for Jarrad will be held on Friday, August 12th, at Gregory B. Levett 4347 Flat Shoals Pkwy Decatur GA 30034, from 10am to 8 pm. The family will be there from 7pm to 8pm.
