Reality TV Star Suddenly Dies - Here’s What We Know

The truth of the old saying “Enjoy every day like it’s your last one” is undeniable. One sad example of this is the news that ex-Survivor contestant Dan Kay died unexpectedly on New Year's Eve. Kay was only 40 years old.

Authorities note that Kay’s death appears to be natural, and there is no criminal investigation at this time.

An attorney who lived in New Hampshire, Kay has two children (Reese Elizabeth Kay and Jackson 'Jax' Russell-Reid Kay) and a long-time girlfriend Jennifer DePietro.

His obituary noted he was “known for his hard work, dedication, attention to detail and strong work ethic,” and mentioned his high energy personality, love of running, skiing and music.

Kay was a devout Christian, and had earned a bachelor's degree from University of Mass-Amherst and a law degree from Syracuse University in upstate New York.

Of note, Kay was the eighth person voted off the 17th season of the CBS reality show Survivor. That was the 2008 season, and the show was set in Africa.

Survivor host Jeff Probst tweeted his condolences and noted: “The Survivor family sends our love to Dan's family.”

Another Survivor participant, Jessica “Sugar” Kiper, posted on Facebook that her thoughts were with Kay's family.
