Jonathan Huber, Pro Wrestler Known as Brodie Lee and Luke Harper, Dies at 41

Jonathan Huber, a professional wrestler for both WWE and All Elite Wrestling, best known by his ring names Brodie Lee and Luke Harper, died Saturday of unknown reasons. He was 41 years old.
His death was published by All Elite Wrestling, which Huber had signed with since March.
“The All Elite Wrestling family is heartbroken. In an industry full of good people, Jon Huber was immensely respected and loved in every way - a wild and compelling talent, a thoughtful mentor, and just a very kind soul that strongly contradicted his personality as Mr. Brodie Lee, ”the organization said in a Statement.
"Jon's love for his wife Amanda and children Brodie and Nolan was evident to all of us lucky enough to spend time with him, and we send our love and support today and always to his lovely family," the statement continued . "Jon's popularity among his peers and his influence on the wrestling word has been worldwide and beyond the AEW, so that loss will be felt for a long time to come."

Although his cause of death was not made public, Wrestling News reported Saturday that Huber's wife said in a statement on Instagram that he had recently fallen ill.
Born in 1979 in Rochester, New York, Huber began his career as a backyard wrestler in the late 1990s. He was signed to Rochester Pro Wrestling in 2003, where he developed his Brodie Lee ring name in homage to the character Brodie Bruce, who played Jason Lee in Kevin Smith's 1995 film "Mallrats".
In 2007, Huber began wrestling for Philadelphia-based wrestling promotion Chikara and Syracuse, New York-based Squared Circle Wrestling, and added Jersey All Pro Wrestling and Independent Matches to his resume the next year.
Huber signed a development contract with WWE in 2012 and began using the new ring name Luke Harper that year. Huber was primarily associated with the Wyatt Family stable and stayed with WWE through December 2019. At the time, he registered a trademark for Brodie Lee and made his debut under that name in All Elite Wrestling in March 2020.
Huber's fans and professional wrestling colleagues paid tribute after the announcement. See an example below:

So much pain comes with losing someone like Jon. But everywhere I look I see an entire industry that pays respect and shows him love. That alone shows what an incredible man he was. #RIPBrodieLee

Except to hear that Jon has died. He saved me from a broken neck. He would get so mad if I pulled up a chair he could sit in and called him a "taker sir".
"You will bring me warmth, boy."
Condolences to his family and colleagues who loved him very much. #RIPBrodieLee

One of the first men I could train with after signing in 2016.
