Friends, fans and family members of Jon James are mourning the loss of the 34-year-old after he fell to his death filming a music video on an airplane wing.

Jon James, a Canadian rapper, was killed during a music video shoot when a stunt atop an airplane wing went wrong. "He had trained intensely for this stunt; however, as Jon got further out onto the wing of the plane, it caused the small Cessna to go into a downward spiral that the pilot couldn't correct", a statement from his team said.

"Jon held onto the wing until it was too late, and by the time he let go, he didn't have time to pull his chute", the statement continued. "He impacted and died instantly", the statement added.

After the accident, the plane was able to land safely with no one else being injured. McMurray was found dead in a field near Westwold, British Columbia.

After an injury left him with a broken back and shattered heel, he pursued a career in the music industry.

In the video posted to Instagram on October 2, McMurray is with Squamish's Rory Bushfield, a Canadian professional skier and base jumper, and fellow base jumper Cody Matechuk, the 2018 Snow BikeCross gold medalist at the X Games. He released a song with fellow rapper Riff Raff - titled "The Man" - earlier this month, along with a short video which showed him jumping out of a plane.

"Jon's one goal in life was to spread his message of positivity, following one's true calling, and improving one's self while living life to the fullest as big as humanly possible, he put his entire being and soul into his life's mission and didn't deviate for a moment", the page reads. He had previously posted video of himself training for the video. He is survived by his wife, Kali James, his parents, Doug McMurray and Jen McMurray, and his brother, Jarred McMurray.
