“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. 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. He impacted and died instantly,” read the statement.

“Jon was an incredibly passionate person and was always smiling. He filled everyone around him with positivity, and never spoke poorly about another person. He truly had a heart of gold,” it added.

The plane landed safely and police are now investigating the death, local media said.

Born in Calgary, Alberta, McMurray was a professional skier but he ventured into music after he suffered a broken back and shattered heal.
