Jared Serra was diagnosed with Stage IV Hodgkin's Lymphoma in February 2015.
On December 2, 2016, Jared died after a sudden fluid overload in his lungs from Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He spent the last five days fighting for his life. At 4:30 am, they had an emergency surgery to place larger tubes in his sides to drain the fluid because it was causing pockets in the alveoli. He had a heart attack and was placed on life support. He was on life support for five hours before he sustained another heart attack. Jared was pronounced dead after an hour of CPR therapy and resuscitation attempts.
