Jax shared with The Daily Dish prior to the passing of his father how painful the news was. "It's in his throat, his esophagus, so it's rough. It's rough, because my dad, he's like my idol. My dad was always the person who never got sick,” he said.

“I always looked up to him. I call him all the time. To see him so vulnerable, I've never seen him emotional my whole entire life. My dad's never been to the doctor in his entire life until now," he continued. "This is such a horrible disease. He doesn't deserve this. He's, like, the perfect man. He's the perfect human being, never done a thing wrong in his life. So it just sucks. It just really sucks. I don't really have anything to say about it. It's a sh**** disease. It's hurt our family. It's hurt everybody. It just really sucks. During the holidays, it doesn't make it any easier."
