Cause Of Death Revealed For WHEN CALLS THE HEART Star Jack Wagner’s Son

By Movieguide® Contributor

The son of WHEN CALLS THE HEART star Jack Wagner, Harrison Wagner, was found dead on June at the age of 27. 

A recent report from the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner revealed that Harrison’s death was listed as an “accident.” The report also cited Fentanyl and Alprazolam (another name for Xanax) as the official cause.

Following his death, his parents started the Harrison Wagner Scholarship Fund.

“Harrison was a bright, exuberant young man whose smile lit up any room he was in. He has left behind many men and family members who loved him deeply,” their statement read. “We hope that Harrison’s memory will live on through this scholarship and will help other young men get help for their addiction that would not otherwise be able to afford it.”

Movieguide® previously reported on Harrison’s death:

GENERAL HOSPITAL and WHEN CALLS THE HEART star Jack Wagner’s son Harrison was found dead in a Los Angeles parking lot earlier this week. He was 27 years old. 

Harrison was pronounced dead at the scene at 5:14 a.m. on Monday morning. The cause of death is still under investigation and is currently listed as “deferred.”

Per Fox News, “Deferred means that after an autopsy, a cause of death has not been determined and the medical examiner is requesting more investigation into the death, including additional studies. Once the tests/studies come back, the doctor evaluates the case again and makes the cause of death determination.”

Harrison has struggled with drug addiction in the past, but it is unclear whether his substance abuse issues had anything to do with his death. 

“I fear for my youngest son’s safety. Harrison has struggled with drugs & alcohol just as I did when I was younger,” Wagner previously said during one of Harrison’s relapses.

Harrison’s mother is soap star Kristina Wagner.

Her last Instagram featured both her sons as they left the family ranch house.

“A bittersweet farewell to the place we called Wagner Ranch for 25 years. The prickly beauty of the high desert and a landscape surrounded by national forests always reminded us that there is peace when you are willing to look for it. Oh Ranch, it’s time to part. We’ll miss you so much with our heartwarming memories. We know that there are many opportunities for joy ahead. #grateful #PeterandHarrison #lovemysons,” Kristina posted.

Please keep the Wagner family in your prayers at this time.
