Jordan Feldstein, the longtime manager of rock band Maroon 5, suffered from a heart attack Saturday night. He has been pronounced dead at age forty.

Feldstein managed Maroon 5 since day one, guiding the band as they became one of music’s most successful and universally popular international artists with three Grammy Awards and twenty-million albums sold worldwide. As the CEO and founder of Career Artist Management (CAM), Feldstein also helped guide the careers of famous musicians, such as Robin Thicke, Miguel, Elle King, Big Boi, and more.

Feldstein was childhood friends with Adam Levine and also played an instrumental role in negotiating Maroon 5 frontman’s coach role on NBC’s The Voice.

In 2015, his company, CAM, teamed up with London-based Tap Management and added the managers of Lana Del Rey, Ben Mawson and Ed Millett, to its executive team.

Last year, Feldstein made it to No. 96 on Billboard’s Power 100 list. “All relationships are ­reciprocal,” Feldstein said at the time.

Feldstein’s family has released the following statement following his death:

Unfortunately, last night Jordan called 911 for shortness of breath, when paramedics arrived it was determined he went into full cardiac arrest and passed away shortly thereafter.

His family asks for privacy during this extremely difficult and unexpected time.

In lieu of food and flowers, the family will announce a charity in the coming weeks where memorial donations can be made in Jordan’s name. This article will be updated when the charity is announced.
