It is with a broken heart and deep sorrow that I must announce the tragic passing of Jack Flint. I’ve tried several times today to create a post, but you can’t comment on what you can’t process.
The photo below is when Jake and I excitedly signed our artist management contract. It was the beginning of a wonderful friendship and partnership. Jake was more than that to me, I loved him like a son.
Funniest, funniest, hardworking, dedicated artist I’ve ever worked with in my life. After he and Brenda got married we were going to do some business together – and that was yesterday. Yes-yesterday. Jake has a million friends and I don’t know how everyone will cope with this tragic loss.
We need prayers – these are all very real. Please pray for his new wife Brenda, Jake’s precious mother, his sister and his family and friends. This can be incredibly difficult for many people. We love Jake and you in our hearts forever.
Flint’s new wife, Brenda Wilson, posted video footage of the couple’s wedding day, captioning the post, “I don’t get it.”

Who is Flint?
Born in Mounds, Oklahoma in 1985, Flint first learned to play guitar when his father asked some musician friends to teach him the instrument after receiving a diagnosis of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).
The singer’s website says those beginnings inspired him to attend Flint bluegrass festivals and eventually lead him to start playing.
In 2020, he released his latest single “What’s Your Name”. While this is going on, Flint has several shows planned for 2022 and 2023. He also became a prominent artist in Oklahoma, Texas and other states.

Kevin said, Steve Liddell introduced me to Jake over the phone a few years ago. Apart from being involved in music, we both come from a petroleum industry background. We texted back and forth about getting together for lunch, but couldn’t line up our schedules to meet in person. Fast forward to 10/25/2021 & fate brings us together at the Amigo The Devil show at The Vanguard in Tulsa.

My friend Chris West gave me the ticket and as I walked in I was greeted by Brad Dunipin who said “Jake Flint’s here too!” I went over and finally tried to introduce myself. Me, him and our besties (Crystal & Brenda) finished several rounds of Jameson and enjoyed the show. I last saw Jake at the Oklahoma Music HOF Induction for Mike McClure. We greeted each other with a smile and a big hug that will last forever. My heart goes out to Brenda and the families. RIP Ole Jacob Flint…..I wish I had known you longer!
What a punch, man. 😢 Jack Flint is a man’s prince, the world is less without him. Unreal. https://t.co/e8w7B02vuE pic.twitter.com/YSKN41b1z3
