Tragic Loss: Family Devastated as America’s Got Talent Star Scott Alexander Suffers Stroke

America’s Got Talent alum Scott Alexander has tragically passed away after suffering a stroke while working on a cruise ship in St. Kitts. His wife Jenny announced the heartbreaking news on Instagram, sharing a picture of the family and expressing their grief. She wrote, “I lost my husband yesterday. My kids lost their father. He suffered a stroke while working on a cruise ship in St Kitts and did not make it home to us. We are shattered. Please hold us in your prayers.”

Many social media users expressed their condolences, expressing how Scott must have been an incredible person to have chosen to spend his life with Jenny. Scott had been active on Instagram and had last posted five weeks ago.

Scott had appeared on America’s Got Talent in Season 6 with an illusion act in which a woman seemed to appear out of nowhere, be supported by water, then levitate. He was sent to Las Vegas after judges Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel voted him through. However, he was eventually voted out in the quarterfinals following a performance of an illusion in which a gospel choir disappeared, and then reappeared a distance away.

Many fans have taken to Twitter to share their condolences over the sudden and sad loss, expressing how the world of magic is a poorer place without him. Scott is survived by his wife Jenny and three children. Everyone is holding them in their prayers during this difficult time.
