The reality star is reported to have died on Tuesday after a tragic motorcycle accident
Top Chef star Aaron Grissom has died at the age of 34.
Aaron is reported to have died on Tuesday after suffering ‘”multiple blunt force injuries” in a motorcycle accident, according to TMZ.
Pierce County medical examiner ruled Aaron’s death an accident.
Aaron found fame on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives and appeared on Season 12 of Bravo’s Top Chef in 2014.
Following that, talented Aaron continued his work by cooking for touring singers, including Billie Eilish, before concerts were cancelled following the coronavirus outbreak this year.
Yu Nanakornphanom, who worked with Aaron at the Moshi Moshi ramen bar, has told reporters the accident happened near Chambers Bay in Washington.
He said the chef had been living in Mexico during the pandemic after his work was cancelled.
Paying tribute to his friend Nanakornphanom said that Aaron donated him one of his kidneys.
“We were joking around, and he said, ‘I can give you a kidney.’ We happened to be a match — we’re both Type O. It’s very rare to find Type O,” Nanakornphanom told the News Tribune.
When Nanakornphanom told Aaron he could be facing a three to four year wait for a kidney, Aaron didn’t hesitate to step up.
