Jon LaLanne, one of the late fitness guru Jack LaLanneâ€™s three children, is ready to take over the family business and become the new official spokesperson for his fatherâ€™s fitness company.
Jack has passed away due to respiratory problems at the age of 96 on Sunday (January 24). The family is absolutely devastated, but thankful for all the messages of support and condolences they have deceived from friends and fans of the fitness legend.
Jon told TMZ, “Though we are saddened by our father’s passing, the overwhelming response from fans and the media has made us all feel he is still with us.”
He added, “I plan to carry on the family business. I will be alongside my mother Elaine, my wife Lora, my brother Dan and my sister Yvonne touring the country preaching my father’s common sense approach to a longer and better life.”
Jon is also pretty successful at what he does. He is a former pro-surfer and one of the best shapers, who owns the surf board company named â€œLaLaâ€.
Our condolences to the LaLanne family. R.I.P. Jack LaLanne.
