Public Memorial for Huntress Singer Jill Janus Planned at Hollywood's Rainbow Bar & Grill
Fans of late Jill Janus are invited to attend a public memorial on Friday (Aug. 24) at Hollywood's iconic Rainbow Bar & Grill to celebrate the life of the Huntress singer who died by suicide on Aug. 14 at the age of 43. Her partner Huntress guitarist Blake Meahl announced the event on Facebook, encouraging fans to "please join us to celebrate the life, art & magic we all shared with Jill."
The event is open to all and will run from 9 p.m. to the "witching hour." Meahl added, "Since Jill's departure, the amount of outreach and support from friends, fans and family has been absolutely incredible. It has been beyond heavy to see so many reminders of how she could be so talented and loved yet could feel so much pain and loneliness. Let's get together and celebrate her life and the importance that we still have each other. Expect a lot of whiskey and grown men crying."
After her death, Janus' family shared that the singer had suffered from mental illness and was an advocate for mental health issues, encouraging fans who are struggling or at risk of suicide to call 1-800-273-8255 to speak to someone at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
