Jessie D of Force MD’s Has Passed Away

As confirmed by his management team, Force MD’s founding member, Jessie Lee Daniels, has died.

An official post on the group’s verified Facebook page made the announcement on Thursday. His cause of death has not been revealed.

“To one hell of a entertainer. ‘Jessie D’ of legendary Force MD’s,” the post read. “He ate, sleep [sic], and breathe music everyday. Please put a heart up for him. He was loved!!!!!!!!!!! To the family, friends, and fans today we lost a real talent. Our condolences go out to his siblings, kids, and the Force MDs….”

The pioneering Hip Hop/R&B group was formed in Staten Island, New York, in 1981. They created six timeless studio albums, with the last one released in 2000. With their New Jack-R&B sound, the group landed a deal with Tommy Boy records early in their career.

“My uncle Jessie Daniels was one of a kind… I am so crushed right now,” wrote one of Daniel’s family members on Facebook.

Hip Hop historian and Root drummer, Questlove, paid tribute to the singer on Instagram on Wednesday, writing: “Another legend enters his phase of musical ancestor. Rest eternally to #Jessie D of the #ForceMCs/#ForceMDs.”

Daniel’s was 58-years-old and is the fifth member to pass away from the group.

Charle’s “Mercury” Nelson died in 1995 from a heart attack. Antoine “TCD” Lundy died of Lou Gehrig’s disease in 1998, while Trisco Pearson died of cancer in 2016.

Their songs will forever be timeless hits, and Jessie’s spirit will live on forever.
