Talk about every father’s nightmare: as news of adult actress Jesse Jane’s death hits the headlines, another story has emerged— regarding how her military father was afraid that his troops would find out about his daughter’s sordid career.
43-year-old Jane and her boyfriend were found deceased in their Oklahoma home earlier this week reportedly of a drug overdose.
Law enforcement had conducted a welfare check on the home after the boyfriend had not reported to work.
Before she was Jesse Jane, she was Cindy Howell, the daughter of a US Air Force Airman.
In the early 2000s, when Howell expressed that she wanted to get into pornography, her father was worried that his fellow Airmen would find out.
“My dad was in the Air Force, so I was a military brat. I had a really good childhood,” Howell recounted in a previous interview. “I moved every two to three years, so it really helped me develop the ability to meet friends and not be shy. Every two years I had to move, so if I ever wanted friends when I lived there, I kind of had to be open and stuff.”
Despite being initially upset, Howell’s parents eventually warmed up to her job.
“The initial reaction was that they were upset,” she recalled. “My dad’s in the military, so half the guys watch porn. He didn’t necessarily want anybody looking at his daughter. My mom was upset, but they are completely supportive of my career now. They know I handle it as a career. I’m not all crazy and drugged out. I treat it like a business.”
Of course, this was before she was found dead due to a suspected drug overdose, a fate all too common for former adult performers.
In 2021, adult actress Dakota Skye also perished from a drug overdose. Similarly, Angelina Please fatally OD’d in 2022, and Sophie Anderson died in 2023.
These are but a handful of casualties that are so frequent in the adult industry, particularly as one’s career starts winding down.
According to the Daily Star, Cindy Howell last posted on social media 10 months ago, and her Instagram has since been flooded with condolences and messages of remembrance.
She is also remembered for her roles in the 2004 reboot of “Starsky and Hutch,” the HBO series “Entourage” and the Adam Sandler-produced 2011 movie “Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star.”
According to Rolling Stone, she briefly dated Kid Rock and appeared in the music video for Drowning Pool’s 2004 single “Step Up.”
