No official cause of death has been determined at this time.

The family has released funeral arrangements and a statement about the loss:

Our hearts are broken over this tragic loss. Jacob was a beloved son, brother, uncle, and partner to his wife, Brenda. He valued his family, friendships, and living life to the fullest, which was evident in his songwriting. Every person who knew him has a story of his wit, charm, talent, and compassion. We are so grateful for the outpouring of support and the many beautiful tributes that have been shared about the impact Jacob had on many lives. While we grieve what we know could have been, we're grateful that his talent and love live on in his songs.

Flint was born and raised in Holdenville, located in southeastern Oklahoma.

He began playing music after his father was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Flint started writing his own songs at a young age ad went on to record his first studio album "I'm Not Okay" in 2016.

In 2017, Flint signed for management representation with a veteran music industry professional, Brenda Cline.

Jake Flint was a rising star,” states manager, Brenda Cline. “Not only did he possess amazing talent, he possessed qualities even more important than talent. Jake’s attitude, enthusiasm, drive, and work ethic set him apart. He had a humble personality, lovable nature, and the ability to keep you laughing till your sides hurt. When you met Jake you immediately loved him and knew you had just met a friend for life. I can't imagine a world without Jake Flint.
I first met Jake when he came for a radio visit about six years ago,” says Jim Nash, on-air personality, Shooter FM/Waco, TX. “I knew instantly that he was a good soul. He was always funny and had a smile on his face. He performed several live shows for us, and he was always the life of the show. His contribution to the Texas/Red Dirt scene will be sorely missed. RIP Brother.
Jake Flint was a true Ambassador of the Oklahoma and Texas Red Dirt music scene,” Doyal states. “He was not only a prolific songwriter, recording artist, and in-demand live performer, but he was also a tireless supporter of other talents throughout the region, always willing to lend a hand to help anyone who needed it. With his infectious smile and disarming sense of humor, he was loved by many, and I believe that, along with his music, will be his lasting legacy.
