6'3" Matthew "Jett"
Schaefer was a great looking guy with a sad story. Practically the definition
of a man's man, Schaefer was a pilot, surfer and fitness model. He was
discovered by Versace and worked for Armani, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein and many
more major labels. He appeared as a model on the VH Fashion Awards show performing
live on stage and co-hosting part of the show. he also appeared in TV ads for McDonalds
and Dr. Pepper with LeAnn Rimes and Reba McEntire.|
Then he got cancer. Then
he beat cancer. Then it came back! He managed to beat it again but the chemotherapy
left him with no immune system and he died from a sinus infection. Sometimes I ask
guys if I can take their pictures and they say "No not yet I'm not perfect
yet." To which I respond "You'll never be perfect and what if you
die tomorrow?" Thank goodness Jett's photos will be on the net for a
long time and people will remember him because, someday, we will all just be old
pictures on the Internet. If we are lucky.
