Jesse Jane – a pornographic movie star who also appeared in “Entourage” and “The Bad Girls Club” – died suddenly at age 43.

The porn star – whose real name was Cynthia Ann Howell– was found unresponsive around 11 a.m. on Wednesday at her home in Moore, Oklahoma. Jane’s boyfriend, Brett Hasenmueller, was also found unresponsive inside the residence after police officers responded to a welfare check.

Investigators said no foul play is suspected.

Lt. Francisco Franco of the Moore Police Department told the New York Times that investigators suspect the couple suddenly died from a drug overdose.



The sudden deaths remain under investigation and the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner will determine their causes of death.

Jane is survived by her son, who was reportedly born in 2000.

Jane, born in Fort Worth, Texas, was one of the most popular pornographic actresses of the early 2000s. She began her X-rated career in 2002, and her last adult movie was released in 2019.

Jane was best known for her appearance in the pornographic movie “Pirates,” which had a budget of $1 million, and “Pirates II: Stagnetti’s Revenge,” which was the most expensive porn movie ever made with a price tag of $8 million.

She briefly retired from the adult movie industry in 2007.

“I got into porn right at the perfect time when porn stars mattered. Porn stars back then, they were big, glamorous. You walked into a room, you turned heads,” Jane told GQ in a 2018 interview. “Everybody knew who you were because they had to buy your product or DVDs, everything. Porn was so naughty, but everybody watched it. Now, no one makes money like they did back then even with toy deals and appearances.”

Jane also enjoyed some mainstream entertainment success.

Jane appeared in the 2003 TV film “Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding,” which had a small part in the 2004 movie “Starsky and Hutch,” and was in 2009’s “Middle Men” starring Luke Wilson and Giovanni Ribisi.

Entertainment Weekly reported she appeared as herself on Showtime’s reality series “Family Business,” a 2005 episode of HBO’s hit TV series “Entourage,” Oxygen Network’s reality series “The Bad Girls Club,” “Gene Simmons Family Jewels,” and “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.” Jane was interviewed in the 2009 CNBC documentary “Porn: Business of Pleasure.”

Jane also hosted Playboy TV’s live series “Night Calls” from 2006 to 2007.

Before her porn career, she was a model for David’s Bridal and Hooters.

Brian Gross, a publicist for the porn industry, told the New York Times, “She was a performer during an era where adult films were seen all over the world, and the promotions were massive. She made sure that she gave her all, not only in performing but in promotion as well.”
