The Oklahoman reported that Flint's publicist Clif Doyal confirmed to the outlet that the man had passed in his sleep after the wedding.
"He was not only a client, he was a dear friend and just a super nice guy. As you can see from the outpouring on social media, he was loved by everybody. I think a lot of it was just that he was a people person, and he had an amazing sense of humor. He made everybody laugh, and he made everybody feel welcome," Doyal noted, according to the outlet. "He was an ambassador for Oklahoma Red Dirt music."
"It's a loss ... to many — and we're still just reeling in the shock and disbelief of this," Brenda Cline said, according to the Oklahoman, which identified the woman as the musician's business adviser, former manager, and partner in a planned business endeavor. "We've all lost friends, we've all lost family members, it's life. But I don't think I've ever experienced such a shocking set of circumstances with losing someone and how cruel this for Brenda, his wife. To become a bride and a widow in just a few hours is unfathomable. I just can't imagine what she's going through."
"Oh my gosh, he was adored and loved by everybody. Jake didn't have an enemy in the world. He was willing to do anything for anybody ... and he had a very good business mind. There's only one Jake Flint," Cline said.
