Jed Johnson's Death: How Did Jed Johnson Die?

After breaking ties with Andy Warhol, Jed Johnson discovered love in his companion Alan Wanzenberg, with whom he started living in his new flat on New York City's 67th West Street.

The duo founded their design firm, Johnson and Wanzenberg, in 1982 and quickly rose to prominence in the realm of architectural design. They were soon allowed to work on key attributes for renowned celebrities due to their hard work and sense of taste.

The Johnson and Wanzenberg firm was separated into Alan Wanzenberg Architect P.C. and Jed Johnson Associates half a decade later. Despite Jed and Alan's forays into their respective professions, their domestic life with their dog Gus stayed idyllic.

They also bought two homes on Fire Island. Despite the fact that Warhol penned Jed out of his will in 1982, the latter remained involved with the artist's oeuvre by joining the Andy Warhol Art Authentication Board in 1995.

Jed Johnson, 47, died on 17th July 1996, as one of 229 passengers on TWA Flight 800, which crashed off the coast of Long Island, New York. The blast was most likely caused by a fault current in the fuel tank.

Jed was a first-class customer, thus his body was unharmed by the exploding craft and was recovered from the ocean a few days later.

Jed was elected into the Hall of Fame of Interior Design Magazine in 1996 for his contributions to the field of design and building. His brother Jay and his colleague Tom Cashin later took over his firm.

Jay extended the firm in 2006 by launching Jed Johnson Home, which specializes in luxury fabrics for home interiors. Jed is still regarded as one of the most innovative artists in the world of interior design.

The Andy Warhol Diaries is currently streaming on Netflix.
