LAS VEGAS, NEVADA — Performer and physique model Brett Mycles has died. A retired Jet Set Exclusive and a popular member of the bodybuilding circuit, Mr. Mycles, whose real name was Rob Sager, apparently passed in his sleep Saturday, February 24 in Las Vegas. Fellow performer Zeb Atlas conveyed the news to agent David Forest, who notified the industry. The cause is said to be congestive heart failure.

Brett Mycles appeared in roughly six films in 2000 and 2001, as well several subsequent compilations. Some of those titles are COLLEGE JOCKS VOL. 2 (2001); JACKHAMMER (2001); PRIME CUT VIDEO MAGAZINE, VOLS. 5-6 (2000-01); STORM FIGHTER (2001); and WRESTLER FOR HIRE (2001). He is featured in 2003’s “The Jet Set Collection: Adam Gay Video Erotica” and appeared on the cover of numerous muscle/fitness magazines.

“It is our deepest sorrow to announce that one of the most outstanding and recognized models in the bodybuilding and fitness industry, Rob Sager, has passed away this weekend due to heart failure,” read a statement from photography studio Artuli Media. “We have had the pleasure and honor of working with Rob during his flourishing years and valued him not just as a model, but also as a good friend.”

On his blog, columnist Jason Sechrest of JasonCurious.com notes, “Everyone I’ve ever known to have worked with him has had nothing but wonderful things to day about him — a rarity in the porn world, as you can imagine. He was truly special. From his generosity and work ethic to his stunningly beautiful form, he was a favorite of both fans and industry insiders and will be incredibly missed.”

Hours after news of the death of Brett Mycles hit the industry came word that newcomer Lynden Thomas, 25, has died. He was just days away from filming his first movie for Falcon Studios. Chad Donovan relayed the news. The cause of death, per Mr. Donovan, was a “massive asthma attack.”

Mr. Thomas had previously shot CRUISEMASTER ROAD TRIP 8 for CruisingforSex.com. Director and webmaster Keith Griffith memorialized the young man on his blog this week. “To call the death of an otherwise healthy, sexy young man at the age of 24 a tragedy seems entirely appropriate. I can honestly say that Lynden was one of the smartest men I’ve met in this business. Driven to get ahead, curious about so much, exploring his sex in ways that seemed to even startle himself at times. You meet so many guys who are on this sexual journey for less than healthy reasons when you make porn, but Lynden was clear on this: he loved sex and he really loved the thought of sharing his sexuality with others.”

Lynden Thomas lived in Shady Grove, Maryland and operated his own popular escort site, RentLynden.com, which has been taken down. He lived a colorful life that included serving as pastor of The Secret Place Community Church. Mr. Thomas is survived by his parents, stepfather, two brothers and his life partner.

“I spoke to him over the weekend, just a few days ago,” Mr. Donovan said. “He told me how excited he was to be making his first movie. He was going to star in BIG DICK CLUB 2 and sign on as our newest exclusive.”

Our condolences to the family, friends and fans of Brett Mycles and Lynden Thomas.
