Tampa, Fla. — One of the nation’s most popular sex workers and fetish models has tragically died.
Alexis Grace, 27, was found dead by her fiancé, Jon Weld, when he left to take his car to a shop for regular maintenance. Hillsborough County EMTs were called to their residence.
Ms. Grace had been dealing with asthma attacks and other respiratory conditions and had a trying time breathing normally recently.
“She was trying to keep it under control,” a bereaved Mr. Weld told AVN. He told the adult industry media outlet that it was probable that Ms. Grace had a final asthma attack.
A few weeks ago, Ms. Grace was on the other end of Interstate 275 at the Fetish Con on the other side of the Bay in Saint Petersburg. It was there she announced she was increasing her workload again. She had plans to visit other places in the continental US for fetish sessions, including Columbia; Charleston; Savannah and Augusta, Ga.
“Everyone’s in complete shock and devastated right now. She was just at Fetish Con as lively as can be getting ready to make her comeback,” said Mr. Weld. “She shot at Fetish Con; she was talking to producers.”
She was still actively doing fetish clips but she was only doing our site and her site. She was planning on going to AVN this year and talking with a few agents out there.”
The last time Ms. Grace shot for mainstream pornography producers was in early 2015. The couple co-produced Bratty Babes Own You, one of the many stores on the popular site clips4sale.com. Bratty Babes Own You sold videos of pantyhose, smelly feet fetishes, foot domination, even cock-and-ball torture and ballbusting among other fetishes.
In addition to clips4sale, Ms. Grace performed for Brazzers, Bang Bros, Reality Kings, Hustler, Evil Angel, Lethal Hardcore, Amateur Allure, FM Concepts and Wicked Pictures.
The couple were engaged to be married in early 2018. They lived together ever since Ms. Grace moved from her birth place of Los Angeles County to Tampa.
Mr. Weld continued, “She was a really kind-hearted person. She loved normal stuff outside the business. She was a great person, a loving person, a giving person. She loved her dog. We planned on moving to Los Angeles next year. If a homeless person was on the sidewalk she’d give him 20 dollars out of her pocket. That’s the kind of person she was.”
She loved her fans and loved her work. She was a perfectionist who always wanted to look her best and perform her best. She cared about every person she ever worked with. Her colleagues loved her. I loved her. She was a caring, beautiful person inside and out who was never disrespectful to anyone.”
And she was at a really good spot in her life right now.”
Ms. Grace leaves behind a slew of people: from her aforementioned fiancé to maternal grandparents and paternal grandparents to the millions of fans in the continent who grieve her death.
