Losing a child has to be the most heartbreaking experience for a parent, and “General Hospital” stars Jack Wagner and Kristina Wagner know it.
Jack and Kristina Wagner were so famous in the 1980s and 1990s that they became one of Hollywood’s most influential couples when they married in 1993.
Playing lovers Frisco Jones and Felicia Cummins in “General Hospital” helped catapult their relationship with mainstream media. Before divorcing in 2006, they welcomed sons Peter and Harrison. Sadly, Harrison passed away.

HARRISON WAGNER HAS HAD PREVIOUS STRUGGLES
On June 6, 2022, the body of Harrison Wagner was found in a parking lot in Los Angeles, California. He was only 27 years old. Neither the Wagner family nor authorities have released Harrison’s cause of death.
It’s vital to point out that Harrison’s life was no walk in the park as he struggled with addiction for years. The late actor, music producer and DJ even disappeared in 2016.

Jack took to Twitter on July 11, 2016 to share how worried he was about Harrison. The ‘General Hospital’ star revealed his son struggled with drug addiction like he did when he was younger, relapsed and disappeared.
Harrison eventually contacted his parents as Jack wrote in a follow-up tweet that his son had been in contact with them. He added that Harrison was 21 and in control of his life.
Fortunately, Harrison noticed how much his family loved him while he was alive. He publicly thanked Jack and his older brother, Peter, for supporting him “through thick and thin”.
Harrison’s Instagram account has several photos and videos with his family, so it’s fair to say they smoothed things over after they went missing.
WHO WAS HARRISON WAGNER?
Born on December 1, 1994, Harrison was the youngest son of Kristina and Jack Wagner. He also had an older sister, Kerry, conceived during a one-night stand Jack had with an unnamed woman in the late 1980s.
Although Harrison’s parents are soap opera stars, they shielded their family from the media and few details of Harrison’s personal life are available.
Mac Miller’s death was a wake-up call for people struggling with and suffering from the “disease” of addiction.
Kristina Wagner’s late son often shared how much he wanted to change his life on social media. The caption of his last Instagram post (May 22, 2022) read:
“Focus. YOU stay with YOU and your thoughts.”
Judging by Harrison’s Instagram account, he enjoyed working out, hanging out with friends, hiking and walking his dogs. His social media accounts also proved that Harrison was a fan of Mac Miller.
HARRISON HAD A WAKE UP CALL
On September 7, 2018, Mac Miller died of an accidental drug overdose. A day later, Harrison posted on Instagram and Twitter on the rapper’s death.
Harrison described Mac Miller as one of his favorite artists and pointed out the existence of several celebrities who had never dealt with their addiction.
He wrote that Mac Miller’s death was a wake-up call for people struggling with and suffering from “the disease” of addiction. Harrison also shared his public condolences following the deaths of Avicii and DMX. Rest in peace.
