Jerry Finn (March 31, 1969 - August 21, 2008) was an American record producer. He was perhaps best known for his work with Blink-182, as well as Morrissey, AFI, Bad Religion, Alkaline Trio, MxPx, Rancid, Green Day, Sum 41 and The Offspring.[2][3]

After suffering a cerebral hemorrhage in July 2008, Finn was taken off life support on August 9, 2008 after never regaining consciousness.[4] Finn died August 21, 2008.[1] At the time of his hemorrhage, he had just finished producing Morrissey's new record, Years of Refusal.[5]

On his personal blog Mark Hoppus recalls

I’m sitting here now and I don’t even know what to type. I’m at a loss for words. Nothing I can say will come close to describing what an amazing human being Jerry was. His talent, his laughter, his love of life. Every day I spent with Jerry over the past ten years I feel like he taught me something new about music, or recording, or life. I think everyone who knew Jerry would say the same thing. I feel blessed to have worked with and learned so much from him, but most of all I am honored to call him my dear friend. Jerry, I miss you already.

Mark Hoppus[6]

In an interview on Xfm on 13 February, 2009, Morrissey said:

His death was astonishing because it was very quick. He had a massive brain hemorrhage followed by a massive heart attack, and he was 39 years old. It was very sad because a few weeks earlier to this we were at his house, listening to the playback [of Years of Refusal] and everyone was very happy. And suddenly he had the brain hemorrhage. I was with him for the last few weeks of his life and it was terribly sad. But the lesson for all of us is that this doesn't last forever.
