Singer Sean Levert dies in Jail at 39

Sean Levert (September 28, 1968 – March 30, 2008).

I grew up in the 80’s and I was a DJ at that time. I vaguely remember the name Levert (singing group). And I absolutely don’t remember a single song from them. His father was a member of O’Jays.

Levert died at Cleveland hospital March 30, less than an hour after he was taken there from jail. We don’t know the cause of his sudden death. Searn Levert was 39 years old at the time of his death.

Levert had been in the jail since March 24 (6 days earlier) awaiting transfer to a state prison for being $80,000 behind in child support payments.
