My heart and prayers goes out to all of Austin's family and friends. I feel so blessed to have meet him and be able to call him my friend. Rest In Peace my friend! Evans’ longtime publicist and friend Howie Simon also stated on Facebook: My longtime friend, client and colleague Judi Evans Luciano called me Saturday and gave me some heartbreaking news that her 23 year old son Austin Michael Luciano had passed away Friday. Cause unknown. I’ve known Austin since he was just a little boy. He would always accompany his mom Judi (Days of our Lives) on many red carpet events and charity functions. He was always the “plus one” to his mama but he was the one shining on the carpet. He especially loved the ESPY after Party I would help coordinate with Celebrity Sweat the last 7 years and he’s always have the chance to meet his favorite MLB, NBA, WWE or NFL celebrity! He was always grateful and his smile was his trademark and of course he shared his mother’s wicked sense of humor along with me.
