Yellowstone's Jennifer Landon Shares A Heartbreaking Message

The "Yellowstone" crew has suffered a tragic loss. Jennifer Landon, who plays the ranch hand Teeter on the show, recently took to Instagram to announce a crew member named Matthew Bulleri sadly died earlier this month. "We lost a great member of our Yellowstone Family," Landon captioned on a photo of Bulleri and his six-month old daughter. "Matt Bulleri died unexpectedly of a heart attack on Wednesday while shooting a show in Los Angeles."

Landon also included a link to a Gofundme for Bulleri's wife Alyssa and their daughter, seeking donations to help ease the difficult road ahead for the family. The fundraiser's organizer, Paul Merryman, described Matt Bulleri as "an amazing guy and the hardest working grip I know. He was more than a grip. He was an artist and loved making movies and TV shows. There was never a job too big or too small for him, and his work ethic was contagious. It's no surprise that directors and DPs sought him out frequently for their crews."

Matt Bulleri was an accomplished filmmaker and beloved friend

Bulleri's IMDb page is a testament to his skill as a filmmaker, with over 70 roles as a key grip, camera operator, best boy grip, and several other roles. His first production credit was as a camera operator on the 2007 film "Blood Ties." He went on to be part of the crew for tons of projects including "She's Out of My League," "Scream 4," "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," "Foxcatcher," "Silicon Valley," and many more. His most recent credits include the upcoming Jason Momoa drama "Sweet Girl," on which he worked as a key grip with the action unit.

Tons of tributes for Bulleri poured in both on social media and the Gofundme page for his family. 101 Studios, the production company behind "Yellowstone," made a donation to Bulleri's wife and daughter with the message "Our deepest condolences from the entire team at 101 Studios." 

Cinematographer Joe Grasso wrote, "Like a brutal gut-punch this one hurts profoundly and the pain lingers incessantly. Our first job together was 10+ years ago on The Umbrella Man. I didn't know what I was going to get when I met him, and he surpassed every expectation I had."

A celebration of life is scheduled for early August, and it's sure to be a loving reminder of how much Bulleri will be missed.
