The authorities will investigate the cause of his death. Tributes quickly poured in on Twitter, where actor Paulo Avelino wrote, “RIP, Jamir.”

Musician Monty Macalino said, “Live forever, Jamir Garcia.”

“We need to appreciate our musicians now more than ever, especially this time where live music doesn’t exist and can’t guide our hearts to find the right beat. Live forever, Jamir,” photographer Niña Sandejas tweeted.
