We at Models.com and the rest of the fashion industry were shocked and saddened to hear about the untimely death of Dmitriy Tanner. His work as a model was of the highest caliber but they were dwarfed by his contributions to his community as a loving son, husband, brother and to his country as a U.S Marine.
Jason Kanner, from his NY agency Soul Artist Management says: “Dmitriy was the first guy that we signed when I opened Soul. He was a gentle and sweet young man with impeccable manners. We will miss him and never forget him.”
Our deepest condolences to the Tanner family and all those who were touched by Dmitriy during his too brief time with us. The official family statement is below.
