Christopher, who is also known as Chris St. John, is a producer, director, screenwriter, and actor. He is best known for playing the role of Ben Buford in the 1971 film, Shaft. He is also well recognized for his roles in 1972 film, Top of the Heap, and in the television series, Remington Steele. His wife (Kristoff’s biological mother) is an entertainer. 

Kristoff St. John had not been the same since his son’s death

Originally from New York City, St. John turned 52 on July 15 last year. The last few years of life had been miserable for the actor after his son died by suicide in late 2014. 

Kristoff and his first wife Mia St. John's son, Julian, took his own life on November 23, 2014, following a long battle with mental illness. Julian was 24 years old at that time. He had been battling with drug addiction, along with schizophrenia. 

Soap Opera Digest editorial director told People of St. John, “He was able to overcome so many things, but the death of Julian was just a breaking point for him in a lot of ways.” The death of Julian had left Kristoff permanently damaged.

In 2017, the Y&R alum underwent psychiatric treatment after a major scare regarding his mental health. According to TMZ, he threatened to end his life with a gun, following which he was placed under 3 days hold for psychiatric evaluation.

Speaking of the incident to Entertainment Tonight, Mia said, “No parent should ever have to bury their child, and for those who do, it is a nightmare that haunts you forever. The death of our beloved son Julian has taken a toll on both of us.” 

She added, “He is an actor and while he may appear whole on the outside, his heart is broken. As a society, we need to start taking mental health seriously and realize that no one is immune.”

Kristoff, who had had an active life on social media, was inactive since late January. He was last active on Twitter on January 21, when he retweeted a heart-wrenching post which reads, “Grieving the loss of a child is a process. It begins on the day your child passes, and ends the day the parent joins them.”

While friends and families of Kristoff were aware of the impact Julian’s death had caused on his life, nobody expected his life to end this way. The actor had been drinking quite a lot during his later days.
