Metalocalypse director in critical condition

Jon Schnepp, who served as the primary director of adult animated television series Metalocalypse, is currently in a California hospital battling a serious, albeit undisclosed, illness. On July 9, Schnepp tweeted that he was "recovering from being super sick this past week" and then revealed on July 13 that he was "going to be hospitalized for the next few days." Schnepp apparently took a turn for the worse soon thereafter, as that same day his girlfriend, Holly, stated that he was "in critical condition." The following day, a GoFundMe campaign was launched on his behalf by Holly, who provided the following details:
"Friends, Jon Schnepp is unconscious and in critical condition. I cannot tell you the details, but it is life-threatening. That's all I can tell you right now. I have been sharing with him how much all of you are rallying for him, and showing your incredible love and support. I've been sitting vigilantly beside him and whispering 'I love you Chimpnugget' over and over again in his ear, resting my head on his huge chest. This is the most challenging experience of my life, but knowing he is so loved helps heal my fractured heart. All of your well wishes have not gone unnoticed. If you can contribute anything to his medical bills, that will help us both. Much love to all of you."
In addition to helping design the Metalocalypse characters, Schnepp directed episodes during all four of the show's seasons. Schnepp has also worked on various other projects, providing a slew of services, including producer, director, voice actor, write, animator, and cinematographer. He is 51.
