Jan Fedder Krankheit –Fedder grew up in Hamburg-St. Pauli as the son of Kneipenbesitzer Adolf Fedder and his wife Gisela, who worked as a dancer. The parents’ favourite hangout, “Zur Überseebrücke,” was located just next to the Hamburger Hafen. Oliver, his half-brother, is seven years older than he is. Jan Fedder completed a training programme to become a Speditionskaufmann, although he never pursued this career path.
Fedder was a Knabensopran in the Hamburger Michel Chor for seven years, and he was the youngest member of the choir. Vor dem Beginn seiner Schauspielausbildung, which he started at the age of ten, he studied ballet for a number of years before switching to the theatre industry later in life.
He appeared on stage and in front of the camera for the first time when he was 13 years old (for the television series Reisedienst Schwalbe). He worked as a child and adolescent actor at the Klecks Children’s and Youth Theater on Hamburg’s Großneumarkt for 19 years, and he also appeared in Shakespeare and Goethe productions at the Ernst-Deutsch-Theater.
As a “Bootschafter” with the Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Rettung Schiffbrüchiger, Fedder has worked for the organisation since 2007.
He had a residence in Hamburg-St. Pauli, and he also spent time in his spare time at a farm in Ecklak, in the Kreis Steinburg, which he had restored since 1997. He was married and had two children. The couple, Fedder and his wife Marion, have been married since 2000.
Numerous people came to pay their respects to him on the occasion of his funeral service. He was found dead in his own home, though, rather than in a hospital bed. It is particularly distressing in this case as his wife Marion (53) was unable to be present at his death.
Following reports from Bunte, the couple is expected to have been living apart for some time already, according to Bunte. Jan Fedder is rumoured to have purchased a house in St. Pauli, which was previously owned by his parents, several years ago. According to Bunte, Ehefrau Marion is accustomed to living in a penthouse in the vicinity of Hamburg’s outer harbour.
Further, according to the newspaper, it had previously been the greatest concern of the actors that they would be put on the spot. As a result, he was unable to prevent his cancer from spreading to his beloved Ehefrau. However, she is expected to have organised his life, visited him, and cared for him in a loving manner in the future.
Fedder has a great deal to thank the NDR for. “The audience members, both female and male, adored him. The death of this one-of-a-kind actor has left a huge void in the world of theatre.” Fedders Frau’s face fell as he pressed his mitgefühl against hers. Fedder has been married to his wife Marion since the year 2000. They have two children.
He had received 30 Bestrahlungen as a result of a Mundhöhlen-Karzinom. “That was the most difficult period of my life since I had completely lost my ability to function. I was unable to remove the telephone headset for the remainder of the day “, Fedder stated in an interview conducted in the summer of 2018.
However, it is not only the cancer that contributes to the creation of the television legend: Fedder stürzte several times, bruising both beines, the Hüfte, and the Kniescheiben in the process. Infections made the healing process more difficult. According to the “Bild,” the actor spent the better part of 2017 recuperating at a rehabilitation centre.
