Aron Eisenberg dead at 50

Aron Eisenberg has passed away. The cause of death has not been released. Eisenberg, 50, was perhaps best known as Nog on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine from 1993 through 1999. Eisenberg’s wife, Malíssa Longo, announced his death on Facebook on September 21.

Eisenberg, who was born with only a single kidney, battled health problems throughout his life and was twice the recipient of a kidney transplant. Eisenberg underwent his last transplant on December 29, 2015, after a friend saw his post about needing a new kidney on Facebook.

There has been an outpouring of support and sympathy for Eisenberg’s family on social media, from both fans and fellow Star Trek alumni alike. Eisenberg was active on Facebook and Twitter, where a GoFundMe campaign helped raise the funds necessary to pay for his last kidney transplant surgery. A new GoFundMe has been set up to help cover funeral expenses.
