Details of Eisenberg’s death were not revealed. However, I n the post, Longo revealed that she and Eisenberg were married in 2018.

“We didn’t officially announce that we had eloped on December 28th, 2018. We were hoping to have a big shindig in celebration of our nuptials, but had to wait to save up the money. While, our marriage, on paper, was a short one. Our hearts had been married for far longer. I will be forever thankful for the time we had to love each other. Five years felt like a lifetime, in the best possible ways. There will never be another light like Aron’s. The beauty that he was and the legacy he leaves behind is beyond words. I love him dearly and will miss him eternally.”

In addition to Deep Space Nine, Eisenberg’s on-screen work included TV shows Tales from the Crypt, Parker Lewis Can’t Lose, The Wonder Years, and General Hospital. He also appeared in films including Puppet Master III, Streets, House 3 and The Liars’ Club. He most recently appeared in the Deep Space Nine documentary “What We Left Behind.”
