SaNTA CLARA — Anthony John York, the son of the San Francisco 49ers owners and younger brother of team CEO Jed York, died Friday at the age of 35, according to a brief statement posted to the team’s website and social media Saturday afternoon.

“With deep sadness, we mourn the passing of our beloved son and brother, Tony. Although our hearts are quite heavy at this time, we have so many special memories shared with him to carry us forward,” according to the statement released Saturday. “Tony will forever be remembered as a bright, spirited entrepreneur with an unmatched passion to serve others who could brighten a room with his personality and sense of humor. Tony, we love you.”

Anthony York is the son of Denise DeBartolo York and John York, who own the football team. Jed York is three years older than his brother.

The statement did not give a cause of death.

Anthony York lived in Sausalito, and founded a Bay Area company, Koda, which focused on preparing young people for their first jobs after college, according to the statement.

He was born on August 3, 1983 in Youngstown, OH and attended Tulane University. He is survived by his parents, brother Jed, sisters Jenna and Mara, and nephews Jaxon and Brixton.

The team said York’s true passion was philanthropy.

“His compassion for others led him to support a number of non-profit efforts such as the 49ers Foundation and to work closely with incarcerated youth,” the team said. “Tony was a bright student and tremendous athlete, earning letters in football and baseball at Cardinal Mooney High School in Youngstown, whose calling cards were his infectious sense of humor and his kindness.”
