LAKEWOOD, WA – Aaron Grissom, a Tacoma native and former “Top Chef” contestant who appeared on the series’ 12th season, died in a motorcycle accident near Chambers Bay last Thursday, according to a story in the Seattle Times. He was 34 years old.
Grissom was the head chef at Bow & Truss in North Hollywood, and placed 11th in “Top Chef: Boston.” The Tacoma News Tribune reports that he had been cooking at restaurants around his native Tacoma after a stint as a personal chef to celebrities including Billie Eilish, which had ended because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The crash that killed Grissom has been ruled an accident.
