American musician, lead singer of the boy band LFO, who produced their biggest hit "Summer Girls" in 1999. The group disbanded in 2002. In March 2005, Cronin sought treatment for constant headaches, and was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia. He underwent chemotherapy at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. By January 2006, his leukemia was in remission, but recurred in 2007.

On the afternoon of September 8, 2010, Cronin died at the Brigham and Women's Hospital after suffering a stroke secondary to his leukemia due to complications from medicine he was taking to offset GVHD (Graft-versus-host disease), which he had been struggling with since the transplant. He was 36 years old.
