Hassall died at Parramatta on 28 August 1820, a victim with two of his grandchildren of the prevailing 'catarrhal fever' epidemic. He left farms totalling 3000 acres (1214 ha) around Parramatta, Dundas, Prospect, Mulgrave Place, Cook and Bringelly but, despite these interests, on which Crook had adversely commented in 1804, Hassall's life was said to have been a 'continued example of religion and piety, extensive benevolence and hospitality', and he had 'never lost sight of his original designation as a Missionary, and continued to the latest period of his life zealously to perform the duties of one, by preaching the Gospel in almost all parts of the colony'. His voluminous correspondence is one of the main sources for the early social history of New South Wales.

On 13 December, at his former property of Matavai, Jonathan's troubled life came to an end, when he apparently took his own life by drowning. The Sydney Gazette of 16 December recorded the events preceding his death, and the probability of his suicide:

"We regret to state that Mr. Jonathan Hassall of Matavia,[sic] Cowpastures, who has been in a deranged state of mind for the last three months, put a period to his existence on Saturday last. He left home early on the morning of that day with a determination, as he stated, of shooting some person who had offended him: but as he was in the habit of behaving in this strange manner, no particular notice was taken of his threat. However, he not returning at the usual hour, search was made, when his hat and stick were discovered floating in a lagoon near his farm. We had not heard of the body being discovered at the time we went to press."

At the time, Mary was pregnant with their eighth child. This infant, Elizabeth, was born in 1835, but only lived for six days.

Death July 6, 1835 (aged 30 years)
