CpsFlowExecution error occurs and afterwards Jenkins will not start

I am seeing this error pop up in my log - several of them actually. I don’t know if it’s related, but after I close and re-open Jenkins it will not start. Anyone know what causes this? I looked online but didn’t find any answers…

The only JIRA issue I found that looks more or less like yours is this one: Issue Navigator - Jenkins Jira

yeah I saw that - doesn’t seem like there is a clear cause or solution
