Jesse Hudson of "Workaholics"


Comedy Central series “Workaholics” lost one of their own last week with the passing of Jesse Hudson at the age of 59.

Hudson played the sharp-dressed Jet Set Hudson on the show, and had just finished production on season three of the series.

“I’m very sad to report that we’ve lost a member of the Workaholics family,” a post said on the show’s official Tumblr page. “Jet Set Hudson passed away late last week, after contributing some of the funniest, sweetest moments of our just wrapped season 3. Jet Set lit up every room he walked into; every set he was on, and truly touched every person who had the pleasure of meeting him. To say he will be missed is an understatement, to say he was loved can never be said enough.

The L.A. Department of Coroner told E! News that Hudson was found unresponsive in his car in the early morning hours of Dec. 14. Although paramedics were called to the scene, Hudson was pronounced dead at 12:42 a.m. The cause of death is currently deferred pending autopsy results.

Series stars Adam DeVine and Blake Anderson both tweeted their sorrow at his passing.

“Jet Set really passed away. It’s not a joke. Very real. I’m more than butt hurt, I’m legitimately sad,” DeVine wrote with a wink to one of series jokes.

“Damn. Sad day. RIP JETSET a true entertainer. Gonna miss that man. Much Love.” wrote Anderson.
