Best known for his role as Ari Caldwell on eight episodes of The Goldbergs, Odell also appeared on episodes of Modern Family, The Fosters and Nickelodeon’s iCarly.
Over the past couple years, Odell had transitioned from acting into the music, having penned numerous tracks for the soundtrack of the 2018 movie Forever Your Girl, including the Lauren Alaina hit, “Wings of an Angel.”
He will always be a shining light and a brilliant, loving and talented soul. He had so much more to share. Our family will always carry that truth forward.
Along with his loved ones, Modern Family actress Ariel Winter also left a note that has left the Internet in tears.
I knew Jackson since we were 12 years old, and he even appeared in an episode of Modern Family. We didn’t talk much as we entered our high school years, but I’m glad I got to spend time with him before his end.
You can see the note for yourself here:
Odell’s cause of death is yet to be determined.
We expect to know more this week after an autopsy is performed and the results are made public.
It followed the suicide of designer Kate Spade at age 55 and the suicide of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain at age 55.
We’ll continue to follow the details as they relate to all of these deaths and we’ll continue to keep readers up to speed regarding the latest.
