'Actor and singer-songwriter Jackson Odell has died, ET can confirm.
Odell is perhaps best known for playing Ari Caldwell on The Goldbergs. He was 20 years old.
According to Los Angeles County Coroner's Office records, Odell died on Friday at a sober living facility. According to TMZ, who was first to report the news, he was found unresponsive at a sober living facility, and that there were no signs of foul play.
Odell's family released a statement on Twitter on Sunday.
"The Odell family has lost our beloved son and brother, Jackson Odell, on Friday," the statement reads. "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. Our wish is that the rest of the world who knew him does as well. We are now going to try to make sense of our immeasurable loss privately. We will not be making any more statements."
