Following the news breaking of Jackson’s death, his family released a statement on his Twitter page that read: ‘The Odell family has lost our beloved son and brother, Jackson Odell, on Friday. 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 and loved him does as well. We are now going to try to make sense of our immeasurable loss privately. We will not be making anymore statements.’

Among those paying their respects for the star following his untimely death was Modern Family star Ariel Winter – who had been friends with the star from a young age.

‘We didn’t talk much as we entered into our high school years, but I’m glad I got to spend some time with him before his end,’ she wrote.

She added: ‘Very hard for me to hear about anyone passing away, but someone so young really saddens me. Sending love to his family and friends.’
