Tv star Jesse 'jet Set' Hudson has died at the age of 59.

The actor passed away after reportedly suffering a heart attack outside a store in California last week (ends16Dec12).

Hudon recently made his name in U.S. Tv show Workaholics on the Comedy Central network.

A spokesperson for the channel says, "I'm very sad to report that we've lost a member of the Workaholics family. 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."
