The cast and crew of Workaholics are mourning one of their own.

Jesse Hudson, who played the always snazzily dressed Jet Set Hudson on the raunchy Comedy Central sitcom, died last week, E! News has confirmed. He was 59.

"I'm very sad to report that we've lost a member of the Workaholics family," read a post 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.

"Rest in peace, Jet Set," the post concluded. "I can not put into words how wonderful it was to work with and get to know you over the last three years."

"Jet Set really passed away. It's not a joke. Very real. I'm more than butt hurt, I'm legitimately sad," Workaholics star Adam DeVine tweeted, name-checking one of the series' inside jokes.

Tweeted costar Blake Anderson: "Damn. Sad day. RIP JETSET a true entertainer. Gonna miss that man. Much Love."
