This is SO tragic!

John Henson, Muppets puppeteer and son of Jim and Jane Henson, passed away on Friday after suffering a massive heart attack. And on Valentine’s day, of all days!

The puppeteer’s family let people know on Facebook, telling their fans:

“It is with great sadness that we confirm that John Henson, son of Jim and Jane Henson and brother to Lisa, Cheryl, Brian and Heather, died at age 48 of a sudden massive heart attack on Friday, February 14, while at home with his daughter. John served as a shareholder and board member of The Jim Henson Company. He leaves two daughters, Katrina (15) and Sydney (10) and his wife Gyongyi. A private service is being planned.”

Ugh! Just completely tragic! He was so young!

Our thoughts are with John’s family and friends!
