Jim Henson’s wife and fellow puppeteer Jane Jenson has passed away.
The Muppets’ collaborator died at age 78 in her Connecticut home yesterday due to her battle with cancer.
She and her husband met in the mid-1950s at the University of Maryland and were partners throughout the development of The Muppets. The couple split in 1986. Jim passed in 1990. Both are survived by their five children: Lisa, Cheryl, Brian, John and Heather.

Seems a little strange for this to come from someone who's expecting a baby girl with a woman who has essentially branded and sold her entire existence to America, but he even acknowledges that himself, when he says:
