The 20-year-old, best known for his role as Ari Caldwell on ABC’s The Goldbergs, was found unresponsive in Tarzana, California.
“The Odell family has lost our beloved son and brother, Jackson Odell, on Friday,” his family said in a statement. “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.”
The actor’s career also included roles on Private Practice, Modern Family, iCarly and Arrested Development.
