Jackson Odell, a teen actor and songwriter known for appearances on hit shows like "The Goldbergs" (2013-2015) and "Modern Family" (2010 and 2012) has died at age 20, TMZ reports.

Odell, who played Zeke in the family movie "Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer" (2011), was found unresponsive Friday in a sober living facility in California's San Fernando Valley.

Odell's family released a statement which read, "The Odell family has lost our beloved son and brother, Jackson Odell. 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 does as well. We are now going to try to make sense of our immeasurable loss privately."
