Following his passing, Jackson’s family released a statement via his Twitter account.
They said: “The Odell family has lost our beloved son and brother, Jackson Odell, on Friday. 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.”

While it’s not known how Jackson died, US comedian Josh Wolf, whose son Jacob was best friends with the late star, has told how the actor was “not a sad kid”, and “loved his life”.
He said: “It is important people know this was not a sad kid.
“This is a young man who lost his life and the truth of the matter is that he was so ready to live, so it was a complete shock to all of us to find out he had passed.
“There was no part of Jackson that was suicidal and Jackson should not be lumped in with anyone that is suicidal, or that was looking for a way out.
