R.I.P. ‘Jet Set’ Hudson

Wednesday, December 19 by

The Florida Sentinel has announced the sad news that Jessie “Jet Set” Hudson, a beloved supporting character on the Comedy Central series Workaholics, has passed away from complications of not being able to be alive anymore. Which we can all agree is one of the worst ways to go out.

According to family members, Jet Set, who lived in Pasadena, California, stopped by a convenience store close to midnight on December 13th.

His sister, Shirley Coleman, said Jet Set went into the store and purchased an Alka Seltzer, a bottle of water, and some milk.

“The clerk in the store said he was sweating really bad, and was in a hurry.

“The clerk said he paid for the items with a $20, and ran out to his car before receiving his change. When the clerk ran out to his car to give him his change, he found Jessie B. slumped to one side inside his car.”

Ms. Coleman said when paramedics arrived on the scene minutes later, he was pronounced dead. Preliminary indications are Jet Set died of a heart attack. (Via)

What makes this news especially sad is this is how we all found out his real name was Jet Set. I’d imagined that was something the Workaholics writers came up with. But no, what happened was they met a guy named Jet Set, decided that’s pretty awesome, and then just hired him because of his ridiculously awesome personality. Jet Set will truly be missed. He is previously deceased by Home Girl. (via Warming Glow)
