As great as Blake, Adam, and Anders are on Comedy Central’s Workaholics, the show could do an entire season focused only on their TelAmeriCorp co-workers, like Alice, Waymond, and Montez, and it’d still be tight butthole. Sadly, though, the actor who played one of the series’ funniest recurring characters, Jessie “Jet Set” Hudson, passed away last week from a heart attack. According to the Florida Sentinel:
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)
His IMDb only lists three non-Workaholics roles — as Barbershop Employee on New Girl, “Man” on Key & Peele, and “The Crackhead” in No Beers for Bradley — but Hudson should have gotten ALL the parts. His name was Jet Set. Jet. Set. That’s awesome. Your lewd asides and arm wrestling matches will be missed, Mr. Set.
Here’s hoping God’s sucking your d*ck in Heaven.
