Songwriter and actor Jackson Odell died on Friday at the age of 20.

Two sources have confirmed that he was at a sober living house called Stellar House. One of those sources claims that he did overdose at the house, and it was heroin. 

Jackson was best known for his roles on ABC’s The Goldbergs and teen movie Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer. He also wrote several songs for the soundtrack of the 2018 movie Forever My Girl.

Actress Ariel Winter shared her condolences about his passing on her Instagram Sunday afternoon, saying, “Devastated to hear about the passing of Jackson Odell.  I knew Jackson since we were 12 years old, and he even appeared in an episode of Modern Family. We didn’t talk much as we entered into our high school years, but I’m glad I got to spend time with him before his end. Very hard for me to hear about anyone passing away, but someone so young really saddens me. Sending love to his friends and family.”
