John Henson Dead - Muppets Puppeteer Dies at Age 48

John Henson, Muppets puppeteer and son of the late Jim Henson, has died at the age of 48.

The puppeteer passed away on Friday (February 14) from a sudden heart attack.

“It is with great sadness that we confirm that John Henson… died at age 48 of a sudden massive heart attack… while at home with his daughter,” the Jim Henson Company said in a statement on Facebook.

They added, “John served as a shareholder and board member of The Jim Henson Company. He leaves two daughters, Katrina (15) and Sydney (10) and his wife Gyongyi. A private service is being planned.”

We send our thoughts and prayers to John‘s family and friends during this difficult time.

    Absolutely horrible. He was so young, and his young daughter witnessed it? She’ll never recover from that. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

    Polly Says:

    Damn, he used to live at a communal home in Saugerties, NY in the 1990s. Very uptight and suspicious of everyone. Why does he look so old in this photo? Very sad, and not right.

    Both John and his father brought so much joy into the lives of generations of children and adults. His memory will live on forever. RIP. So sad and yes, too young.

    Erin Says:

    @Klondiko: One of my parents died the same way and did not have an easy life. He could have had a virus that went undetected. There are a number of reasons. You’re not a doctor and you can’t diagnose how someone died through a Just Jared post. Have some respect or stay off this comment board.

    TK Says:

    @Klondiko: Wow, so rude. For all you know, he could have had a decaying tooth which will cause heart disease. Dying of a heart attack can be caused by a range of things that can be either really small and shocking or something obvious like a lot of stress and a poor diet, or high blood pressure. People who are poor, people who are rich, people who are stressed, people who are not stressed, people who don’t take care of their bodies and people who are seemingly totally healthy can all die from a heart attack. Your comment was so offensive. What if someone who knows John read this post and saw these comments? What did he ever do to you that would make you want to say something like that? You don’t know this man and therefore you can’t determine what would or should take him out of his life and lives of his children.
