'OITNB' Creator Jenji Kohan Breaks Silence After Son's Death

Jenji Kohan is speaking out after her son Charlie Noxon‘s tragic death.

The 50-year-old Orange Is the New Black creator’s son passed away at age 20 following a skiing accident on Tuesday (December 31) in Park City, Utah.

“Our hearts are shattered,” Jenji and Charlie’s father, Christoper Noxon, told TMZ. “The cliches about moments like this are true, it turns out. The one about life forever changing in a split second, about the fact that we are all bound up in a web of love and loss, about the primacy of community in times of unfathomable tragedy.”

TMZ reports that Charlie – wearing a helmet and skiing by himself – crashed into a sign while navigating an intermediate-level trail.

Our thoughts continue to be with Jenji Johan and Charlie Noxon‘s loved ones during this difficult time.
