A Henson Legend Passes Away!


Looks like Jim Henson will find his rainbow connection in heaven as he will meet up with son John who passed away from a heart attack. The offspring of "The Muppets" creator was only 48 as listed on the Jim Henson Company Facebook page: "It is with great sadness that we confirm that John Henson, son of Jim and Jane Henson and brother to Lisa, Cheryl, Brian and Heather, died at age 48 of a sudden massive heart attack on Friday, February 14, while at home with his daughter." He followed in dad, Jim's footsteps by being a puppeteer and as the 9-foot-tall ogre Sweetums. Along with siblings, he leaves behind wife Gyongyi and two girls Katrina and Sydney, 15 and 10 respectively. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and fans during this very sad and trying time.
