Jason Davis who voiced the character of Michael ‘Mikey’ Blumberg on the Disney animated series Recess died Sunday at age 35 in Los Angeles, TMZ has confirmed.

‘I am so heartbroken to share the saddest news of my life that my son Jason Davis passed away this morning in Los Angeles. Jason had a true heart of gold with such a zest for life,’ his mother Nancy Davis said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

‘He was such a caring soul to everybody who ever knew him. He loved his friends and his family above all else. We ask for privacy as we take time to grieve this most devastating loss,’ the statement added.

Jason had struggled with addiction in the past, appearing on ‘Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew’ in 2010. Since then, however, he was said to have been working on his recovery and even co-founded a charity called Cure Addiction Now. He was heavily involved in running it.

When it comes to acting, Jason had starred in several other shows and movies besides ‘Recess’ — for which he served as the voice of Mikey since the ’90s and in pretty much all the spin-off movies that followed. He also made appearances in ‘7th Heaven,’ ‘Roseanne,’ ‘Dave’s World,’ ‘Beverly Hills Ninja,’ ‘Rush Hour,’ ‘Mafia!,’ ‘The Bathroom Diaries,’ ‘The Locusts,’ ‘The Crude Oasis’ and more.
