It was apparent that Charlie needed help and a helicopter took him to a nearby hospital. “After further emergency care and evaluation” Charlie was pronounced dead. Aside from Charlie’s fall on the slopes there’s been no more information regarding the reason for his death. 

“Charlie was brilliant, kind, funny, sensitive and loving,” his father, Christopher, told CNN. “He was keenly interested in and deeply curious about the world around him from the time he was a small child. People describe people as brilliant — but Charlie was truly brilliant.”

“We will miss his sweet smile, piercing questions, and big heart. We already do.”

Charlie once starred in an episode Weeds in 2008. Recent Instagram shares by Jenji show that she moved her son into his dorm at University just this past September.
