LOS ANGELES, Feb. 15 (UPI) -- John Henson, the son of the late Muppets creator Jim Henson, has died of a heart attack, the family said Saturday. He was 48.

"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 ... while at home with his daughter," The Jim Henson Co. of Los Angeles said in a statement on its Facebook page.

John was a member of the company's board.

A private service was being planned, the statement from the family-run business said.

Jim Henson died in 1990 and Jane Henson passed away last April.
