Jarry Juhl

The first employee hired by Jim Henson Jerry Juhl passed away from Cancer on Monday. He was originally hired to be the puppeteer who replaced Jim Henson's wife Jane Henson, but he soon became a writer for the studio. This is no small task for the Henson company was working on a lot of shows including the Muppet Show, Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, as well as the movies.I'm a huge puppets fan, this is a sad bit of news.

For more you can read this great writeup on filmforce, and there's the Henson's Official Announcement. I originally found this out at The Disney Blog.
