Aside from his role on The Goldbergs, O'Dell also has guest roles on iCarly, Modern Family and Arrested Development. Our wish is that the rest of the world does as well.

The message indicated that there would be no additional statements as the family tries "to make sense of our immeasurable loss privately". He had been involved in show business from the age of 12.

Odell was also a singer-songwriter and wrote the soundtrack for the 2018 film Forever My Girl.

Jackson often posted covers of hit songs to his YouTube account.
