Orange Is the New Black creator Jenji Kohan has released pictures of her son who died on New Year’s Eve.

The 50-year-old published multiple images of her late son who was killed in a tragic skiing accident in Park City, Utah.

She wrote, “He was my best work. A list of adjectives don’t do him justice. There is no justice. I am the luckiest person who ever lived in that I got to spend so much time and help grow this brilliant, funny, truly kind and thoughtful person-man-boy.

My baby. My golden child. My beautiful boy. I don’t understand what life is now without him in the world. I don’t understand where he’s gone. And I’m broken. How is this real?”



In a joint statement, Kohan and her ex-husband, Christopher Noxon, said, “Our hearts are shattered. Our dear boy Charlie Noxon died on New Year’s Even on a ski slope in Park City. The cliches about moments like this are true, it turns out.

The one about life forever changing in a split second, about the fact that we are all bound up in a web of love and loss, about the primacy of community in times of unfathomable tragedy.”

According to emergency services that attended the scene of the accident, Charlie was skiing down an intermediate trail when he struct a sign while attempting to navigate a fork in the trail. He was later pronounced dead after Park City ski patrol responded.

Rest in Peace.
