Charles “Charlie” Noxon, the son of Emmy Award-winning TV producer Jenji Kohan (“Weeds,” “Orange is the New Black”), and writer and journalist Christopher Noxon, died from injuries sustained in a skiing accident in Utah on Dec. 31. He was 20.

Noxon was on a trip with family members, including his father. The Summit County Sheriff’s Office said Noxon was on an intermediate-level trail but authorities declined to cite the cause of the accident, according to The Hollywood Reporter. TMZ reported Noxon fell, then was flown via helicopter to a local hospital, where he later was pronounced dead.

IKAR, where Noxon became a bar mitzvah, emailed its congregants that Noxon, a Los Angeles native and graduate of Harvard-Westlake, was a junior at Columbia University in New York. He also appeared in an episode of “Weeds” in 2008. 

His parents, who divorced in 2019 after 21 years of marriage, told The Hollywood Reporter, “He was questioning, irreverent, curious and kind. Charlie had a beautiful life of study and argument and travel and food and razzing and adventure and sweetness and most of all love. We cannot conceive of life without him.”

His father also told TMZ, “Our hearts are shattered. The clichés 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.”

Noxon also is survived by his siblings Eliza and Oscar; grandparents; aunts, including TV producer and writer Marti Noxon (“Sharp Objects” and “Glee”); uncles, including writer and producer David Kohan (“Will & Grace”); and cousins.

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

Noxon’s funeral was held on Jan. 5 at Temple Israel of Hollywood and he was buried at Mount Sinai, Hollywood Hills.
