Muppeteer Jerry Nelson, The Count, Dead at 78

A Jim Henson hire


On the night of August 23, friends and colleagues of beloved veteran Muppeteer Jerry Nelson posted the news on Facebook that Jerry had passed away.  The news is not a complete surprise, as Jerry's health had been declining in recent years. But when a man whose work has meant so much to so many people passes on, it's impossible not to feel shock.
