The spokesperson confirmed to CNN that Goins died in Colorado after being found unconscious on set by a crew member on Tuesday night.“We are sorry to hear this news. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, ”a statement from the network said.
Goins appeared on “Gold Rush: David Turin’s Lost Mine,” one of the shows that is part of Discovery’s hit “Gold Rush” franchise, where he worked as a gold room operator.
Nathan Clark, another cast member, remembered Goins in a Facebook post on Wednesday.
“I’m really lost for words right now. We have lost the man I trusted for my future and that of my child, ”he wrote. “Jesse Goins was the kindest soul you could ever meet. Jesse would give up his meal for the man next to him who wasn’t so hungry. It was that man.
Clark added, “He was friend and brother to me. I called him my little pixie because he still has that clean gold. I still love you Jesse! “
