Jason Davis, Voice Actor on Disney Channel’s ‘Recess,’ Dies at 35

https://www.msn.com/en-us/tv/news/jason ... BBYVH7A|14

"Jason Davis, a voice actor on the Disney Channel show “Recess,” died in Los Angeles on Sunday. He was 35.

Davis appeared in a few movies as a kid, including “Rush Hour,” “Beverly Hills Ninja” and “Mafia!” He voiced the character Mikey Blumberg on Disney Channel’s animated series “Recess” through its six seasons on air from 1997-2001. He also lent his voice to the character in several spinoff movies.

Before his death, he had been working on a TV show called “The Two Jasons.”

Davis was the co-founder of Cure Addiction Now and for the past one-and-a-half years, he dedicated himself to the organization, which helps fund research for people suffering from substance abuse.

Davis is one of five children and a grandson to Barbara and Marvin Davis, a former industrialist and owner of 20th Century Fox."
