James Redford, also known as Jamie, has passed away. He was 58.

The son of Robert Redford was known for his work as a filmmaker, environmental activist and philanthropist.

His wife, Kyle Redford, confirmed the news in a tweet, writing: “Jamie died today. We’re heartbroken. He lived a beautiful, impactful life & was loved by many. He will be deeply missed. As his wife of 32 yrs, I’m most grateful for the two spectacular children we raised together. I don’t know what we would’ve done w/o them over the past 2yrs.”

The Salt Lake Tribune report that Redford died from bile-duct cancer in his liver. The cancer was reportedly discovered in his bile duct last November as he was awaiting a liver transplant.

James Redford is survived by his wife, Kyle; two children, Dylan and Lena; his parents, Robert Redford and Lola Van Wagenen; his stepmother, Sibylle Szaggars Redford; and his sisters, Shauna Redford Schlosser and Amy Redford.
