"Jackass" star and wrestler Stevie Lee has died at the age of 54.

Family members shared the news on a GoFundMe page, which revealed that Lee died unexpectedly Wednesday morning. No cause of death was disclosed.

"He was beloved by many and has many friends that were family, fans that adored him," the page read.

Lee is known for his appearance in the film "Jackass 3D" as well as for his roles in TV shows including "American Horror Story" and "Oz the Great and Powerful," according to Deadline. He also wrestled under the name of "Puppet the Psycho Dwarf" and in 2002 appeared in the pay-per-view series "NWA: Total Nonstop Action." Lee went on to create the Half Pint Brawlers, which led to the 2010 reality series "Half Pint Brawlers" on Spike TV.

"Puppet has put smiles across the world with his hardcore attitude and lifestyle," his family wrote in a statement shared to the GoFundMe page. "He is a legend in the art of Midget Wrestling," it concluded. "He needs our help to give him one last curtain call.”

Impact Wrestling took to social media to pay tribute to the star.

"It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of Stevie Lee, better known as 'Puppet the Psycho Dwarf' in the early days of TNA," the organization wrote on Twitter. "We send our deepest condolences to his friends and family."

Pro wrestler Frankie Kazarian also honored Lee's memory on Twitter.

"RIP Stevie Lee aka Puppet the Psycho Dwarf," he wrote. "I’ll never forget the crazy tour of the UK we shared and the fun we all had. Godspeed my friend."
