Ben Unwin tragically passed away last week, aged 41.
In a statement, NSW Police said they were called to Minyon Galls in the Whian Whian State Conservation area, near Byron Bay, after locals "responded to a concern for welfare".
"The body of a 41-year-old man was located. The death has not been treated as suspicious," police said in a statement.
The beloved Home and Away actor was known for portraying Summer Bay bad boy Jesse McGregor from 1996 to 2000, returning from 2002 to 2005.
Ben's co-stars have taken to social media to share their memories of the actor, and share their condolences with his family.
"Cast and crew from Home and Away are saddened to learn of the passing of former castmate, Ben Unwin," The Seven Network said in a statement.
"Ben's work in the role of Jesse McGregor is remembered with much affection. Ben's family and friends are in our thoughts and prayers."
In celebration of Ben's time on the drama, TV WEEK looks back at some of Jesse's major moments.
