Bam Margera's uncle reportedly suffered from organ failure.

Jackass star Vincent "Don Vito" Margera reportedly died Sunday morning from organ and kidney failure, according to TMZ. He was 59.

TMZ reported that Don Vito, the uncle of Viva La Bam star Bam Margera, recently woke up from a coma, but was still suffering from kidney and organ failure. Bam Margera's mother, April Margera, reportedly told TMZ that Don Vito died on Sunday at 6:45 a.m. 

Don Vito appeared in the Jackass movies and was the target of stunts and pranks on MTV's Viva La Bam with his nephew before collapsing and falling into a coma in October in his Pennsylvania home. Don Vito was also on 10 years probation for a sex charge for groping three young girls at an autograph session, according to The Huffington Post

The loss of Margera comes after the death of Jackass co-star Ryan Dunn, who died in a car crash in 2011. 

Don Vito's rep did not immediately return The Hollywood Reporter's request for comment.
