Sad news to report. Disney star, Cameron Boyce of ‘Jessie’ fame has passed away at the young age of 20. This hit me because my nieces and nephews LOVED his shows and being around them I grew to like them too even as an adult.
Cameron Boyce, the star of the Disney Channel franchise ‘Descendants’ and the television series ‘Jessie’ has died. He was 20.
“It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron,” a family spokesperson said in a statement to ABC News on Saturday night, sharing that the cause of the young actor’s death was due to “an ongoing medical condition.”
“He passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated. The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him,” the family spokesperson said. “We are utterly heartbroken and ask for privacy during this immensely difficult time as we grieve the loss of our precious son and brother.” [People]
