Sad News: Lee Thompson Young former Disney Star Has Passed Away.


I'm so sad to blog about this. Lee Thompson Young best known for his work as Jett Jackson on Disney has died. Its being reported that it was a suicide although I hope that is not true. I hope and pray that is just a tragic horrible accident. 

Lee Thompson Young was one of my favorite actors. I loved Jett Jackson as a kid and I had a major crush on him. He seemed very charismatic on screen and had a certain vibe about him that was unmatched. Bet you didn't know Lee wrote on the Pilot episode of Jett Jackson! Crazy talented!
