It was incredibly sad and shocking to find out that Lee Thompson Young had died at the young age of 29. It was even more shocking to find out he committed suicide. The star of Disney’s The Famous Jett Jackson, who was currently appearing on TV series Rizzoli & Isles, also had roles on Smallville, Scrubs, and in the film version of Friday Night Lights as well.
His manager confirmed to E! Entertainment on Monday that Lee Thompson Young “tragically took his own life this morning.” His manager added, “Lee was more than just a brilliant young actor, he was a wonderful and gentle soul who will be truly missed. We ask that you please respect the privacy of his family and friends at this very difficult time.”
So incredibly sad. Check out how Hollywood reacted to his untimely passing right here:
