Cameron Boyce was an inspiration.

Following the tragic loss of the talented-beyond-words 20-year-old, who passed away in his sleep early Saturday morning due to an ongoing medical condition, members of the community — from his “Descendants” and “Jessie” costars to actors and entertainers who looked up to him as a role model, and everyone in between — took to social media to share their loving memories and heartbreaking reactions to his too-soon death.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones, and we urge fans and followers to respect his family’s privacy during this time of grief. You can read a statement from the Boyce family here.

you are something extraordinarily special cam. i cannot grasp what a world without you looks like yet, nor do i want to. nothing i can write will feel right, or pay enough tribute to how incredible you actually are, but all i know is i am so beyond lucky to have known you and eternally grateful for the times you and i shared together. I feel very sick to my stomach writing this, and i wish i could hug you. you had the most incredible mind, spirit, sense of humor, heart, and too much talent for your own good. you were an angel on earth and i can only imagine all the sensational things you would have done had this world given you more time. you will be so fucking missed. but absolutely never forgotten. to your family, i am sending all the love in the world as i can’t imagine how you are feeling in this time. see you again one day cam.

Putting pen to paper after something like this is difficult to say the least…I don’t really know what to say. My heart is broken. But I do feel that any experience with Cameron is one worth sharing. What I can say is, I will miss him so deeply and my heart is shattered for those who were close to him, for they know how much he loved them and how lucky we all were to experience the rarity that was Cameron. My heart absolutely aches for the Boyce’s and for his closest friends. For my Descendants family. For those he impacted from a distance. Cam only ever spoke or acted out of a place of love, and lead by example. Over the time I knew him, both from near and far, I was never not astounded by his endless humanity and his care for those he knew, and those he didn’t. He radiated a palpable light. How cruel life is to take him away. I love you forever TCB, thank you for showing me what it means to live life to its absolute fullest. Your endless joy and love and goodness was completely singular and the world is now lesser off…. I will miss you so much my dear friend.

I really thought about it before posting this, as I couldn’t get this out of my head the entire day. I didn’t know Cameron well, I only ever had one conversation with him at a kid’s choice carpet and man was I excited… I mean, I watched him growing up & the second his character was introduced on Jessie, I knew he was bound to be my favorite. Since I adored his character so much as a child, the first thing I did when I first saw him in person at an event, was rant to my mom about how thrilled I was that he had been there. I mean, how cool right? I don’t know if it was because he inspired me throughout my childhood, or because he was so incredibly young, or because he was such a genuinely good human being, that this just hurts. While this may not mean much now, I send so much love and support out to Cameron’s closest friends, his mother, father, and sister. You were a star Cameron, we all knew, and just look at the beautiful, positive impact you’ve had on all those that knew you, and knew of you. Thank you. Also, life itself is such a marvelous gift that we must never take for granted… use your time wisely, go and spread happiness, chase your wildest dreams, learn, laugh, run, dance, and most of all, love.

Cameron to me was always the sweetest most genuine person who always went out of his way to make you feel welcomed and special. Laughter, dance parties, cracking jokes, clowning around is what I remember most. I grew up watching you on Jessie and remember just how amazing it was to meet him in person and over the years whenever we would run into each other how you would go out of your way to give me that great big smile with arms open wide and give me the biggest hugs. I’m so at a lost for words. It’s so sad, it’s so unfair, it just doesn’t make sense. I’m deeply thinking and sending my prayers to his loving family and closest friends. We are all crying today. Our Disney channel family lost a beautiful soul today but I know his memory will last forever in our hearts. I Love you so much sweet Cameron. God Bless you😘😘😘😘 #DisneyFamily 💕 #CameronBoyce

This picture was taken about 7 YEARS ago. I remember us bonding that day over our similar music taste and love for dancing! We were both super new to this industry but he had been in it a tad longer than me. As the years went on, I learned a lot from him. He was an incredible role model for me and millions more. Although we never became very close, he showed me and my family nothing but kindness every time we ran into each other! Forever grateful for the support and advice you’ve given to me. Cameron, thank you for sharing your heart, soul, and immense talent with the world. I’m heartbroken that you left us so soon but heaven gained an iconic angel yesterday! Rest in Paradise, bro❤️ • • • P.S. – let this be a reminder that tomorrow is not promised…cherish every moment with your loved ones, hold them a little tighter.
