Michelle Obama Honors Cameron Boyce With A Heartfelt Tribute

Former first lady Michelle Obama posted a heartfelt tribute to the late actor Cameron Boyce. She is one among many to honor Cameron’s life since he tragically passed away last Saturday.

It was announced by a spokesperson for Boyce’s family that the Disney star passed away in his sleep last weekend due to an ongoing medical condition according to CNN. However, it has now been confirmed that Boyce suffered from epilepsy. His family told People in a statement that the 20-year-old’s “tragic passing was due to a seizure as a result of an ongoing medical condition, and that condition was epilepsy.”


Michelle Obama shared a message on Twitter about how in Boyce’s short life he had an amazing heart. “I was lucky enough to share a few moments with Cameron Boyce—on set, at the White House and on a service project—enough time to recognize that not only did he have incredible talent, but also an incredible heart,” the former first lady said, “Sending love & hugs to his family, friends and his many, many fans,” she added.

Boyce had starred in several popular films including the horror film “Mirrors,” "Eagle Eye" alongside Shia LaBeouf and Disney productions like “Jessie” and “Descendants.” He also starred in the movie franchise “Grown Ups” with Adam Sandler. Sandler also posted an emotional tribute to the young actor. “Too young. Too sweet. Too funny. Just the nicest, most talented, and most decent kid around." He shared a beautiful black and white portrait of Boyce and continued to say alongside the photo, "Loved that kid. Cared so much about his family. Cared so much about the world.”
