Does anyone remember Jett Jackson? Well, Lee T. Young, the guy who played him, has apparently committed suicide at the age of 29. I remember really liking the show when I was a kid.

I saw this earlier! Its very sad to hear. I didn't have Disney channel back then so I guess I didn't watch it. I probably saw commercials or something, I dunno. RIP.

Used to watch that show when I was a kid. Bums me out.

I had never heard of Jett Jackson before today, but I have been watching him on Rizzoli and Isles. I'll never know, or be able to understand, what drives a person to take their own life. Impossible to imagine what his friends and family are going through, I feel for them, and I'll miss seeing him on the show.

Yeah I used to watch the show back then. Really sad that it was a suicide. Must have been a lot going through his head to just end it all.

Huh, so just like Nickelodeon before 2001, Disney also made shows that weren't just anorexic stagemom pageant ambercrombie sluts who later get photographed without panties stepping out of limos.

Barely remember that show. Always sad to see someone let their personal demons win out over them.

Are you thinking of Donald Faison, or was this guy also on Scrubs? I've only seen a few episodes, so I don't know if he was a character at some point in the series.

Ah, I saw the story about his suicide in the news and I couldn't figure out where I recognized him from, now I remember him.

I never watched him on Jett Jackson, I know of him from more recent shows. Very sad to hear and so young.

He's one of those actors I remember from a bunch of minor roles in a ton of movies and shows. I hope he finds whatever it is he was looking for. It's too bad he couldn't while alive.
