Sad news for fans, family, and friends of the late Disney Channel star Cameron Boyce. Boyce, 20, died in his sleep on Saturday night as a result from a seizure that occurred because of an ongoing medical condition.
Boyce starred in various Disney Channel films and shows such as the Descendants, Shake it Up, Austin & Ally, and his breakout role playing Luke on Jessie. He also appeared as Adam Sandler’s son in Grown Ups and Grown Ups 2.
The family said, “He passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated. The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him.”

I don’t even know where to start… I am at a loss for words. I never thought in a million years I would be writing this. Cam, you were one of a kind. My heart will be forever broken. I am so happy that I got to spend almost everyday with you on set, you gave the best hugs. I wish I would have hugged you tighter when I saw you a couple of months ago. Thank you so much for being the big brother I never had… I am so distraught and I cannot stop crying! I love you so much… fly high 👼🏼 💔😢 Gods best Angel . #CameronBoyce
I had the opportunity to meet Cameron Boyce at this year’s Courage Awards and through his work with @ItsOnUs. He was filled with so much light and served as a tremendous role model for young people. He's gone far too soon. @DrBiden and I are sending our prayers to his family. pic.twitter.com/4bpbqwqnrO
