Disney Channel Star Cameron Boyce has passed away at the age of 20.
The Jessie and Descendants star died from an ongoing medical condition, according to his family.
“It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron. 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. We are utterly heartbroken and ask for privacy during this immensely difficult time as we grieve the loss of our precious son and brother.”

The young actor had dedicated himself to charity work in recent years, introducing former Vice President Joe Biden at his Biden Courage Awards in March, and he was honored with the Pioneering Spirit Award at last year’s Thirst Gala, sponsored by the Thirst Project, a nonprofit for which Boyce raised $30,000 to build wells for clean drinking water in Swaziland.
Boyce, who was from Los Angeles, made his acting debut in the horror film Mirrors at just 9 years old. Two years later, he appeared in the blockbuster Adam Sandler flick, Grown Ups as one of Sandler’s children.
His most recent project for Disney was Descendants 3, which premieres August 2, 2019.
