We are all mourning the tragic death of Cameron Boyce. The Disney Channel actor unfortunately passed away after suffering a seizure in his sleep on July 6, 2019. He was only 20 years old at the time. The entire world, including his fans, friends and former costars were devastated over the heartbreaking loss. And now, Skai Jackson has opened up about how she’s coping.

“I just go day by day,” Skai, who starred in Jessie with Cameron, told Us Weekly at the HollyRod Foundation’s DesignCare Gala on Saturday, July 27. “He was like a brother to all of us, all of my castmates. We got to spend five amazing years with him.”

The 17-year-old added that it’s “really important to continue his legacy.” As fans know, Cameron was really passionate about giving back and was involved in numerous charities before his death. So after his sad passing, his family started a foundation in his honor.

“I’m just doing everything that he wanted to do and make sure that his legacy always lives on forever,” Skai continued.
