Dustin Lance Black, Marlee Matlin and Jackée Henry also shared memories of working with the famous comedian.

Immediately after news broke of Leslie Jordan’s tragic death from a car accident, friends, collaborators and fans took to social media to share their memories of the Emmy-winning comedian.

‘Will and Grace’ star Sean Hayes, who frequently starred alongside Jordan in the latter’s appearances on the sitcom, called him ‘one of the funniest people’ he’s ever been with hard-working and “uniquely talented with a huge, caring heart”.

Paul Feig, who appeared with Jordan in the 1990 film “Ski Patrol,” called Jordan, “A real darling” and said, “The world is a much sadder place without him.”

“Under the Banner of Heaven” creator and “Milk” screenwriter Dustin Lance Black expressed his grief over Jordan’s passing on Twitter, calling the comedian a “sweet sister from the south.” The two appeared together in the 2012 documentary “Hollywood to Dollywood.”

Marlee Matlin shared memories of working with Jordan on the 1992 TV series “Reasonable Doubts.” Jordan appeared as a recurring character in 16 episodes of the legal drama, starring Matlin and Mark Harmon.

“Sister, Sister” and “227” star Jackée Henry posted a scene from Jordan’s 2018 Fox series “The Cool Kids,” which she starred in for two episodes.
