JR was someone I had the privileged of working with on two separate shows. He was kind, brilliant, silly. Never flashy, he could steal a scene just by giving so much to other performers.
He passed away the other night, causes unknown at this point. It hit me like a ton of bricks. He was young and seemingly healthy. I am writing something now that would have been perfect for his immense talents.
I am so sad that this 20-something is gone from my life. He was one of the good guys in improv; he was one of the great guys in life.
