In addition, it was not immediately clear if Jordan was killed in the crash or suffered a medical emergency beforehand. The condition of the vehicle has some to suspect that Jordan may have lost control of the car before slamming into the building.

David Shaul, the actor’s representative, issued a statement on his death.

“The world is definitely a much darker place today without the love and light of Leslie Jordan,” Shaul said. “Not only was he a mega talent and joy to work with, but he provided an emotional sanctuary to the nation at one of its most difficult times. What he lacked in height he made up for in generosity and greatness as a son, brother, artist, comedian, partner and human being. Knowing that he has left the world at the height of both his professional and personal life is the only solace one can have today.”

Many people online have shared their thoughts on the tragic death including former costars.

“Will & Grace” co-star Sean Hayes chimed in, saying: “Leslie Jordan was one of the funniest people I ever had the pleasure of working with.”
