Michelle Obama makes a healthy drink with comedian Peyton List and Cameron Boyce from the comedy series Jessie during the annual White House Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn of the White House on April 21, 2014 in Washington, DC.

Michelle Obama is the latest to reflect on her experience with Cameron Boyce, who tragically died at the age of 20 after he was found unresponsive by his roommates in his home. He died from a seizure, caused by an ongoing health condition.

"I was lucky enough to share a few moments with Cameron Boyce—on set, at the White House, and on a service project—enough time to recognize that not only did he have incredible talent, but also an incredible heart," the former First Lady wrote in an Instagram post on Tuesday (July 9). "Sending out a lot of love and hugs to his family, friends, and his many, many fans."  

Obama is among a long list of others who took to social media to share how Boyce touched their lives, including presidential hopeful Joe Biden, Jessie co-star Karan Brar, Skai Jackson, Sophie Reynolds and Debby Ryan. Boyce's father, Victor, thanked everyone for their support via Twitter.
