Lee was born on February 1st , 1984 in Columbia, South Carolina. At the age of ten he decided that he wanted to become an actor. He moved to New York City in 1996, and later he got the leading role in “The Famous Jett Jackson”.

After the cancellation of the show he had some guest parts in a few TV shows, one of them was in the comedy show “Scrubs”. His last appearance was in “Rizzoli & Isles”, where he played Detective Barry Frost, the partner of Jane Rizzoli (portrayed by Angie Harmon).

On August 19, he didn’t show up for work so they called the police to check if he’s good, at his apartment. He was found dead.

He was 29. His life was taken too early.

Lee was an amazing actor, and had a great talent.

He always succeeded in making people laugh, cry, think, to do something, smile and so much more, just the way he acted or – off set – just being himself.

He will be missed.

The episode “No One Mourns The Wicked” {4x09} was dedicated to Lee:
