Jason took to his Instagram account to write, “This goes out to his family, his friends that loves him so much, our cast mates and his many, many fans. Billy-thank you for keeping me honest. For as long as the opportunity is mine, I will forever dedicate myself to the history you built for Billy Abbott on @youngandrestlesscbs. Light and love, my friend.”
The actor also added, “It’s hard for to think about him being gone. More than a few years ago, I was very much aware of Billy while I was on General Hospital, because he was a fantastic actor. I remember being in the audience when he won a few of his Emmys and he had that kind of thing when he is up on screen where you believe every word that he said … he was in it. We got to work together and became friends.”
