such a sad loss, may she RIP
Sorry to hear of her untimely death.
Enjoyed her on SNL. Another comic with a great smile lost....
It's such a shock to see that headline. I'm only two years younger than her, and I remember seeing her on a show called 'Tush' out of Atlanta when I was in my early 20's. She was part of an ensemble cast on this locally-produced comedy show, but so obviously more talented than the rest of them. At the time I thought she really deserved to make it big, so I was proud my instincts proved correct when i saw she had been cast on 'SNL'. What a great talent, so sad to lose her
Jan was also a good friend of Meshach Taylor.
