When I was 14, I got my first job as the daughter of Don (Jed Allan) and Marlena (@deidrehall_official ) on @nbcdays There were no two better people to learn from. Jed was not only an amazing actor, he and Dei taught me everything With patience and love. I still hear his notes in my ear when I work today. I am so sad to hear that Jed has passed away. He was the nicest man ever. Rest In Peace, I will never forget you.
So saddened to hear about the passing of the dear, wonderful Jed Allan. He took me under his wing & made me feel at home at @daysofourlives. Jed was a force of nature & beloved by all. His smile will live forever in my heart. Condolences to his family.
