He passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated.
Cameron had his first break-out role aged just nine in the horror movie Mirrors, after starring in General Hospital.
He found further fame starring as Adam Sandler and Salma Hayek’s son in Grown Ups, and Grown Ups 2.
After his debut as a nine-year-old, he went on to star in Shia LaBeouf thriller Eagle Eye.
He then had his star break as the character Luke on Disney Channel hit Jessie, opposite Debby Ryan.
The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him.
