Leslie Jordan passed away at the age of 67 after suffering a medical emergency while driving his BMW.
The beloved comedian reportedly crashed his vehicle into the side of a Hollywood building, with authorities thinking he may have suffered a heart attack while driving.
Before the incident, he was suffering from shortness of breath and had made an appointment to see a cardiologist.
News of Jordan’s health come only hours after CBS Mornings shared one of the comedian’s final interviews.
The video was set to be aired next week but was released days early in light of his death.
In the interview, the 67-year-old talked about his years-long battle against addiction and how it showed him that the best way to clean living was to ‘serve’ people.
He also shared how he achieved happiness by following that code.
Jordan told CBS’s Anthony Mason that fame gives a ‘platform’ and people can decided whether to give or take.
“The only thing that fame gives you is a platform,” he expressed.
“And then you have to decide am I gonna give or am I gonna take? And I want to give – I want to leave a mark in some ways – but I want to be of service.”
He also shared how having that kind of mindset helped him live happily.
“You know you learn that in recovery very early on, that the way in which to stay clean and to stay sober is to be of service to another, and that takes you out of yourself,” he said.
“I think that’s it that I want to live a life of service to other people, and that gives me happiness.”
