We’ve lost a member of the Queer Eye family. If you watched season one of the acclaimed Netflix reboot, you’ll surely remember standout Tom Jackson, the very first “straight guy” helped by the Fab 5.
Starring in the 2018 premiere episode titled, You Can’t Fix Ugly, the Georgia resident opened up about his battle with lupus, and eventually regained his confidence after getting a complete makeover.
He even reconnected with his ex-wife (though they separated again in 2019 — reality TV can’t fix everything). Sadly, we must report that the fan fave has tragically passed away at the age of 63.
It just seems so young these days.
