Another person added, “Ooh such a great acting talent, may his soul rest in peace. Another legend is lost in the entertainment industry. Jamie, cried almost at anything he could watch ants doing what they do, and he'd burst into tears but Genero would probably set up a firebomb for the ants RIP Boetie”. Many people say they cannot believe he is just gone like that.

Another person who commented that Jamie is one of the most talented actors the country ever produced declared, “One of the best actors this Country has ever produced, your acting skills and talent remain unmatched.
