I am very concerned about this. He is such a sweet person and funny guy. Why would anyone make such statements? Life is no joke and too darn short for this kinda behavior.

I was sad when I heard that he was dead and thank God that he's not! Why would anyone say that about someone that the world has loved since forever? Why try to bring pain to hearts?

People need to stop and think before they say something like that cause just cause Jaleel is famous doesn't mean he doesn't have feelings people.

Who would joke about such a great actor like this? I cant beleive somebody would mess with MY LOVE OF STEPHEN QUINCY URKEL just to get a good laugh! Whoever did this, what goes around comes around and Jaleel, if you are reading this then I LOVE YOU SOOO MUCH UR AWESOME (well really I love Steve Urkel) but I think ur cute and I love your 30 second appearances like on Big Fat Liar and on Dreamgirls. Just 30 seconds, but the most glorious 30 seconds in the WHOLE MOVIE! YOU ROCK JALEEL AND YOU BETTER NOT COMMIT SUICIDE FOR REAL!

First off, Jaleel White, better known on Family Matters as the infamous Steven Q. Urkel is not dead. He is in the process of reinventing his career. He took some time away from acting, to earn a B.A., in Film and Television from UCLA's school of theater. Steve was funny in the show, and nobody could have done a better job then Jaleel.

But in 2006, he was laying down on his bed with a gun next to him and a note that read "Did I do that?".
I'm pretty sure that constitutes suicide.

Subject: FW: Jaleel White (Steve Urkel)

LOS ANGELES, California (AP)--

Jaleel White, who played 'nerdy ' neighbor Steve Urkel on "Family Matters" found dead Monday. He was 29 years old.

White was pronounced dead on arrival after admission to an LA hospital early Monday morning. The death is being investigated as a suicide.

Born Jaleel Ahmad White, he began his career at the age of three acting in television commercials, before landing guest spots on shows such as "The Jeffersons" and "Mr. Belvedere." It was in 1989 that White landed the role that would make him famous, playing wacky neighbor 'Steve Urkel' on the ABC program "Family Matters."

Following the cancellation of "Family Matters" in 1997, friends claim White became obsessed with the character, and grew despondent, despite further successes as star and producer of the UPN sitcom "Grownups", and as a writer for NBA.com Neighbor and friend, Bradley Spencer alerted police after hearing what he described as "a loud bang" coming from White's Los Angeles apartment.

Authorities state that upon entering the home they discovered a young African-American male with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Also found was a note, which read simply "Did I do that?", a popular catchphrase from the show.

"Jaleel was an uncommonly good man, an exceptional role model and a great comedic actor," said William Bickley, who created the series, and Thomas L. Miller, one of the executive producers, in a joint statement.

"We feel privileged to have known him and worked with him. He'll be missed and remembered every day by his many, many friends," they said.

Actress Kellie Williams -- Laura Winslow on the series -- described White as a consummate professional actor. "Everyone adored him," she said.

"We have all lost a dear, dear brother," said Reginald VelJohnson, who played Carl Winslow. White, an only child, is survived by "cousins, aunts, uncles, and wonderful friends," Bickley said.

This is so fake, you can tell because it is wrong. The show was canceled in 1998. And any way he is in some upcoming movies. You can't beleive everything that is on the internet !)

It does not constitute suicide if it's bogus! You can't believe all those asinine people on the internet. People should not lie about this kind of thing. Life is not something you fool around a with. Why would people bring pain to the hearts of those who are fans of Jaleel White. Don't be so apathetic!

P.S I am not really apathetic, it's just a user name.:)

It's not a lie. It's the truth.
Tell you what, I'll look on Wikipedia and see if Urkel is dead, okay?
