    Dustin was a joy to be around. My fiancé & I will miss his unique personality, and adventurous soul. His goal was to make you laugh & he would go out of his was to achieve it. Over the past few years we created a great friendship as Dustin wanted to be apart of my fiancé’s second independent film, which was created to feature Dustin’s role. He will be greatly missed. We are thinking about his family & friends who helped him through his final moments.

    Our condolences to the Diamond family. I grew up watching Dustin on Saved by the Bell. I always thought he was a great comedic actor. As an adult, I got to see him do stand up comedy and man, was he great! Thank you for bringing years of joy to so many as an actor and funnyman. Rest in Peace, Dustin.

  25. Dave Vergara Feb 4, 2021 at 5:27 pm

    I am deeply saddened by the loss of this talented young man. I was Dustin’s Publicist for a few years during SBTB. He was just as funny off screen as he was on. He was a kind person who used his celebrity status to help others. I have nothing but great memories of working with Dustin and his father mark. Many prayers to Mark and Dustin’s loved ones.

  32. Nicole Morley Feb 5, 2021 at 12:34 am

    My sincerest condolences go out to the Diamond family on the passing of Dustin

    As a Breast Cancer Survivor I was heartbroken to hear the news about Dustin and everything he was going through

    For me personally the world completely stopped for a brief moment as I was transported back to my own experience of what it was like to have chemo

    Like every other kid around the world I grew up watching Dustin play the amazing character of Samuel Screech Powers on Save By The Bell

    When it comes to the character of Screech I have to be honest and say I can definitely relate to him in more ways then one

    When I was going through school (way back when) I never fully realized at the time that being “NERDY” like Screech was a cool quality to have

    As an adult I’m slowly learning the fine art of embracing my NERDINESS which is something we all need to learn how to do( makes us more well rounded individuals)

    All of Dustin’s fans including myself owe him a huge THANK YOU for blessing the tv world and just the world in general with his AMAZING personality

    As someone said once “IT’S NOT GOODBYE IT’S UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN”


    One night I had a dream

    I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord

    Across the sky flashed scenes from my life

    For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints in the send

    One belonging to me and the other to the Lord

    When the last scene of my life flashed before me

    I looked back at the footprints in the sand

    I noticed that many times along the path of my life
    there was only one set of footprints

    I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
    and saddest times in my life

    This really bothered me and I questioned the Lord about it

    “Lord you said once I decided to follow you
    you would walk with me all the way

    But I have noticed that during the most troublesome
    times in my life there is only one set of footprints

    I don’t understand why when I need you most you would leave me”

    The Lord replied:

    “My precious child I love you and would never leave you

    During your times of trial and suffering when you see only one set of footprints
    it was then that I carried you”

  33. Cassandra Shute Feb 5, 2021 at 5:38 am

    Condolences to his family and friends. Wish I had the chance to have shared some laughs with Dustin. He brought many smiles and laughs to me growing up. May his soul be at peace and heal those he left behind. You were a true down to earth man Dustin. RIP, never forgotten. Missed dearly by all.

  34. Eileen Clinton Feb 5, 2021 at 8:06 am

    Rest easy. Watch the show with my kids and I even watch the repeats now. It was good person as well as a good actor and he will be missed. Cancer is a difficult illness I understand because I recently found out I have cancer as well.

  35. Casey Millspaugh Feb 5, 2021 at 8:42 am

    Rest In Peace Dustin. You filled my childhood with happiness and laughter everyday after school. You are awesome. You are more than your on screen character. I will remember you for a long long time.

  36. Anne Steiger Feb 5, 2021 at 11:12 am

    My oldest daughter is from your era. She loved your show. God gives His toughest battles, to His strongest soldiers. Boy you sure fought your share. No longer are you in so much pain, you’re life wasn’t easy sweetman but your done, finished and now is the Prize, eternal peace. I lost 3 brothers to cancer, and they also fought their share of battles and lost the last one. May your dad, that has lost so much have strength, peace, to go on. God, Jesus and humans, are sad, but Dustin, I know your momma, brother, and all in heaven have welcomed you home. My mom used to say, ” pray for the living bc the dead are at peace”. God bless us all.

    Dustin, I remember as a little boy watching you on Good Morning, Miss Bliss followed by Saved By The Bell throughout the 90s. You are forever one of the most iconic characters in TV history. I got the chance to catch you a few years back on one of your stand-up comedy shows. You will be deeply missed, but are forever in our hearts and in the memories of all your fans. Sending my deepest condolences to your family and friends. Rest easy.

  50. Brett A. Rodela Feb 22, 2021 at 9:37 am

    I just woke up from a dream including Dustin which went as follows:

    I was watching “Saved By the Bell” and his adult self, even an angel self, showed up in a scene with his kid-actor self. It was as if his older self was back/went back to his youth to reclaim his soul for his transition from this world. It brought me peace seeing, experiencing, witnessing him at peace and happy.

    I grew up Lutheran so it is neat to see he was/is also.

  51. Jules Mar 2, 2021 at 11:47 pm

    Watching him grow up on television from Good Morning, Miss Bliss at 11 to Saved By the Bell, The New Class at 23, it can’t be easy coming of age in front of millions and millions of viewers/fans, but Diamond was one who was able to make it through that, and the untimely death makes it nice to see his transition now from 1988 to 2000 to see how much of a diverse actor and talent he was. May the Diamond family honor his legacy both in front of and off the camera.

  52. EV Camacho Mar 11, 2021 at 9:01 am

    Thank you for your great performances and being a friend to everyone…you will be truly miss , our extended condolences to family and close friends.
