“The Vampire Diaries” paid tribute to camera assistant Sarah Jones on Thursday (Feb. 27) by dedicating the episode, “No Exit,” in her honor.
The beloved crew member, 27, died last week while shooting “Midnight Rider” in Georgia. Jones was hit by a train while filming on the tracks, and her tragic death has inspired her friends and family to create the “Slates for Sarah” campaign, gathering signatures to have her name be included in the 2014 Oscars “In Memoriam” segment on Sunday (March 2).
But closer to home, Jones was honored before Thursday’s (Feb. 27) episode of “TVD” on The CW affiliate in Savannah, Ga., as a photo of Jones and a farewell message appeared onscreen. Watch a clip of the touching tribute below:
And immediately following the episode, another tribute card flashed onscreen, reading: “In Loving Memory. Sarah Jones. 1986-2014.”
