After the tragic death of 27-year-old camerawoman Sarah Jones, her friends and family created the Facebook page “Slates for Sarah,” where her film colleagues can post film slates honoring her memory. Check out our gallery of pictures to see shows that have paid tribute to Sarah.

Sarah touched so many lives, both personally and professionally, before her untimely death. Now all of those people are taking to the “Slates for Sarah” Facebook page to pay tribute.
The page already has more than 55,000 likes and has received slates from tons of major TV shows, including The Mindy Project, Castle, Black Sails, Hawaii Five-O, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Criminal Minds, Grimm, Arrow, Anger Management, Halt and Catch Fire, Revenge, Elementary, Togetherness, Mistresses, Devious Maids, Justified, The Crazy Ones, Scandal, NCIS, Rake and more.
How heartwarming. Sarah’s friends and family must be touched by this outpouring of love and support.
Sarah Jones: ‘Vampire Diaries’ Airs Beautiful Tribute After Tragic Death
Many of the shows Sarah has worked on are finding their own special ways to remember her. The Vampire Diaries paid its respects to its late crew member at the end of the Feb. 27 episode “No Exit.” The screen faded to black and showed a simple but powerful message:
“In Loving Memory of Sarah Jones, 1986 – 2014.”
Undoubtedly this action will lead to more people looking up Sarah to learn her story, and hopefully it will help raise awareness so that a senseless tragedy like this will never happen again.
