Like Luke Perry’s millions of fans, his children are remembering the actor with touching posts.
For the past two days, Luke’s son Jack Perry has remained relatively silent on his father’s passing, perhaps letting things sink in and gathering his thoughts before speaking publicly. But earlier today, the time came for Jack to pay tribute to his father on his Instagram account.
In the post, Jack shared two photos. The first picture is a solo shot of himself standing in a wrestling ring and looking out into the crowd. The second photo features a throwback of Jack and his father and both boys have huge smiles on their faces. And to go along with the cute images was a touching caption that is enough to bring anyone to tears. The wrestling star started off the post by saying that Luke was a lot of different things to a lot of people, but to him, he was just dad.
“He loved supported me in everything, and inspired me to be the best that I could possibly be,” he wrote. “I’ve learned so much from you, and my heart is broken thinking about everything you won’t be here for. I’ll miss you every day that I walk this earth.”

To end the post, Jack promises his father that he will do everything that he can to carry on his legacy and make him proud. His last words are “I love you dad.” Within just a few hours of going live, the post has earned Luke a lot of attention with over 4,000 likes in addition to 400-plus comments. Of course, many fans took to the photo to send their condolences to Perry’s son.
Jack is a wrestler who goes by the name of JungleBoy, but he is taking some time off following his dad’s tragic death. As The Inquisitr recently shared, Perry pulled out of Bar Wrestling’s show in Los Angeles on March 13 to spend time with family and mourn the loss of his father.
Perry’s daughter, Sophie, also paid tribute to her father in a touching post on her own Instagram account. As The Inquisitr shared, along with a photo of herself and her dad, she also shared a heartfelt caption to remember her late father.
“A lot has happened in this past week for me. Everything is happening so fast. I made it back from Malawi just in time to be here with my family, And in the past 24 hours I have received an overwhelming amount of love and support,” she started the post before thanking everyone who had reached out to her.
Perry passed away this Monday after suffering a massive stroke the week prior. He was starring in the hit show Riverdale at the time of his death.
