Jane Lynch Tearfully Remembers Cory Monteith on ‘The Tonight Show’ [VIDEO]

Jane Lynch was talking to Jay Leno last night (July 17) on ‘The Tonight Show’ when talk turned to her deceased ‘Glee’ co-star Cory Monteith, who passed away on July 13 due to an accidental drug overdose.

“Cory’s one of the biggest hearts, was a real bright light. He was one of those guys that you knew he was breathing rarefied air — the gift that this wonderful show gave us,” shared an unusually reserved and stoic Lynch.

“He was one of those guys who was always aware that it was a gift. He was quite generous and one of those adventurous types of people … he’d fly to Mexico, he’d throw parties for his friends,” she added of Monteith, who was cremated in a private ceremony following a private viewing on July 16.

As for how she would want people to remember him? “He was a real giver,” she concluded, telling Leno about how Monteith once flew on his own to visit a sick kid whose last wish was to meet him.

“I don’t think he left one day unlived,” Lynch mused. “He was a real bright light in our family. We’ve lost a really great guy.”
