Ben Stiller Shares Heartfelt Tribute to Jerry Stiller on Anniversary of His Death

A year ago today came the tragic news that comedian Jerry Stiller, best known to some fans for playing Frank Costanza, father of George Costanza on Seinfeld, and for being the father of comedian Ben Stiller in reality, had passed away. To mark the occasion of one year since his father's passing, Ben took to social media to share a throwback photo of his father, writing the simple message: "💓you Dad." Jerry Stiller was 92 at the time of his passing. When announcing his dad's death last year, Ben wrote: "I'm sad to say that my father, Jerry Stiller, passed away from natural causes. He was a great dad and grandfather, and the most dedicated husband to Anne for about 62 years. He will be greatly missed. Love you Dad."
