Jeanne Cooper’s long time scene partner and friend, Jess Walton (Jill) of The Young and the Restless, spoke with to give a sneak peek and what to expect next Tuesday May 28th, when the number one soap takes time out of their stories, for a special episode honoring Cooper who passed away earlier this month.

According to’s chat with Jess, the actress revealed,  “We tell the audience what we are about to do in the special and then five different groups talk about her. What was really funny was how much we all had in common. Kristoff St. John (Neil) was a little pissed off because he thought he had a special relationship with her and it turns out everybody had a special relationship with her. She had the power to make everyone feel so special”

So what do you think of the concept of the special tribute to Mrs C.?   Who are you hoping to see share their favorite memories of the daytime legend? Let us know!
