On the last episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jay Leno, he gives a teary-eyed, heartfelt speech on how his staff became his family. When he finally reached a major dream of his, hosting The Tonight Show, in the first year, he lost his mom, in the second year, he lost his dad, and then his brother passed away. These intense hardships led Leno to accept his work as a part of his family. Jay Leno also explains how he is the “luckiest guy in the world” and these were the greatest 22 years of his life, being able to meet presidents, astronauts, stars, and more. Leno ends the speech quoting the late and great Johnny Carson.
