Who isn't excited to see Caitlyn Jenner tonight?!

Count YouTube star turned transgender youth icon Jazz Jennings among those who can't get enough of Caitlyn and are applauding her for what she's done for the LGBT community since declaring her intention to live the rest of her life as the woman she always felt herself to be.

"I am so proud of Caitlyn," Jazz, whose new TLC show I Am Jazz premieres tonight, gushed to E! News before the 23rd Annual ESPY Awards.

Jenner, who as Bruce Jenner won the gold medal in the Decathlon at the 1976 Summer Olympics, is receiving the Arthur Ashe Courage at the ESPYs. Daughters Kendall and Kylie and son Brody hit the red carpet beforehand and will be joined by a number of other family members at the show.

"She has made such a difference in our world," Jazz continued, "and she really opened up people's minds and visibility just by being her authentic self and living her life true to who she is. It's just incredible and I am just so proud of her...and look at her she is beautiful and finding her happiness!"

They haven't met yet, but the 14-year-old is hoping that changes tonight!

"I am hoping to meet her tonight but I know she will be escorted by a trillion people—but I hope!" she gushed. "If I can meet her one day, that would be great!
