DETROIT — FOX 2 Detroit announced some very sad news Thursday morning. The station said meteorologist Jessica Starr took her own life.

FOX 2 said,  “All of us here at FOX 2 are in deep shock and cannot believe that such a wonderful, bright and intelligent individual will no longer be with us. Her family and friends will be in our thoughts and prayers in the coming days as we all deal with our grief.”

The 35-year-old Michigan native reportedly leaves behind a husband and two children.

Starr had recently been off the air due to laser eye surgery.

On October 12, she posted on Facebook, “Lasik SMILE went well! Still foggy vision but I can SEE!”

If you or a loved one needs help, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, or text 741-741.
