Our hearts are heavy as we report the loss of Fox 2 Meteorologist Jessica Starr who took her own life last night.

Jessica was a Michigan native, born in Southfield and raised in Commerce Township.

She received two meteorology degrees from Michigan State University and Mississippi State University.

FOX 2 has stated that they are in deep shock and cannot believe that such a wonderful, bright and intelligent individual will no longer be with them.

She leaves behind a husband, two beautiful children and a loving family.
