SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (FOX 2) - Late Wednesday night, FOX 2 was heartbroken when we learned that our friend and colleague, meteorologist Jessica Starr took her life.
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.
On Thursday, the FOX 2 News staff showed up to work as we remember our friend. There are no correct words to explain our heartbreak and we'll never forget Jessica's bright, smiling face.
