Cheslie Kryst, Miss USA 2019, Dead At 30

Further details reportedly remain under investigation. Kryst's family mourned her loss in a statement to Access Hollywood, saying in part: "Her great light was one that inspired others around the world with her beauty and strength."

Depression doesn’t discriminate. She had it all. Beauty ...brains and accolades and yet she still took her life. Rip beautiful girl. Heartbreaking.
Mental health is the most overlooked and undervalued treasure. It will never matter; your beauty, success, etc. If you don’t have your mental health, you have nothing at all. I’m sorry that whatever was hurting her brought her to that dark place. Rest In Peace and may those who loved her, find peace as well.

This is so sad. She appeared to have everything. You just don’t know what’s really going on with people 😢
This is so unbelievable. Someone who had accomplished so much in life at the young age of 30. And very beautiful and seemed very happy. You never know what someone is personally going through. May she rest in peace.

My roommate was friends with her. She told me that the last time she talked to Cheslie was about 3 weeks ago and she seemed off. My roommate thought maybe she was just stressed/having a bad day so she didn't really think much of it. Now she's blaming herself and wishing she knew what was going on and could have done something. This is all around just a terrible tragedy. RIP Cheslie.

This is truly heartbreaking. Mental health affects us all indiscriminately. Smart, beautiful and successful yet this is no guarantee for our mental wellness. I wish anyone going through dark times the very best. I hope you know you are loved
Amazing Woman! I hope everyone gets through what they are going through. Prayers to everyone out there,man! ✊🏾

This woman had it all, and chose to end her life anyway. Just further proof that "depression" has absolutely nothing to do with the physical state of being lonely and not having any friends/family to turn to, or experiencing bad breaks in life. It is a mental disease, and is just as harmful as heart disease, cancer, diabetes etc.

You never know what someone is struggling with internally. you see the outside which can be beautifully dressed up and inside struggling with inner demons..BE KIND...Rest in Peace...
She’s absolutely gorgeous this goes to show that anyone rich or poor have their own struggles and you can’t really know what goes on behind closed doors

As someone who has had bouts of depression since I was a child, this shocked me and is scary at the same time. I saw her on Extra almost every night and thought how happy she must be to wake up everyday and be her. Little did I know this news would come. It scares me because I always wonder if those who have gone through with it, did it based off of the intensity of depression I've felt or was it a deeper, stronger depression that caused them to do it. I always wonder if I'll get a wave of depression one day that hits so hard that I can't hold on.

In March 2021, Cheslie penned an essay in which she recounted how she had been working herself to death and about being trolled.

In the essay, written for Allure, she said that she “cringed” at the thought of turning 30.

She wrote: “Society has never been kind to those growing old, especially women.

“…Turning 30 feels like a cold reminder that I’m running out of time to matter in society’s eyes - and it’s infuriating.”

She detailed her struggle with “the relentless tick of time” and being enamored with “20 under 20” and “30 under 30” lists that linked achievement to being young and successful.

According to Cheslie, that kind of mindset created an unfortunate side effect on young people, who might have been encouraged to accomplish feats as fast as possible. SAD MINDSET!!!

I didn't see this coming at all. She was open about how important her mental health was to her. She was beautiful, intelligent, and charismatic. It goes to show that just because you seem like you have it doesn't mean it is true. RIP Miss USA, I wish your family and friends strength during this tragedy. Everyone, please reach out to someone for help. This would devastate me if my daughters were to commit suicide.

Unbelievable. She could have walked into any police department / hospital / church even called her best friend but chose to end it. She must have really felt alone.
I’ve met her once and the exact same way she looks in pictures is the exact same she looks in person.

She was very nice and confident with her presence. However, you never know what people are going through behind closed doors.

I wish I would’ve gotten a picture with her to capture a moment with a beautiful soul.

Rest in power Cheslie 💜!

This is just sad 😞 and tragic! My sincere condolences go out to all of her loved ones and friends! Some people just don’t know the difference between being depressed vs. having depression. Just goes to show everyone, that even though you may appear fine on the outside, you really never know what that person is going through on the inside. My heart breaks 💔 for her entire family! R.I.P. beautiful Chesley! ❤️✨🙏🏼✨❤️

Miss USA, was a practicing attorney, beautiful, sweet, successful. Just heartbreaking and prayers to her family. Miss Kyrst is a prime example of why we should all strive to be kind to one another. This tragedy is proof that no matter how well put together someone may appear, they just might be at the end of their rope. And the next person you interact with, whether they appear successful or down on their luck, at that moment they too just may be in need of some kindness. Maybe more than ever.

Depression is such a dark and desolate place. I remember the years I struggled with it.....
The depression is one of the worst diseases you can get. Not everyone understands it. And she didn't show her depression on her social media.
Mary Fakhoury
Mary Fakhoury:
I can so relate to this. I was Miss Illinois, I had two master’s degree and taught at a university and was on numerous magazine covers and so on, but I didn’t care I was sad all of time. Many people thought that I was crazy, many would make comments like “why would you want to kill yourself you have everything going for you beauty BrainsAnd talent you have the world at your feet but they don’t understand that depression does not discriminate I would fear waking up in the morning to see where my mind would take me what roller coaster I was on I spent 3 to 4 times a year in the hospital it’s an ongoing battle that I wouldn’t wish on anybody. I take my medicine I exercise and I do what I’m supposed to do I wish it would just go away but I guess I have to maintain it now and suffer in silence for taking me taking my life is not an answer because I was afraid to hurt the ones around me that loved me so I suffer in silence and I’m very proactive with my care I take my medicine I go to my therapy as in my psychiatrist I feel as if I’m broken and I’m trying to regain myself again. So to all of you suffering from depression it doesn’t matter if you’re an extremely competent person or you’ve done nothing in your life depression does not discriminate
OMG. That's so heartbreaking. Prayers going out to the family.
Truly heartbreaking. Condolences to her family and friends. Rest in peace.

She shoud've visited the the third world countries so she will realize how blessed she is. There are people out there who could hardly eat one meal a day. She's rich, popular, beautiful, intelligent. She has everything. It's sad that she ended her life.

This news is so heartbreaking, knowing she has achieved many great things at the age of 30. At the end of the day, we never know what people are going through, which is why we should not be judgmental, easy throwing words towards others.

I am absolutely shocked beyond belief after hearing this tragic news. My condolences to her family and her colleagues at Extra .I would watch her on the show and I never imagined that she would take her own life.She seemed like such a happy person and oh so talented. She should have talked to someone about the pain she was going through. Maybe she felt embarrassed and too ashamed to ask for help.If anyone who is reading this post is going through what Cheslie was going through, for God's sake please get help. Nothing could be so bad that you feel you have no choice but to end it all. Your pain is just temporary and things will get better. This should serve as a teachable moment that if you know of someone who is going through the same thing, please encourage them to get help. Again, my deepest sympathy to her family, friends and co-workers. May God give you the strength that you need at this difficult time and may Cheslie rest in peace.

Regardless of how much you believe that suicide will give you peace just remember the hurt that you'll leave behind pain is a mountain greater than your own. There's nothing so deeply painful just to know you'll never see or talk to a person that you truly love ever again. You're better off talking to the people that love you and being open about how you feel. They will support. You're not alone in your fight. You might even be surprised that someone close to you can completely relate to what you're going through.

She's a beauty queen and a lawyer... had it all... but still not happy. Wow.

She even got counseling and did all this "self-care"... and still. Wow.
What a devastating event for the family to try to process. How sad; praying for their strength.
Times are so peculiar, we all need to give attention to our mental wellness.
Sending deepest condolences to you and family rip🕊🙌🏼💖
This is heartbreaking. RIP Cheslie.
It’s just a sad loss, that she wasn’t able to reach out to someone about whatever internal issues she was having to help her continue on this earth. Always remember to reach out, help is out there.. Rest in peace, an incredible lady,
Omg that last post she had really did give a hint of what she was going to do. This is so terrible you never really know what’s going on in someone’s head.💔

Rest in Peace 🙏 Beautiful, I know how it feels like. Sometimes people thought you have everything you need but they dont know what you're longing for and what's inside your heart. I was depressed many times, the only thing that saves me is my Faith in God and always try to remember that there's one person who needed me the most "my son"
I'm shocked. May her Soul Rest In Peace!
Rest in peace, Angel
You were such a beautiful light that will be missed. I can't believe this happened, and you are gone. I am inspired to look more into mental.
Condolences to the family of this beautiful talented young lady. This just doesn’t seem real for such a beautiful and smart young lady. Will pray for the complete truth to come out. Sometimes things aren’t always what they seem to be.

I can't believe this. I am in shock. She won Miss USA 🇺🇸 in 2019, is a Civil litigator and gorgeous as hell working for Extra ..jumped to her death. Oh Chelsie YOU will NEVER be forgotten. A whole life ahead of her at 30. First it was Regina Kings son last week and Chelsie today. My heart is shattered and will be praying for her momma. Rip🙏 May the Extra family do something in her honor. 💔 I'm going to truly miss her , her quirky laughter, her beautiful personality inside and out. I just wished she could have told someone how and what she was feeling. She was alone. I love you sister. 😢

Hopefully we will all learn to slow down and just live and not live at a pace that is too fast. We also must protect the neurotransmitters in our brain. I take B6 everyday. Rest in peace, Cheslie Kryst.

To me this goes beyond depression. It is the lack of support that exists that it's so prevalent. Many times family members are the ones who affect you the most by not providing any help or empathy and focusing more on criticism. When you are depressed, you will know by the way when you are depressed, seek professional support, do not isolate yourself and if you can get closer to your creator do it!!!. Stay away from ignorant people even if they are your friends or family members these guys sometimes think that you are imagining things and don't have any knowledge about this condition. Surround yourself with people who understand and with people who will support you. Currently we have learned how to suffer in silence and how to tell the world that we are doing ok when we're not. RIP Cheslie Kryst.

I wonder if the pressure of public perfection was too heavy. Accomplish, achieve, succeed, look and be amazing. Leaping from a building is a very public act. Maybe she needed to escape a prison of perfection and outwardly show the reality of her imperfect humanity and grief inside. Either way, my heart hurts hearing this news and goes out to her and her family.
