TikTok Star Cooper Noriega Dead at 19 Years Old

TikTok star Cooper Noriega has died. Noriega was found dead in a mall parking lot near Los Angeles on June 9. His death comes just hours after he posted a video to his 1.7 million TikTok followers with an ominous message about thinking about dying young. Cooper told fans he had been “struggling with addiction since” he “was 9 years old.” The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner has not released a cause of death, which is “pending further investigation."

it sucks how everyone who really cares abt mental health and strive to do better for others end up being the ones who needed help all along
People say people like this just “want attention” but after they die the same people go on to say “we need to do more! how could we have stopped this, etc.” Don’t judge others, listen and be supportive.

When someone dies due to mental health issues, people pity them, wishing there was a way to stop them
But when someone alive suffers from mental health tries seeking for help, people would think they’re seeking for attention instead.
Rest in peace, Cooper 🕊
So young so sad . I'm 57 and I've struggled with depression most of my life it's real and very hard to try n act happy when your so far from it. Just remember that when you take your own life remember those you love and how that makes then feel if you were to take your own life. My heart breaks for his family and friends my deepest condolences 🙏

This breaks my heart. I have been an addict since a young age,I overdosed on fentanyl at age 19 and was told my my family that I died briefly. I have had an ex die from an overdose and I’ve had countless friends from rehab and AA die. It truly hurts my heart to see another young soul pass away. Rest In Peace

My guy was 19 and an advocate for mental health, took me until my mid 20s to understand what was going on in my head. Wise beyond his years, gone too soon. Rest Easy Brother

Struggling with addiction since 9 years old?! I'm sorry to hear that. It's hard for us to find help without being judged poorly and mistreated. It's getting better due to research and education regarding addiction and mental health .. but we still have quite a ways to go.
Rip 🙏 🕊 hope he found peace . My condolences to his remaining family.
I never heard of him but this is seriously heartbreaking! Condolences to his family. RIP.

The hardest part about being strong.... Is nobody ever asks you if you're okay. Rest in paradise bro.
I've struggled with addiction and mental health issues, anxiety that is, for years and years and it is most certainly an extremely hard road, but still a road you can take and win!
My heart is broken! One of my favorite TT’s! As an addict in recovery myself, Coopers death makes me want to open a rehab for teens & young adults in his honor ❣️ Rest Easy Friend
I don't use tiktok that much, I don't know this man, but I send my condolences to the family and those who grieve his death. Just by this video, I can tell he had a warm heart and cared for others. So sad to see him go.

If you haven't been through it personally there's that one touch of experience that makes helping others who also struggle that much more relatable,
So if you haven't been homeless, you really don't know the struggle,
Or with anything else,
it's heartbreaking, he cared enough about others because he knew how it felt, and he couldn't get the same help they need. 💔🕊
Addiction since 9 YEARS OLD. Man sounds like he had a rough life.
R.I.P Young man. Millions of us have struggled with the fight. If there's a heaven you will be there.

This era is just so tragic. I dont think even the crack epidemic at its height was as deadly as the opioid epidemic of the 2010s/2020s

I'm getting chills because I'm suicidal and his age and despite him literally going out of his way to express how serious this was to him it wasn't enough
As someone who struggled with addiction for 15 years , my heart breaks for this young man . There is light at the end of the tunnel if you can find the help you need !

RIP beloved Cooper N ❤️

Even though I don't know him, it's sad that so many people especially young people suffers from mental health issues and a lot of people don't even take our mental health seriously, they always come up with excuses to neglect us until the day we ended up ending ourselves or others in order for people to take it seriously.

I don’t use TikTok so I’m not familiar with Cooper, but my deepest sympathy and condolences go out to his family and friends. That’s really sad that he never got to fulfill his dream of helping others overcome addictions. God bless his kind soul and I pray that he is at peace 🙏🕊
Please read this! I had a friend who always «joked» about dying young and said it quite often. I didn’t think much of it, but a year later at the age of only 21, he hanged himself with a garden hose in his backyard. If someone tells you this many times, take it seriously.

I just got out of a mental hospital almost a week ago and it's hard but you got to keep your head up .
I literally saw him on some podcast where they made fun of him for wearing a crop top and everyone was livid at the way they treated him

About 4 to 5 days ago I remember seeing one of his very last tiktoks promoting the discord for mental health since I had a feeling to check up on what he was doing after the podcast

It's absolutely heart breaking to think the man I saw promoting something to better mental health die so young... RIP Cooper, you meant a lot to a lot of people

That's so sad. I hope some good can come from this. Too many wonderful young people not getting the help they need.
He knew his body was shutting down, he knew his time would come to a end soon, and that’s the sad part. Rest In Peace💛💜
Was just in the middle of a small mental breakdown contemplating _something_ again. Then by chance this came up and switched my mood drastically. I never knew that someone three years older than me would do it. I don't even know how to feel anymore.
I honestly felt this one harder than I expected and I don’t normally feel it. The kid had a good heart. He always supported people

I’ve suffered from mental illness since I was 13. Don’t nobody truly understand what’s going on in another’s mind or what they’re going through unless they been through it too. I’ve attempted suicide on more than one occasion not proud at all about it. I’m finally getting the help I need and support I need to do better. If your having suicidal thoughts please talk to someone reach out for help it is there.

Oh, oh no... too young...mental illness is a monster, so is addiction. I've struggled my entire life with mental illness, depression anxiety and ptsd, and was an addict for 25yrs... I've been clean and sober almost 4yrs and it's a blessing I wish everyone could know. This poor young man...I'll pray for his family. 💙☮🌻 I pray he has found peace.

I don't really keep up with tik tokers but seeing that Cooper Noriega passed away is shocking. I literally saw a clip of him a week ago opening up about his mental health struggles and addiction, opening up about his journey to get better. This really hit me cause I suddenly remembered that clip. Sending my condolences to his family, friends and loved ones!!
