Mexican-American singer and television personality Jenni Rivera was confirmed dead by her brother, Gustavo, and the National Transportation Safety Board following a plane crash Sunday (Dec. 9). Her makeup artist, Jacob Yebale, was one of the reported passengers on the plane with Rivera when it crashed, leaving no survivors.
After boarding the plane, Yebale posted on Instagram what is likely the last photo taken of the singer alive.
“We getting back To Mexico City…jenni Rivera, Arturo, Gigi and Me…Los Amooo!” he posted with the photo on Sunday.
Also with her on the plane were her attorney Mario Macias, publicist Arturo Rivera (no relation) and stylist Jorge Sanchez, per Fox News.
The Learjet 25 crashed after taking off from Monterrey, Mexico, and the plane’s wreckage was found later in the day.
“They’re telling us that bodies were everywhere,” Rivera’s brother, Gustavo, told reporters Sunday. “We’re just going to try to go bring back whatever we can.”
