So devastating. Although her family had hoped that she would be found alive, Jenni’s remains were found in the early hours of Dec. 11 after her tragic plane crash on Dec. 9.
Jenni Rivera‘s family has lost all hope that she could still be alive after Jenni’s remains were found at the crash site on Dec. 11. Jenni died when her plane went down on Dec. 9, killing all seven people on board. The Grammy winning singer was identified by her driver’s license, which was found with her body.
Jenni, who was known as the “Diva of Banda,” is a famous Mexican-American singer, and her life was taken too early in the tragic Learjet plane crash. The plane went down several minutes after take off when it lost contact with air traffic controllers, and it crashed into the mountains in Nuevo Leon state, Mexico.
On Dec. 10, Jenni’s brother Juan Rivera said that he and his family believed that Jenni could still be alive. He said, “In our eyes, we still have faith that our sister will be OK.” However, the following day search and rescue teams recovered 43-year-old Jenni’s remains at the site, reports Zap2it.

Many celebrities have offered their condolences to Jenni’s family, including Eva Longoria and Jennifer Lopez. Jennifer tweeted, “So sad!! Praying for Jenni Rivera’s children and family and the passengers families.”
And in a cruel twist of fate, it is believed that Jenni’s traveling conditions were not as safe as could be, as her Pilot was overworked and the plane had previous history of crashing. So sad.
It is a tragic end to a tragic story, but at least Jenni’s family will have closure, as now they will be able to bury her and say goodbye.
