Cheslie Kryst Parent
Cheslie Kryst is an American model and television correspondent. She was recently crowned Miss USA 2019. She represented the United States in Miss Universe 2019, and finished in the top ten. Cheslie is married to John Kryst, an actor. The couple has two children.
At the time of her death, Cheslie was living with high-functioning depression – a type of depression that doesn’t affect a person’s ability to function normally. Her symptoms first surfaced when she was in her early twenties. She didn’t seek treatment for depression until her daughter attempted suicide. In fact, she went to therapy to deal with the depression and seek mental health care.
Cheslie’s mother, Alice Simpkins, spoke on “Red Table Talk” in the wake of her daughter’s death. The mother of the former Miss USA and Miss North Carolina revealed that her daughter suffered from depression in her early twenties. She also said that Cheslie had tried suicide before.
Kryst was bubbly and social on social media, which is one of the reasons she didn’t share her struggles with depression with her mother. In fact, she had shared tips for World Mental Health Day in a recent post. Simpkins later released a statement about her daughter’s death.
Rodney Kryst is a Polish-American bodybuilder and a former model. He and his wife April Simpkins had four children together. Rodney and April were married for four years before Cheslie was born. Cheslie Simpkins’ stepfather, David Simpkins, and her grandmother were friends for years and cherished her in different ways. The three siblings have spoken publicly about Cheslie on social media, and they spoke about Cheslie’s legacy.
On Monday, her body was found near The Orion apartment building on West 42nd Street in Manhattan. The body was found at around 7.15am on a snow-covered sidewalk. The family was shocked, and the police are still investigating the death. The police say there is no motive and it was a suicide.
Rodney Kryst, Cheslie Kryst’s father, says that family dysfunction led to the suicide. Rodney Kryst claims that his daughter had a history of depression. He claims that she was not a happy person, but that she was a good mother.
Kryst’s parents are now dealing with the loss of their daughter. They have talked to a grief counselor and a psychiatrist. They have also spent time together, watching their daughter’s smiles. The memories have helped the family bond and move on. It is still not easy, but it is possible for Kryst’s parents to cope.
