Tragic suicide note released from Brooklyn woman who jumped to her death Tuesday

A 24 year old Brooklyn woman who died leaping from the Vessel in Hudson Yards in NYC had a scheduled suicide note released on Instagram

Tuesday, Yocheved Gourarie walked to the highest level of the tourist attraction and jumped, according to police.

This is the note she released on Instagram, a post that was scheduled before the incident:



This is pretty surreal isn’t it? One might say uncomfortable. Jarring. Just close the app now if you want. I guess if you don’t know by now you should probably sit down.

If you’re reading this, I’m gone. Either that or somehow incapacitated in the hospital so I can’t delete this scheduled post. I really hope I’m not though.

I don’t care to go into the reasons why I’m gone, but there are certainly more than thirteen. I scheduled a note to send to my parents posthumously; if they choose to share or publish it you may be privy to more insight. I will leave that choice up to them. Even just publishing this may pain them. I don’t want to do that, I just want to leave my last mark on this world.

All of you have made my life so much more full, brighter, and happier than it would have been without you. Your support, your encouragement, your hugs, your invitations, your smiles, your texts, your tagging me in memes you think I’d find funny.

None of you could have done anything – or done more – to prevent this from happening. You all did your absolute best and for that I am eternally grateful. I hope you can find some comfort in knowing I am no longer in pain.

I love you.
