The news of Jessica Campbell's passing was shared by her cousin, Sarah Wessling, who revealed that on December 29, 2020, Campbell "suddenly and unexpectedly passed away". The results of her autopsy are still unknown.

On the day of her death, Jessica, a naturopath, visited her mother and aunt after work to see patients.

Her aunt went to check on her and found her collapsed on the floor.

She tried to revive the former actress but she could not get her to respond.

Jessica Campbell had become a naturopathic physician and had her own practice in Washington state.

When her aunt made a decision to check on her, they found her lying on the floor and unconscious.

"So heart broken to hear this".

The family says Jessica had been complaining of congestion and felt like she was getting a cold, but they didn't think it was COVID. Working with Jessica on Election was such a pleasure.

And another fan called her "phenomenal" in the role of Tammy Metzler. "I'm sending all my love to Jessica's family and loved ones", the 44-year-old actress said.

Campbell gained celebrity status when she starred alongside Reese Witherspoon and Matthew Broderick in the role of Tammy Metzler in the 1999 movie Election, which was a satire on high school politics.

She played Chris' younger sister in the popular film. "She could always be counted on as the instigator of, or at the very least a willing accomplice to, various forms of mischief and hijinks".

Following Freaks and Geeks, Campbell went on to star opposite Glenn Close in The Safety Of Objects.

She went on to star in more films including The Safety of Objects and Junk before she chose to quit her acting career.

A GoFundMe page was set up to raise funds to help with expenses and to provide for her little boy.

The family told the site that Jessica has been cremated and 'they are planning a memorial'.

Freaks and Geeks creator Judd Apatow was among those donating, adding $5,000 to the cause.
