“We are feeling devastated. It’s a devastation to the family,” Rivera’s brother, Pedro Rivera Jr., told E! News. “We don’t know how to thank you for all the love you gave to Jenni and to all the family. It is just so special to have you guys as fans.”


  1. May her soul rest in peace.

  2. May they all rest in peace. I've read so much about the airworthiness of the Learjet which was built in 1969, falsifying records and why a 78 year old was allowed to fly the plane. Sad!

  3. Oh dear
    sad, sad

  4. So sad. May her soul rest in peace.
