Cheslie Kryst Honored During 2022 Miss USA Pageant After Her Death


Cheslie Kryst‘s legacy lives on.
Nearly eight months after the 2019 Miss USA winner’s death at age 30, the annual pageant reflected on her life.  Kryst died in January 2022 by suicide.
“If you’re lucky in life, you get the chance to know someone who lights up a room, makes every moment seem better, and makes you feel important with a simple gesture or a word,” correspondent Christian Murphy said during the Oct. 3 show, per Insider. “That was Cheslie Kryst.”
As Murphy noted, Kryst’s impact on others knew no bounds. “Now, I had the privilege to work alongside her, and her accomplishments were literally endless,” he continued. “Cheslie was crowned Miss USA 2019. And in the words of her family, she embodied love, and served others, whether through her work as an attorney fighting for social justice, as Miss USA, and as a host on Extra. Most importantly as a daughter, sister, friend, mentor, and colleague.”
