Jas Waters

Admired screenwriter and journalist Jas Walters passed away in June. Know as JasFly by many, the writer and journalist’s death by suicide left many writers and those in the entertainment world reeling. The This Is Us writer was only 39 at the time of her passing.

Getting her start in the business doing music journalism and hip-hop coverage, Waters wrote for TV shows, publications and films across the entertainment industry. Her work spanned Vibe, the shows Kidding and Hood Adjacent, and the 2019 film What Men Want starring Taraji P. Henson. Fellow music journalist Sowmya Krishnamurthy shared her grief over Waters’ passing saying, “If you are in the industry, you know @JasFly… a motivating energy and dope woman in hip-hop. Today hurts.”
