Jessica’s cousin, Sarah Wessling, told the outlet on the day she died, she reportedly had worked a regular day at her practice where she was a naturopathic physician.

She returned home to visit with her mother and aunt. Sarah said at some point Jessica left the room to go to the bathroom and never came back out.

When the family went to check on her they found she had reportedly collapsed on the floor. Attempts by the aunt and EMT to revive her were not successful.

For those that might not recall, Campbell played the role of Tammy Metzler in the comedy “Election” across from Reese Witherspoon, Matthew Broderick and Chris Klein.

She would then go on to guest star on a variety of hit TV shows like “Freaks and Geeks” and star in “The Safety of Objects” and “Junk” before walking away from a career in Hollywood.
