NOVI, Mich. (FOX 2) – It's been more than two months since Jessica Star had finished her life. For the family of Jessica, the process of sorrow has just begun.
Jessica ended her life on December 12, two months after she went to the eye surgery to correct her vision. Her husband, Dan Rose, says it was a long battle that he fights for his little children.
"I try to focus on our children, we have 5 and 3 year olds, which of course are not enough. They are trying to figure out what has happened and where it is." She was here one time and she went on, "Dan said." We had conversations that Jessica was in heaven and was no longer with us. "
Dan believes that this is the hardest thing he has ever done in his life.
Through a series of videos and a 30-page suicide note, Dan learns more about Jessica's recent weeks.
"It's been exactly 3 weeks since my surgery. It was emotional, "said Jessica.
Dan shares these videos and her messages now because it's Jessica's emotions in her words.
" It's important to share this because everything I say is not as important as that Jessica Something going directly to Jessica will be stronger than anything coming from me or from any of her family members, "said Dan.
Dan says that Jessica was his friend, the love of his life. But Jessica in the video is not a woman he loved for 17 years.
"Before the procedure, Jessica was completely normal, very healthy. There was no depression, no antidepressants, there was no major problem," he said. "I want to make it absolutely clear. Jessica was incredibly normal – there was not a long battle with depression. Again, there were no antidepressants, there was no abuse of alcohol, there was nothing."
Dan said he was grateful for
"I want to thank them for their support. I know how people felt about Jess." Jess had a wonderful spirit and wonderful spirit. "
"I know that the audience loved her, because the person you saw on the TV was Jessica in real life." Jessica was a normal girl. She could honestly take care that she was on TV. She told me every day: "I'm not Tom Cruise, I do not make a million dollars a year. She had all those little jokes she would say.
Dan says now, ten weeks after Jessica's suicide, to raise awareness of the side effects of eye surgery. On October 11, Jessica carried out Operation ReLEx SMILE LASIK. She knew that something was wrong in the days and weeks after the operation and went to different doctors in their opinion.
I reached forearm and grabbed her behind the elbows, and I drew her to her and we looked straight at the eye of each other and I said what had happened? "All these doctors tell you the same thing – what are you trying to find?"
"She looked at me and she said that Dan is how my eyes and my brain are not communicating as they are used to. I am not visualizing things like it once was," said Dan
Now he takes his story, and Jessica is public.
"We want to help someone. If we can save one life and at least make someone know, even a man – if a man receives this procedure – I want my wife to just escape h for signs, "Dan said.
The National Institutes of Health has studied the procedure and found the success of the operation is more than 96% that led to 20/20 stars. This is what Jess hoped for.
In the notes and videos she left behind, Jessica was clear and knew the decision she had taken. She has very clearly stated that what she is going to do is the result of a decision she has taken to have an operation.
