Due to her involvement with the Regional Mexican music genre, JENNI Rivera dominated the Latin Billboard charts in the 1990s and the early 2000s.

Her tragic death on December 9, 2012, in Mexico has left many curious as to what transpired.

Who was Jenni Rivera?

Dolores Janney “Jenni” Rivera Saavedra, a well-known singer, was born in Long Beach, California, on July 2, 1969.

After her album Si Quieres Verme Llorar was released in the late 1990s, Rivera initially gained notoriety. After that, she released 10 more studio albums before she passed away.

In addition, Rivera collaborated with a number of well-known Latin musicians, such as Tito El Bambino and Marco Antonio Sols.

The four-time Grammy nominee sold more than 25 million records before she passed away.

What was Jenni Rivera’s cause of death?

On December 9, just hours after performing to a packed house in Monterrey, Mexico, Rivera boarded an aircraft for Toluca in order to make another scheduled concert.

She was travelling on a Learjet 25, but it crashed in northern Mexico before it could reach its destination.

In addition to two crew members, the aircraft carried five passengers, including Rivera’s attorney Mario Macias Pacheco, makeup artist Jacobo Yebale, publicist Arturo Rivera, and stylist Jorge Armando Sanchez Vasquez. All five passengers died at the scene.

Although an investigation was launched after the collision because the damage was reportedly so severe, the Los Angeles Daily News reports that not much is known about it.

Investigations ruled out weather as the cause, and Mexico’s General Civil Aviation Administration later cited a number of additional scenarios, the Los Angeles Daily News reports. These included a sudden loss of control caused by a malfunctioning horizontal stabiliser or the plane’s age.

According to the Los Angeles Times, a Los Angeles judge entered a default judgement against the plane’s owner, Starwood Management Inc., and granted the families of Rivera’s entourage a $70 million payout as a result of the tragedy.

“It provides an element of closure for the families that Starwood has been held responsible for this tragedy,” the families attorney, Paul R Kiesel, said after the verdict.

“Now, the next chapter begins to recover the substantial damages caused by this loss.”
