Waters, who joined This Is Us for its second season and worked as a story editor on both seasons of Kidding, has died. No cause of death was given. "Jas was absolutely brilliant and had so many stories still to tell. She made an indelible mark on our show and my heart breaks for her loved ones," said This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman. "Jas was a one of a kind voice and an integral part of our writing team on Kidding," added Kidding creator Dave Holstein. "This is a devastating loss for those who knew her and lived in her light. One of my favorite lines of hers is resonating especially loud with me today: Our scars do not mean we are broken. They are proof we are healed." UPDATE: Waters' death was ruled a suicide.
