I remember her indeed. I met her once on a social occasion in the mid-to-late 1970s and was awed by her beauty. Unfortunately this picture doesn't begin to do her justice. She could have gone anywhere in life with her looks. Such an ultimate tragedy.

A friend -- I can't remember who -- dated Jane. She was one hottie. People with mental problems do tend to die younger -- by about 20 years. But they die of other diseases like diabetes or heart disease. The most likely mortality concern was suicide, or in some cases other physical injuries that resulted from the mental condition.

In any event, in 1992 Jane Hoyt was in her early 40s...way too young an age to die.

From the Oregonian, October 21, 1992, about Jane Hoyt's death.

A full discussion of the bipolar disease that caused her to jump from the Hawthorne Bridge.

Sad that another was lost to such a nightmare, mental health problems are truly a pain..Ive had a few things going for years, including PTSD, and depression, before PTSD was a bandwagon for all. She was very pretty... may she RIP....
