Sending in wishes for a happy heavenly birthday, the beauty pageant industry remembered the former Miss USA Cheslie Kryst on 28th April 2022, celebrating her and her beautiful life. Marking her 31st birth anniversary, here’s remembering the late beauty queen Cheslie Corrinne Kryst.

Kryst was an American television presenter, model, and beauty pageant titleholder who was crowned Miss USA 2019. As Miss USA, she represented the United States at the Miss Universe 2019 competition and finished in the top ten. Outside of pageantry, Kryst was a licensed attorney and had as a correspondent for Extra from October 2019.

After finishing from high school in Jackson, Michigan, Kryst moved to Columbia, South Carolina, to attend the University of South Carolina's Honors College. She graduated from the Darla Moore School of Business with a bachelor's degree in marketing and human resource management in 2013, where she was also a member of the Alpha Lambda Delta honour society, the Gamecocks women's track and field team, and mock trial.

After completing her undergraduate degree, Kryst attended Wake Forest University School of Law in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where she earned a Juris Doctor and a Master of Business Administration in 2017. Kryst was also an attorney and had worked for Extra as a journalist since October of this year. She was nominated for two Daytime Emmy Awards for her work on Extra. She was also the creator of the 'White Collar Glam' fashion blog, which aimed to help women dress professionally for white-collar employment.



On 31st January 2022, the pageant industry was taken aback with the shocking and sudden demise of the diva as she leaped to her death from her high-rise condominium building in Midtown on Sunday morning and was found dead in the street below.

Even though, Cheslie is not in the world today, her great light was and will always be the one that inspires others around the world with her beauty and strength. Cheslie embodied love and served others, whether through her work as an attorney fighting for social justice, as Miss USA and as a host on EXTRA, but, most importantly, as a daughter, sister, friend, mentor and colleague and her impact will definitely live on.
