When you think of someone being a professional storm chaser, you probably think of the danger and risk of life and limb involved in getting so close to tornados and hurricanes. But Storm Chaser Matt Hughes wasn’t the victim of mother nature when he passed away on May 26th. What happened to the team member featured on the National Geographic Show?

According to rumors and online reports, the thirty year old died from complications from an attempted suicide attempt. No conclusive motive for his death was released. But the saddest thing is that he left behind a wife Kendra and two sons, Hunter and Collin.

On Wednesday’s night episode of Storm Chasers they paid tribute to Matt Hughes in the episode named “Dedication.” And there is a fund set up for his two young sons right here. – http://www.CozineMemorial.com

  1. Greetings, I’m Myrtis and I’m really glad that I
    stumbled on wordpress.com. I have a brief question that I’d like to ask
    if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your mind before writing. Lately I just can’t get my head clear so that I’m completely ready to concentrate on my ideas.
    I love writing once I get into it, but in most cases I feel as if I end
    up wasting the first ten to 15 minutes forcing myself
    to concentrate. Do you have any suggestions or tips?


  2. Thank you and I will make sure to get on to your website sooner or later


  3. Thanks for revealing your ideas. Another thing is that learners have an option between government student loan as well as a private student loan where its easier to choose student loan consolidation than with the federal student loan.

    One thing is that while you are searching for a student loan you may find that you’ll want a cosigner. There are many situations where this is correct because you could find that you do not possess a past credit standing so the bank will require that you’ve someone cosign the loan for you. Good post.

    Thanks for this article. I would also like to convey that it can often be hard if you are in school and simply starting out to initiate a long history of credit. There are many college students who are just trying to live and have a lengthy or beneficial credit history can occasionally be a difficult issue to have.

    I have learned many important things by means of your post. I might also like to express that there can be situation that you will have a loan and never need a cosigner such as a Federal government Student Aid Loan. When you are getting credit through a standard loan provider then you need to be prepared to have a co-signer ready to enable you to. The lenders are going to base their very own decision on the few elements but the greatest will be your credit standing. There are some loan companies that will likewise look at your work history and come to a decision based on that but in almost all cases it will be based on on your ranking.

    One other issue is when you are in a scenario where you don’t have a cosigner then you may really want to try to make use of all of your money for college options. You will find many grants and other free college funding that will supply you with money to aid with college expenses. Many thanks for the post.


  4. Myself and my husband just wanted to express our sorrow for the loss of such a wonderfully brave individual. No matter what we had going on in our lives, we always took the time out of our busy schedule to watch StormChaser’s. It always cherred us up, because Matt always had to have a ready smile on hand. He will be greatly missed, and his family and friends will remain in our thoughts and prayers.

    Bless you and yours, Mr. & Mrs. Ronald Walker
    Billingsley, Al.


  5. god bless matt and his family. Matt loved his wife and kids dearly and by know means did he want to hurt them. But when your depressed you have this black cloud that follows you everywhere no matter what you do it gets heavier and thicker. He knew he had alot of positive things in his life. But when your that upset u see more of the bad and the negitve gets bigger and bigger where it over powers the good. This is when you think of how to do it. Once you decide you feel differnt like a sence of peace. Matt had already mad that decision. Before the show and that is why he was so happy and excited he knew this was his last one. The last thing matt wanted to do was hurt his family, friends, coworkers. He just didnt think there was another way to get rid of the black cloud that follows. It’s so heavy and thick. Please for all those people who was blessed to have never of had this cloud. Plese understand sometimes it seems like theres no other way. For all the ones who know the cloud you are not alone out there and even though the negitive is sooo strong beat it fight it. U are needed and what helped me was I realised ( It is what it is) stand in the mirror and scream real loud ( F— It) Im gonna beat this the cloud will start to fade not right away but the problems that was huge are not gonna be as big any more. God bless everyone matt is at peace. Matt’s family it wasnt your falt and you did all you could do it doesnt make sence and the the answer to WHY is he couldnt fight the “BLACK CLOUD” anymore. Matt lives on through his kids. keep the memories of the good times alive and understand he wasnt trying to hurt anyone.


  6. It would have been better for all if Hughes’ death had been attributed to undisclosed causes. That would have been understood as respecting privacy. Without all the information people assume the worst. They think he probably committed suicide and had been suffering for years with mental depression and had been on antidepressants or had been on them thus re-igniting the controversy of whether they are actually safe or not. It’s estimated that 42,000 people who were taking or had been taking psychiatric drugs die each year. Hugh’s death would be one more. The psychiatric pharmaceutical industry complains that not enough people have been diagnosed with depression. But how many people are still alive for not having been forced or coerced onto these dangerous drugs? The industry doesn’t care. The practitioner walks away and prescribes more psych drugs to people not fully informed about the dangers of taking them.
