“On September 12, we lost Jessi. We’re still reeling and we will be for a while,” the band said in a statement. The band also announced a YouCaring memorial fundraiser

It was announced in December that Zazu had been diagnosed with cervical cancer.

She went on to inspire others with #AintAfraid T-shirts and created art for Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center’s oncology department.

Those Darlins played a sassy, raucous form of indie rock and toured heavily from 2009 to 2016. They recorded three LPs.
