Jay Cutler Classic Winner Mikayla Kingman Passes Away at 23

Mikayla Kingman a Jay Cutler Classic Figure overall winner, has passed this week.

In 2017, Mikayla placed first in three categories and was the overall champion for two categories at the NPC Jay Cutler Classic Figure.

Mikayla was only 23 years old when she took her own life. Just a week before, Luke Sandoe, a Pro Bodybuilder also took his life at the age of 30.

Unfortunately suicide is common in society. With a problem, there is always a solution. There are so many people that can help before one decides to make a permanent decision.

Just the day before Mikayla passed, she made a post on her Instagram page that said “Life needs no filter even on its darkest days.” This post was an obvious cry for help and her showing that she was going through a tough time.
