Vienna Woman Dies After Falling From D.C. Aqueduct

Jazz Haaren, a 19-year-old from Vienna, died Wednesday (July 24) after falling from a popular photo spot in D.C.

Police said that Haaren “fell off the Alexandria Aqueduct in Georgetown about 11:45 p.m. and landed in a boat moored in the water below… The D.C. Medical Examiner Office said Haaren’s death has been ruled accidental,” according to the Washington Post.

While Tysons Reporter does not know the circumstances around how she fell, the location is a popular spot for photography and views of the Potomac River.

Haaren was a student at Old Dominion University in Norfolk and lead hostess at Sweetwater Tavern in Merrifield, according to her LinkedIn.

Known for her love of animals, she had a “dog blog” and posted many pictures of herself with bunnies, horses, dogs and cats on her Facebook and Instagram accounts.

For her birthday this year, Haaren asked in a Facebook post for people to donate to the Animal Rescue Corps, writing, “I’ve chosen this nonprofit because their mission means a lot to me, and I hope you’ll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me.”

Funeral services will be held Saturday, Aug. 17, at the National Funeral Home (7482 Lee Hwy) in Falls Church. The memorial service is set to start at 11 a.m.
