UPDATE: The family has released the following statement via the GoFundMe page they had running:

Dear Friends,
Thank you for your continued prayers, donations, and support. Unfortunately, Jiwon, beloved daughter, sister, and friend has gone on to a better place. Our family thanks you at this time for respecting our privacy. We are currently planning a memorial service to honor Jiwon and will post further details as soon as possible.
The NY Post notes: "Her cellphone was tracked to the George Washington Bridge, prompting speculation she had jumped."
