Matt Hughes, who battled severe depression his entire life, died of complications from a reported suicide attempt, leaving behind a wife and two young sons.

Hughes, who joined Storm Chasers in 2009, passed away this past May. He was only 30. No additional motive or details of his tragic death have been published.

Wednesday’s night episode of Storm Chasers paid tribute to Matt in an episode named “Dedication.” It was a fitting title for a man who will be greatly missed.


So sad to hear about Matt. My thoughts and prayers are with all his loved ones. I know from past experience the questions you asks yourself and thinking maybe you missed a sign that they gave you to their depression. With time it gets easier but you never stop questioning why. R.I.P. Matt. we will miss you
