hmmm, just wondering why he'd jump, I mean how freakin selfish & nasty to do to people seeing the aftermath.Whatever happened to just overdosing......not dramatic enough? eeew,sorry,but such a selfish act, moreso by subjecting others(on the street,in the vacinity,etc) to hafta see that. Couldn't deal with his own life,so chooses to force others,even strangers, to live with his seeing rather violent death?

I'm as saddened by the insensitive, down-right cruel thoughts people have about this as I am for Marie and her loss. Have you people never faced serious hurt and pain in your lives?

Go figure.

Didn't Marie think suicide was an option at one time?

Even wrote a book about it.

Poor kid.

It's official only trash comment on TMZ. This woman loss her son in an horrific way and all you can talk about is what you don't like about her. My prayers goes out to the Osmond Family and her son's soul.

As a 5th generation Mormon (no longer believe in that) I can tell you that that religion causes undue stress on its members. I have three suicides in my family and there have been many more amongst friends in church wards.

The emphasis is to be as perfect as possible, suck everything up, and keep a smile on your face. Did you know Utah has the highest rate of prescription drug abuse?

Even my own relatives tell me they're not stressed, and I'm wrong, and yet they're on one or a combination of: ulcer meds, antidepressants and Xanax. They're all in denial. That whole religion is in denial.

To take shots at his mother at a time like this is despicable. And comparing them to the Jacksons? Be realistic, no arrests, no freaks, just hard work, without sensationalism. A big family that seems to be there for each other, supporting each other. My heart goes out to her and her entire family.

I don't agree with her and I hate the Mormon church, but I can empathize. It's sad. No parent should ever have to bury her child. It should be the other way around.

Gosh, some of the comments here are harsh. My condolences to the Osmond family, how devastating for them. Suicide is just so hard on the family left behind, it is difficult to ever fully recover from the shock and loss. RIP for her son.
