Jennifer Aniston took to Instagram on Thursday to mourn the death of a The Morning Show camera assistant, Gunnar Mortenson.
“This past week we suddenly and tragically lost Gunnar Mortenson,” Aniston wrote on her Instagram story. “As a camera assistant, he was so skilled and dedicated to his job. In memory of Gunnar, a page has been set up to help raise funds for his wife, Keely, and his 2-year-old son, Lars during this difficult time. We are going to miss you Gunnar 💔”

Aniston attached two photos of Mortenson, one with his wife and son and another with just his son, and the link to Keely’s GoFundMe. The fundraiser is organized by the Los Angeles chapter of the International Cinematographers Guild, and explains that Mortenson died on “Monday, July 4, from injuries sustained from a motorcycle accident.”
