Life support of the Home and Away actress who's been clinging to life since losing her entire family in a Boxing Day vehicle crash has now been switched off.

Meanwhile, back at the hospital where Jessica was still in coma, friends and family surrounded Jessica from her hospital bed during and after the funeral, saying it was important she had support.

Falkholt's parents Lars and Vivian were killed instantly in the crash with her sister Annabelle passing away three days later in hospital.

The 29-year-old actress and her family were involved in a fatal crash on Boxing Day, where her parents, Vivian and Lars, were instantly killed.

ESPN reported that Davis was in hot pursuit for Gruden with a persuasive offer that included an ownership stake in the Raiders. Several assistant coaches have already been hired by the Raiders in anticipation of Gruden's hiring.

Paul Ponticello, the brother of Vivian, said he "always thought we would grow old together", according to The Daily Telegraph.

Jessica Falkholt's co-stars have paid tribute to the actress after her life support machine was turned off on Thursday.

Whitehall was reportedly driving home from a methadone clinic at the time of the crash, which allegedly saw him veer into the other lane and hit the Falkholt family.

"Everything that the community expects us to do to keep them safe has not worked in this instance that's, to be brutally honest and frank, the situation we're all facing", she told 2GB Radio on Friday. I will always miss you.

In the aftermath of the crash, the director of soon-to-be released Australian film Harmony, in which Falkholt has the starring role, described her as an incredible actress who was "on her way to stardom".

A family friend said, "They were a very close family and had been on a quiet getaway", according to The Telegraph as reported by Sydney Morning Herald.
