“This past week we suddenly and tragically lost Gunnar Mortensen,” Aniston wrote in her Instagram Stories, alongside a picture of Gunnar and his family. “One of the bright lights on our @themorningshow set. As 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.”
