A popular local Christian Radio personality has died. Q104.9 General Manager Phil Ehlke said Monday afternoon that 47-year-old Kerri Drees died Monday morning at about 9:30 due to complications following surgery.

Drees was a veteran of more than 20 years in the radio business and was most recently the Program Director for mornings on Your Q FM for the past two and a half years. Drees' coworkers say that she was "talented, enthusiastic and bubbly".

"Drees wanted to use her talent and craft to serve the Lord," said Ehlke. Drees is survived by her husband Steve and two daughters.
