James Hubley died by suicide Friday after battling bouts of depression. He was 15 years old.

Hubley is the son of city councillor Allan Hubley of Kanata South.

There has been no official statement from the family, however an outpouring of condolences have surfaced online.

Coun. Hubley thanked everyone for their support on Twitter.

This is the second prominent family in Ottawa to lose a teen to suicide in a year.

Last November, the death of 14-year-old Daron Richardson made headlines across the country.

She is the daughter of local NHL personality Luke Richardson.
