“Cory” is Cory Weston, who was Lee’s husband. The couple had three young children together.
Lee was best known for winning the 2015 “Tough Enough” competition, which earned her a 1-year contract with WWE. The promotion assigned her to their developmental brand NXT. Lee was released after her contract with WWE expired.

No tweet or amount of words can bring back this beautiful human, but all of my heart goes out to @TheWestinBlake & their family. Sara Lee will be missed greatly. ♥️
