His death was confirmed by Senior Pastor Greg Laurie, who leads a church in southern California.
"Jarrid loved the Lord and had a servant's heart. He was alive, positive, and always serving and helping others," he wrote on the church's website.
"Jarrid has also repeatedly dealt with depression and is very open about his ongoing struggle," Mr. Laurie added. "She wants to help those who are dealing with suicidal thoughts especially."
Another church pastor, Jason Powell, also paid tribute.
Shortly before his death, Wilson tweeted about the funeral service of a "Jesus-loving woman who took her own life".
"Loving Jesus does not always cure the thoughts of suicide. Loving Jesus does not always cure depression," he wrote.
"But that doesn't mean Jesus doesn't give us companionship and comfort," he continued. "He always does that."
A fundraiser to support Wilson's family raised more than $ 42,000 (£ 34,000) on Wednesday.
