Did she die? :(

No she is alive. The character JJ got a higher job and it was mandatory for her to go. The reason the actress left the show was because her contract ended. Also Emily Prentis's time in each episode was cut because of the actresse's contract but you can't really tell.

It all started on the first episode of the sixth season. JJ acts as chief negotiator to convince the unsub "The Prince of Darkness" to let go of Ellie (a girl he kidnapped). She's so successful that upon returning to the Quantico JJ is promoted/transfered to liaison with the Pentagon (that happens in the next episode named JJ).
As the other answer you already got states A.J. Cook's contract (the actress that played JJ) was not renewed by the producers of the show. http://insidetv.ew.com/2010/06/14/criminal-minds-d...
However since her character wasn't killed there's always the chance she could return (I'll keep my fingers crossed) http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2010/06/cr...Source(s): http://www.tv.com/criminal-minds/show/33484/episod... http://insidetv.ew.com/2010/06/14/criminal-minds-d... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2010/06/cr... http://www.aceshowbiz.com/news/view/00033386.html

I don't recall the show ever explaining why JJ is no longer on the team. Guess I missed something. However, Aisha is not filling the gap created by the lost of the previous ladies on the team. My time for watching the show, except for reruns, is limited.

jj ended up shooting the dogs, she was really shaken up because she saw the remains of the body of the woman who was torn apart by the dogs and the fact that reid was taken and that she was not covering him.
