Actress and acting coach Jeanette Maus has passed away at the age of 39, her fiancé has confirmed.
The talented performer, who was also the voice-over for several characters in the Resident Evil 8: Village game, passed away after an eight month battle with colon cancer.
Known for her work on films My Effortless Brilliance and Your Sister’s Sister, tributes have poured in for the actress after her fiancé, Dusty Warren, confirmed the tragic news on Facebook.
“It is with a shattered-yet grateful-heart that I inform you that Jeanette Maus passed away late last night due to complications of cancer,” Dusty wrote, according to Deadline.
“I’m really sad, but I’m super proud of her. She fought so hard, with tremendous grace and optimism, inspiring myself and I’m sure many of you.”
Jeanette, who had also been diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, had most recently starred in the movie Charm City Kings and also appeared in several short movie projects.
West Hollywood drama school John Rosenfeld Studios, where Jeanette taught, also confirmed that the actress had died on Sunday.
“Our hearts are broken today. As many of you now know, our beloved Jeanette Maus passed on to a better place last night at 11:11,” the statement said.
“The outpouring of support for Dusty and the expressions of grief for Jeanette are a testament to the both of them and the beautiful community that Jeanette and Dusty have helped create.
The touching tribute shared support for Jeanette’s fiancé, who had also starred in Your Sister’s Sister.
The message continued: “Jeanette has been part of the JRS family for almost a decade and became part of the studio’s DNA as a student, teacher, coach and friend. Jeanette was truly an artist, and felt truly grateful to live as an artist.
“She had an indomitable spirit and was hungry to be the best person, the best teacher, the best friend and the best actor she could be. The world lost a force of nature and we will be feeling that for a long time. We are lucky to have known her, and she has touched all of us that knew her.
“The enormous pain I feel right now is soothed by the fact that I get to witness how much you saw her and appreciated her. Because it would have been a shame if you had missed it.
The post continued: “We will make sure that we honor her and we will keep her in our hearts. And Dusty, we are here to hold you up. Jeanette, we love you now and forever.
