Who was Jeanette Maus? 'Resident Evil 8: Village' star and acting coach dies of colon cancer at 39
'It is with a shattered-yet grateful-heart that I inform you that Jeanette Maus passed away late last night,' Jeanette's fiance Dusty Warren said
Actress Jeanette Maus died Sunday night, January 24, at the age of 39 after suffering from colon cancer, her fiancé said. Maus’ fiance Dusty Warren issued a statement on Facebook that read, “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. 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.” The video game actor, voice-over actor, film star, as well as acting teacher and coach, was also suffering from Crohn's disease, but her health issues did not stop her from doing what she loved.
During her long battle, Jeanette's fiance had also set up a GoFundMe page after her diagnosis last year, which raised over $53,000 to help with her treatment.
Who was Jeanette Maus?
Jeanette Maus was known for her role in the video game 'Resident Evil 8: Village', as well as featuring in movies, like ‘Charm City Kings’ and ‘Your Sister's Sister’. She made her appearance in a lot of short films. Maus was also behind the writing and production of the short ‘Secret Island Adventure: Ripple One’. She was strongly associated with John Rosenfeld Studios, who took Instagram to express their thoughts on her demise. The social media page stated, “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 outpouring of support for Dusty and the expressions of grief for Jeanette are a testament to both of them and the beautiful community that Jeanette and Dusty have helped create. 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. 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."
