Maus also had Crohn’s disease and contracted COVID-19 in 2020, her fiance Dusty Warren said in a GoFundMe campaign.
Warren confirmed Maus’ passing in a post on Facebook, which was seen by Deadline.
“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,” Warren wrote. “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.”
Maus worked with John Rosenfeld Studios on a number of projects, and the company paid tribute to Maus in a post on Instagram.
“Our hearts are broken today. 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,” the group said. “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.”
