Jeanette Maus, actress and teacher / actor coach whose credits include Charme City Kings and Lynn Shelton’s Your sister’s sister and My effortless glow, died Sunday evening of colon cancer. She was 39 years old.
The news was confirmed on social media by her fiancé, Dusty Warren.
“It is with a broken heart but grateful that I inform you that Jeanette Maus passed away late last night from cancer,” Warren wrote on Facebook. “I’m really sad, but I’m very proud of her. She fought so hard, with incredible grace and optimism, inspiring me and I’m sure many of you.
Maus appeared in the 2020s Charme City Kings and other features such as My Fiona and Rejected, with the late Shelton’s Your Sister sister and My effortless glow, the latter of which Maus also co-wrote. She has also appeared in numerous short films and has written and produced the short film Secret Island Adventure: Ripple One and directed and produced the short film I am here. The last two date from 2018.
Maus also had a long association with John Rosenfeld Studios, whose owner paid tribute to him on Instagram.
“Our hearts are broken today,” wrote John Rosenfeld. “Jeanette has been part of the JRS family for almost a decade and has become 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 that she could be. The world has lost a force of nature and we will feel it for a long time.
