Fitness influencer and mother-of-four Mila De Jesus has tragically passed away aged 35. 

The Brazillian influencer, who was living in Boston, shot to fame after going viral for an extreme weight loss transformation.

Six years ago, De Jesus underwent a major weight loss surgery, which she documented on her social media.

The content creator was also well known for her makeup tutorials, which she posted to her YouTube channel, where she had over 100,000 subscribers on the platform.

Devastatingly, it has been disclosed that De Jesus has died.

De Jesus’ children took to Instagram to share the saddening news, writing: “I, Anna Clara, am posting this condolence note. We are very sad to hear of the passing of our beautiful mother. We appreciate all the prayers and condolences. Continue to pray for us, thank you.”

Followers, fans, and friends alike have been quick to offer their tributes to the late star.

“Root follower here, since the beginning of YouTube,” wrote one heartbroken fan. “So sad, my God a lot of light, Mila. Rest in peace.”

Another added: “All my most sincere condolences.”

Eduarda Gaia, a businesswoman and long-time friend of the influencer, also mourned De Jesus’ death.

“I will remember our last conversation on the phone forever!” she said in a statement, per local media. “I love you so much, friend.”

De Jesus’ cause of death is yet to officially be confirmed.

Prior to her passing, the content creator took to Instagram and shared a snap of herself sitting in the snow, seemingly in good health.

Months before her passing, De Jesus announced to her fans that she had been suffering from psoriasis since July.

According to the NHS, psoriasis is a skin condition that causes flaky patches of skin which form scales.

“It’s been three months dealing with this situation, 80% of my body is affected,” she informed her Instagram followers.

“Juggling doctors, medications, ointments, and taking a deep breath.”

The influencer rarely spoke of her skin condition but continued to post photos and videos of herself and family members.

Last year, De Jesus also celebrated her weight loss journey by sharing two snaps side by side in which her incredible transformation can be seen.

Alongside the post, she penned: “Thirteen years between one photo and another. Six years since a decision that changed my life in various aspects.

“On one side, the 22-year-old Mila, and on the other, the 35-year-old Mila. Look at how much we’ve changed, how we’ve grown, and what we’ve learned.

“Proud, girl, proud.”

De Jesus leaves behind her husband George Kowszik – whom she married just four months ago – and four children.
