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 the 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."

"And Dusty, we are here to hold you up. Jeanette, we love you now and forever."
