Beloved Cornish ‘Supernova,’ Actress Jeanette Maus Dies at 39

by Richard E.T. White


The Cornish College of the Arts Theater community mourns the passing of alum Jeanette Maus, of the class of 2003. Jeanette had been fighting a gallant and inspiring battle against colon cancer; however, she passed away on Sunday, Jan. 24.

At Cornish Jeanette performed, among other roles, an unforgettable Puck in Sheila Daniels’ production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” She acted in Seattle both onstage and onscreen after graduation and relocated to Los Angeles, where she performed as an actor as well as a voiceover and motion capture artist. She also taught acting for many years at John Rosenfeld Studios in Los Angeles.

Jeanette was an incandescent light, a source of positivity and joy to all around her. One of her teachers referred to her recently as “a unique and genuine supernova.” She still burns brightly in our hearts.
