‘America’s Next Top Model’ Star Passes Away

Published: Wednesday 5th Dec 2018 by David

Jael Strauss has passed on.

Full story below…

After rising to fame on ‘America’s Next Top Model‘, the 34-year-old learned that she had cancer two months ago and passed away in Austin,Texas yesterday morning.

Her partner shared this message with her supporters:

Today we lost our earth angel and she is back in the spirit world from which she came and we know she will be watching over all of us,” the page notes. “She will dance at how we celebrate her life by spreading the love that she lived by daily with a reckless abandon. We can honor her best by trying to #lovelikejael.

In lieu of flowers , the family is requesting donations for funeral arrangements and extraordinary final medical expenses. All donations will go solely to these expenses. At the very least , please simply share this post and ask others to do the same so we can get it across the world. Thank you so much for all the love, support, & prayers through the journey

The beloved model shared this message online after learning she was ill back in April:

I was gonna write some long thing but some of you guys deserve to know. On October 2nd I was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. It has aggressively spread throughout my body and is incurable. With treatment it may prolong my life longer than the ‘few months’ doctors said I could make it. I don’t want to die. I need another one of those miracles that I got back in 2013.

As of today, the GoFundMe page created to support her has generated $19,000.

May she rest in peace.

    So sad to read that. I remember rooting for Jael on ANTM (I believe Cari D. won that season?) May her soul rest in love, peace and joy.

      It was Jaslene who won that season.

    Very sad. She had a troubled life and so I hope she is at peace now. I won’t be donating to her GoFundMe, unless I’m sure it is really going towards her funeral expenses and medical bills

    So sad to hear. She had a lovely vibe on the show. I hope the ANTM alumni post pics with their condolences.
