TikTok star Jehane Thomas died suddenly at the age of 30, only days after she shared an emotional post on social media about her persistent migraines.
Thomas’ friend Alyx Reast shared the news via a GoFundMe page that was created Friday to raise money for funeral costs and for her two sons.
In the description of the GoFundMe page, Reast noted that her friend’s passing was unexpected, despite some of the health challenges she was facing.
“Jehane Thomas was a 30 year old, mum of two boys when she suddenly passed away on 17/03/2023,” the description reads.
“Despite suffering from migraines and bouts of illness for several months, her passing was totally unexpected and we are all absolutely heartbroken.”
Thomas, who has nearly 75,000 followers on TikTok, documented many of her frequent trips to the hospital.
Tributes have poured in on social media following the sad news of her sudden death.
Jehane’s friend and another parenting TikTok star, Kelly Medina Enos said: “I really have no words for the news we have found out today. Thank you to your family and friends for allowing me to post my respects.

Theresa Parker said: “I can’t tell you that I’m in shock to learn that my friend Jehane Thomas has suddenly passed away. I first met her at a previous job and we was in the same team. Then she was the person that introduced me to my now home based travel business.”
