TikTok Mom Jehane Thomas Dies Unexpectedly After Being Diagnosed With Optic Neuritis a Few Months Ago

30-year-old TikTok influencer and mother of two, Jehane Thomas, has tragically and unexpectedly died after several years of suffering from intense migraine headaches. She used her social media to detail her life as a mother and promote her newly-founded stationery business – which she started with a friend. 

She had more than 84,500 followers on TikTok and her videos received more than 1.4 million likes – each video she posted received anywhere from 200,000 to 2.1 million views. She also boasted more than 37,500 followers on Instagram. Her family, friends, and fans are heartbroken over her sudden passing. 

She leaves behind two adorable sons – Isaac, who turns 4 years old later this year, and Elijah, who turns 2 years old later this year. She has been absent from social media for nearly a week and passed away on March 17. Her last Instagram post was on March 12 and she posted her last TikTok video one week ago.

On March 5, she took to her Instagram to post a lengthy health update – starting with some words of gratitude towards those who continue to support her business, Print and Pack. She confirmed she had been diagnosed with Optic Neuritis a few months ago after a two-year battle with intense migraines. 

“I’m hoping after Tuesday’s MRI I can finally get the help & treatment I need so I can really focus on business and taking it to the next level with the best bunch of girls by my side,” she wrote – adding that, while the past week had been her worst week health-wise, it was her biggest week business-wise. 

On March 11, she posted another update after being stuck in the hospital for six days. She was surprised by a visit from her two boys, which gave her the ‘energy boost’ she needed. She posted another update the following day, cuddled up with her two boys – all smiles. Unfortunately, her migraines weren’t fixed. 

A few days before she passed, she posted a TikTok of her in a hospital bed as she awaited surgery – which got delayed because she needed fluids. Her migraines were just as bad as before and confirmed she couldn’t lift her head up, was unable to walk, and needed to be wheeled everywhere she went. 

Jehane Thomas’ Friend Creates GoFundMe

A day after Jehane Thomas passed away, her best friend and one of her business partners, Alyx Reast, created a GoFundMe in support of Thomas’ family. She hoped to raise £20,000 and the response has been incredible in such a short time, receiving 866 donations – totaling £15,591 – in just four days. 

“I’ve started this page in the hope of raising money so her beautiful boys can have the best childhood, make memories and make sure they are comfortable. Nothing will bring the boys their mum back, but we hope it will bring some relief to her family, knowing how loved and supported they are,” Reast wrote. 

She added a small message to Jehane – “I promised I’d do what I can for those boys, so that’s what I’m vowing to do. I love you…” Along with her second business partner, Kirsty Louise, she has posted several tributes on their business’ Instagram page – including a link to the GoFundMe account.

I just want to be clear that before my business partner, Jehane was one of my best friends. She was there for me when life was hard and I was there for her, and I miss her so much it physically hurts,” they wrote in an Instagram post – adding that her death was unexpected, despite her continued health struggles.
