Kayla Itsines, a 32-year-old fitness entrepreneur, shared the devastating news on Monday that her husband Jae Woodroffe's mother, Jenny woodroffe adelaide, has passed away.
Kayla posted a heartfelt tribute to her mother-in-law on Instagram, expressing that Jenny was her idol and she wanted to learn so much from her. She described Jenny as an "absolute angel, rock, perfect human being" and said she will forever be their angel.

Jae expresses that he had always feared losing his mother and death in general, to the point of avoiding talking or thinking about it after his father died when he was young.
However, witnessing his mother's peaceful death firsthand brought him comfort and certainty rather than fear. He felt her spirit was gently, lovingly taken away by departed family as evidenced by flickering lights and curtains blowing.
While Jae feels immense sorrow losing his mother and best friend who meant everything to him, he also now believes she is in a beautiful afterlife. This brings him peace and the feeling she is still somehow with him.
The tribute conveys the deep bond Jae had with his late mother and the comfort he finds envisioning her ongoing spiritual presence. Her grace while dying eased fears he'd held since childhood.
Kayla is mourning the sudden loss of her beloved mother-in-law Jenny Woodroffe, whom she cared for deeply. This comes less than two months after Kayla and Jae celebrated their wedding, making it an even more difficult time for their family. The outpouring of sympathy from friends demonstrates how special Jenny was to all who knew her.
Jenny's serene passing, as well as apparent spiritual signs, brought her devoted son acceptance rather than lingering distress over her death. He remains devastated losing Jenny but seems profoundly moved by being able to share her final moments.
