Mila De Jesus's husband is grappling with a devastating new reality.

After news that the Brazilian-born influencer had died at age 35 Jan. 12, George Kowszik shared a tribute to his late wife, who he married in September.

"I am not really good with words and talking here," the 61-year-old wrote on Facebook Jan. 13. "I lost my beautiful wife and my best friend yesterday that I love so much."

Days later, George returned to social media to thank his and Mila's loved ones for their support.

"Hello..Everyone of my wife's and I friend's and family," he wrote on Facebook Jan. 16. "Your beautiful kind, caring and loving beautiful words and incredible inspiring PRAYERS... Have instilled such my life of 60yrs on this earth I ever felt."

"My wife loved me and believe in me through God which impacted my life and hers together," he continued. "I was short but often our lord has his own ways of his people. I will never ever forget what God has blessed me and my beautiful and her very wonderful children God has also blessed with me."

Mila is also survived by her four children, including daughter Anna Clara, who had announced on the influencer's Instagram page Jan. 15 that her mom had died. The cause of her death was not revealed.

As Anna Clara wrote, "I miss you so much."

Mila rose to fame through documenting her weight loss journey after undergoing bariatric surgery in 2017 and an abdominoplasty (commonly known as a tummy tuck procedure) the following year.

Just a few months before her passing, she reflected on her body transformation journey.

"13 years between one picture... 6 years since a decision that changed my life in so many ways," Mila wrote on Instagram in November alongside before and after photos. "On one side Mila aged 22 and on the other Mila aged 35, how much we change huh, how we grow and how we learn. Pride girl pride #bariatrica #bypass #antesedepois #weightlosstransformation #beforeandafter."
