Jensen is the mom of the recently deceased actor, Raphael Coleman, who died while on a trip to South Africa. Explaining how her son died, the grieving mother added,

"It seems he died of heart failure. He was laughing and running when he collapsed. It was blessedly quick."

The actor's mom has received a lot of heartfelt messages from her son's fans on Twitter. One person tweeted that she can't imagine the pain Jensen is going through.

Another described the death of Coleman as a loss "For us all," adding it must be unbearable for the deceased's mother. A third fan wrote that as a fellow mom, she is sorry for Jensen's pain.

As an adult, he quit acting to become a scientist, and worked mostly with NGOs to combat and create awareness on the effects of climate change.

Another fan tweeted that the actor's death is a dreadful tragedy and sent his thoughts to those he left behind. For the fifth fan, Jensen's pride in her son is admirable.

One other Tweep sent his most profound thoughts and prayers to the deceased's family, while one described the grieving woman as a wonderful mother. Another user tweeted,

"I am so sorry for your loss. He was the most fearless, compassionate activist I knew. His integrity was an inspiration."

Coleman passed away on Friday, February 7th, at the age of 25. Jensen shared the news on Twitter, writing that her son died doing what he loved, and asked everyone to celebrate his life and cherish his legacy.

The young actor had no prior history of a heart defect. He lived and practiced a healthy lifestyle, and after he collapsed, all efforts to revive him proved abortive.

Coleman rose to fame starring in the movie, "Nanny McPhee." As an adult, he quit acting to become a scientist, and worked mostly with NGOs to combat and create awareness on the effects of climate change.

Extinction Rebellion, one of the groups he worked with, described the deceased on Facebook as a burning bright soul who fought for the cause. Coleman's life might have ended too early, but it was impactful and fulfilling.
