Late Model Jeremy Ruehlemann’s Girlfriend Mary-Brian Clarke "Unexpectedly" Dead at 24
The fashion world has lost another rising star.
Two months after model Jeremy Ruehlemann died, his longtime girlfriend, a rising public relations talent, Mary-Brian Clarke has also passed away.
"Our beloved daughter, sister, and friend, Mary-Brian Clarke, unexpectedly passed away on Tuesday, the 21st of March 2023, at the age of 24," her family wrote in an obituary. "She is survived by those who loved her most, including her parents Resa and Brian Clarke, and siblings Abby, Hanna and Jack."
"Mary-Brian attended LIM College where she was becoming a talented influence in the fashion industry having worked for TIBI, Elizabeth Bensinger, and MadHappy," their message continued. "The angels in heaven will certainly benefit from her sense of style and fashion. Arriving at the gates of heaven in one of many pairs of unique sunglasses, more rings than her fingers could hold and either a furry jacket or hat and a one-of-a-kind pair of trendy sneakers, and that magnificent smile that was a magnet for all."

Remembering her "contagious laugh, her witty sense of humor and her unique ability to connect with others," they added, "She was a light to everyone who knew her which came from her belief in the good of others."
A cause of death has not yet been revealed.
Back in January, after her boyfriend Jeremy died at 28, she took to Instagram with an emotional tribute, which included a video of the two singing along to the radio and photos of them laughing and kissing. As she captioned the series, "I love you forever & miss you everyday."
Christian Siriano also mourned the loss of his close friend.
"I have never posted anything like this but to lose a friend who was such a beautiful soul is just really hard," he wrote at the time. "This is for Jeremy, the most beautiful man that gave so much love to everyone he met no matter what. He was one of my muses and he always will be. He inspired me and I will love him forever."
"I know we will meet again one day but right now I just want to hug him," the designer concluded. "Rest well J we all love you so much! Send love to his family today please."
