“Please share this post so that it reaches everyone it needs to. Yesterday, my family received news that our sweet, fabulous, creative, caring, hilarious Eva, my beautiful sister, has died. After 24 hours, I still find myself in a constant cycle of denial and acceptance, so I know how unbelievable and hard to process this news will be,” her sister said.

“I wish I had Eva here now to refer to because she would have better words and know how to say what I don’t. I am keeping this brief, so we can plan for the next few days, but you’ll be hearing a lot more from me on how much Eva means to me and just how different the world will be without her,” she concluded.

Evans Was An Influencer And Content Creator

Evans had amassed over 300,000 followers on TikTok, with content that offered a glimpse of her life as a 20-something living in New York City.

As the Today Show reported, Evans was also a writer and producer who “created and starred in the Amazon Prime series, ‘Club Rat,’ a comedy about an influencer trying to date again in New York City after her breakup video goes viral.”

The news of the death comes just one week after another TikTok star’s shocking death. Kyle Marisa Roth passed away in early April. Her mother announced her passing on social media on April 15. No official cause of death was provided.

Actress Julia Fox also commented on Evans’ sister’s post, “I literally can’t believe it.”

Fox then took to TikTok to share more about her friendship with Evans. The “Uncut Gems” actress stitched a video of Evans’ in which Evans defended Jojo Siwa’s latest rebrand and said, “This video has nothing to do with Jojo and everything to do with Eva.”

Fox continued, holding back tears. “I’m sure a lot of you know, [Evans] was a TikTok star and a New York icon. I always saw her like a little sister and I know she looked up to me. That’s the kind of person she was, sticking up for Jojo. Always sticking up for me. And she passed away. And she was so young. She still had so much to do in life. She lived life to the fullest. And I don’t know what’s happening because we just lost Kyle last week. And I feel like I live so much on this app, I feel like you guys are my family.”
