Various outlets report that Jo’s health battles were long-fought, and referenced recent posts made to her Facebook page where she kept her friends and followers updated on recent hospital stays.
“It is a painful realization that you have left this journey to begin a new and very beautiful one. Jo has been unwell and her health had failed her,” creative director Alex Zabotto-Bentley captioned a photo of Jo on Facebook Wednesday evening. “You were one of the first faces I met when I moved to Sydney so many years ago and we worked at Elle mag then tumbled through so many years sharing amazing experiences.”
“We have lost you but we have been present with so many adventures and such incredible times that we will hold dear forever. We shared those together as I know many of our friends have too,” he added. “You were style personified and showed everyone how completely fabulous you were always but your sweet, gentle, vulnerable side was always what attracted me … you have always been a sweetheart.”
Jo is survived by her brother and mother, Patricia, according to the Telegraph.
