The death of Women’s Physique Competitor Jennifer Hernandez aged 58 marks another sad day in the bodybuilding community.
In a story that is still developing, Denis James shared on his Instagram that IFBB Pro Jennifer Hernandez has sadly passed away. The cause or nature of her pre-mature passing is still unknown but with such news family members or friends will more than likely speak up as soon as they digest the situation themselves.
I’m still in shock and can’t believe we lost you Jen. Rest In Peace Jennifer Hernandez🖤🖤🖤You will be missed forever and always.
Jennifer’s last competition was at the Tampa Pro 2021 in August. Jennifer has been a women’s physique competitor since 2005 and was competing as an IFBB pro since getting her pro card in 2009 at the age of 47.
Her main goal was to spread positivity, optimism and promote a healthy lifestyle. Here’s what she had to say about her mission and goal on her own website;
We all have the ability to shine bright like a star. We have the power to live life to our fullest potential. My goal is to teach the world one person at a time about cherishing yourself, your body, your spirit and pursuing your dreams.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle with good nutrition, exercise and a positive mind set are the basic building blocks to being strong, confident, happy and successful.

I am a role model, fitness competitor, personal trainer, teacher, competitor, mom, grandmother and leader.

Let’s make positive changes and live a healthy, happy and successful life.
I am inspired by the desire to inspire you!!!
High-level bodybuilding and premature death of its competitors have a long history. Even though it is still early to speculate on the nature of Jennifer Herandez’s passing, an educated guess would point towards her profession having a role in her early passing.
Just this year there have been several cases of bodybuilders losing their lives way too early, with the most recent example being 37-year-old George Peterson.
What exactly ended Jennifer Hernandez’s life is still unknown and no official statement has been made by either her friends or her family and as of now any speculation of her death is just that, speculation.
