The world is currently mourning the loss of Ensa Cosby, daughter of American comedian Bill Cosby. Ensa passed away on Friday, February 23, 2018, at the age of 44, in Massachusetts. Her family confirmed her passing in a statement, saying they were “heartbroken.”

Ensa Cosby was born on April 8, 1973, in Cheltenham, Pennsylvania, to Bill Cosby and his wife, Camille. She was one of five children and the second daughter of the famous comedian.

Ensa was a private person and had largely stayed out of the public eye. However, she had publicly defended her father when he was accused of sexual assault in 2014. Ensa released a statement at the time, saying, “I believe that racism has played a big role in all aspects of this scandal. My father has been publicly lynched in the media, and my family has suffered greatly.”

Ensa’s death is particularly tragic for the Cosby family, as they have already been through a lot over the past few years. In 2017, Bill Cosby faced a high-profile trial for sexual assault, which ended in a hung jury. He is currently awaiting retrial. Ensa’s death has come as a huge blow to the family, and they are understandably devastated.

In their statement, the family said, “The Cosby Family thanks many people for their prayers for their beloved and beautiful Ensa, who recently died from renal disease. The family wishes for privacy and peace as they mourn their loss.”

Renal disease is a condition that affects the kidneys, and it is not clear if Ensa had been suffering from it for a long time or if it was a sudden illness. Regardless of the cause, Ensa’s death is a huge loss for her family and for those who knew her.

Ensa was known for her kindness and her passion for helping others. She had a particular interest in issues of social justice and had worked with organizations that helped disadvantaged youth. She will be remembered for her generosity and her commitment to making the world a better place.

The Cosby family has asked for privacy as they grieve the loss of Ensa. Our thoughts are with them during this difficult time. It is never easy to lose a loved one, and we hope they find comfort in the memories they shared with Ensa and in the knowledge that she made a positive impact on the world.
