While many are still trying to wrap their heads around the fact that after 37 seasons, in 2021 there will be a new host of Jeopardy! as millions of people grew up with the sound of longtime host Alex Trebek’s voice on their television sets.

Unfortunately, after a nearly two-year battle with pancreatic cancer, America’s most popular game show host passed away at the age of 80 on Sunday.

Since then, tributes and well-wishes for his family have been rolling in by the thousands and have included many famous names as well as former Jeopardy! contestants.

On Wednesday, Alex Trebek’s wife Jean broke her silence and posted a photo of the couple from their wedding in 1990 along with a heartfelt thank you message to all of his fans for their support.

“My family and I sincerely thank you all for your compassionate messages and generosity,” Jean captioned the photo. “Your expressions have truly touched our hearts. Thank you so very, very much.

Many Blessings to all, Jean Trebek”

When she and the rest of Alex’s family found out that he had pancreatic cancer she wrote in an article for Guideposts that the news was, “A constant reminder of how precious life is.”

A good reminder for us all.

Alex Trebek’s final Jeopardy! episode will air on Christmas. How appropriate.
