Alex Trebek may be gone, but many people have kept his memory alive, especially his wife, Jean Trebek. From the “Danger!” host lost her heroic battle with pancreatic cancer, Jean has been at the forefront of an effort to help raise money for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. In May, Alex’s widow spoke with People about her efforts to raise funds for the organization near and dear to her heart, considering she lost her husband to the same disease. “It’s a bit bittersweet because this was the disease that took Alex’s human life,” she told the outlet. “But I also know what attracted him. The courage of him, the strength of him, and that’s what Alex, I know, wants to be remembered for.”
Jean participated in the PanCAN Purple Stride Walk and Run at the Los Angeles Zoo, which helped raise money for the organization. Like Jean, Alex’s children also attended the event and vowed to keep their promise to the late star and raise awareness for pancreatic cancer. On November 21, 2021, Jean also shared a post of her on her instagram feed to reveal that he was working with The Compassion Project on Alex’s behalf. The post also came on the first anniversary of Alex’s death. “One of the final messages from him was the importance of having compassion for one another,” she wrote in the caption. Additionally, Jean’s post also included a video to help raise awareness. How sweet is that?
