â€˜Jeopardy!â€™ Host Alex Trebek Passes OnLong-running hit series â€œJeopardy!â€ host, Alex Trebek, has succumbed to cancer at age 80, according to TMZ. "Jeopardy! is saddened to share that Alex Trebek passed away peacefully at home early this morning, surrounded by family and friends,â€ read a tweet from the showâ€™s official account on Sunday. Last year, Trebek announced that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. â€œJust like 50,000 other people in the United States each year, this week I was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancerâ€, he said in a video posted on Instagram. In the video, he reassured fans that he was â€œgonna fight thisâ€ and â€œbeat the low survival-rate statistics for this disease.â€ Having featured in more than 8200 â€œJeopardy!â€ episodes, Trebek's contract had been renewed in 2019 for three years. His last episode, however, is scheduled to air December 25th. Trebek is survived by wife, Jean, and his three children â€“ Matthew, Emily and Nicky.
