A few months ago, Trebek told a fan, “With God’s grace and prayers from people like you, and good wishes from folks everywhere, I’m going to come through like you.”
Trebek’s wife, Jean, has been a great caretaker for the JEOPARDY! host since his diagnosis in 2019.
“I feel like I’m a terrible burden to [Jean] and that bothers me tremendously,” Trebek said.
“She says [I’m] not a burden,” said Trebek. “She’s a saint, but she has so much goodness in her that she is always giving out, always putting out to help me get over difficult moments, and there have been some difficult moments. I’m just in awe of the way she handles it.”
Jean and Trebek married in 1990 and have two children, Emily and Matthew, together.
As new episodes of JEOPARDY are in the works, keep checking back for updates on Trebek.
Please continue to pray for Trebek and his loved ones.
