Alex Trebek’s widow Jean knew his life would ‘wrap up quickly’ when he could no longer tape ‘Jeopardy’: ‘But he wanted to finish strong’

Jean Trebek says Jeopardy helped husband Alex Trebek through his cancer battle. The iconic game show host's widow was interviewed on the Today show about his legacy — and her grief. She spoke candidly about missing her partner of 30 years, "the ying and the yang to each other," and being in "disbelief that he's gone." She also talked about how Jeopardy gave Alex a reason to get out of bed each morning while fighting Stage 4 pancreatic cancer.
