An animator for Disney named Kevin MacLean shared with FOX what he purchased from the estate sale. He bought a sculpture of Alex’s face for $450, adding that he wanted the sculpture because “He’s just a TV icon.” Alex sadly passed away at the age of 80 after a battle with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. He continued hosting Jeopardy! until the end and his episodes ran until the end of 2020. It was a very sad day for many fans as his last episode aired.

Alex’s widow, Jean, shared that she had no idea he was such a beloved figure in Hollywood until his cancer battle. She said, “We received cartons of mail every day filled with get well cards, etc., at our home address, and I knew that the studio was receiving so much more. It was astonishing.”
