One of Queer Eye‘s “heroes” has died, and the show is sad about it.
Tom Jackson died at 11:49 p.m. on Friday after “losing his battle with metastatic adenocarcinoma.” This was written in his obituary. He was 63.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America says that metastatic adenocarcinoma happens when adenocarcinoma cancer cells start in one part of the body and spread to other parts. It is also called adenocarcinoma in stage 4.
Jackson worked for Federal Express and then drove a dump truck in Georgia before he became a reality star. His obituary said that being a grandfather to his two grandsons, who were his pride and joy, was one of his best things.
“Tom’s life was made better when he was cast on the Netflix show “Queer Eye.” He liked being famous and told everyone who would listen about it.” it kept going.
Along with his two grandsons, Tom is survived by one daughter, who also appeared on the Netflix show, two sisters, and other family members.
His family thanked the doctors and nurses at Kennestone Hospital for giving Jackson “treatment and comfort” in his last days.
“We will never forget our beloved Tom. He gave our family joy, laughter, persistence, and love. We like him a lot, and we hope to see him again someday, “the family said in the death notice. On March 12, a memorial service for him will be in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Instead of sending flowers, his family has asked people to watch his episode of Queer Eye on Netflix.
In February 2018, Jackson was in the first episode of the new series. As the Fab Five (Jonathan Van Ness, Karamo Brown, Antoni Porowski, Tan France, and Bobby Berk) tried to help him find his confidence while he was looking for love and he said, “You can’t fix ugly,” he became a fan favorite.
Some of the cast and the official account for the reality show mourned Jackson’s death on Instagram by posting photos of his memorable cameo.
“We say goodbye to a member of our Queer Eye family with a heavy heart. Tom Jackson, rest in peace, “the picture said.
“This is such terrible news,” France wrote in the comments.
Van Ness said, “Rest in peace, Tom.”
Jackson told Porowski while they were making the episode that he was still in love with his ex-wife, Abby. Two months after the show’s first episode aired, Jackson told everyone that he and Abby had gotten married again. He said on Twitter that they got divorced again in September 2019.
The roller coaster ride is over. Abby and I got divorced again. It was final Wednesday September 4th.
