After the news of Trebek’s passing broke, the internet buzzed with broken-hearted friends and fans who posted tributes to the late, great TV show host.

He was a class act, a rare breed, and people honed his outstanding character and composure over and over again. The person nearest to him stayed silent until now but he enjoyed the outpouring of support that he made evident in his own post on Wednesday.

“My family and I truly thank all of you for your kind words and generosity,” Jean Trebek shared with Instagram.

“Your expressions have touched our hearts. Thank you so much.”

“Many blessings to all of you, Jean Trebek.”

She added a quick yet cute shot of their wedding day where Alex seems to be putting the ring on her finger.

It’s no secret that Jean means the world to Alex and that without her, he wouldn’t have done it as much as he did in his cancer battle.

“She held me safe,” he said to Strangers. “If it weren’t for Jean, I would have taken myself out of it a long time ago.”

When the pair met in 1988, Jean was less than half the age of Alex: she was 23, he was 47. But age was just a number, and Trebek knew right away that she was something special.

“It just happened with Jean,” Trebek wrote in his latest memoir. “Often you look at someone, you look at someone and you know that.”

“I mean, you’ve heard tales about people getting together and agreeing within half an hour; I knew this was going to be the guy I’d end up with. That’s how it was for Jeanie.”

“I haven’t been looking for love. But at the intestine level, I realized that there was someone here who was going to complete me as a human being.”

They got married two years after the encounter. They spent “just” 30 years together with the Jeopardy! The host touched and briefly lamented in an interview with People.

“But my wife, Jean, and I have been together for almost 29 years, and I was thinking about President Bush when he died, and all the comments about his life and what a good man he was and how he and his wife had been together for 73 years,” he told People in January.

“I think, oh my gosh… if I had only met Jean in my 20s, we might have had a long life together.”

“I think if I had met her when I was 20, she wouldn’t have been born yet. But hey, 29 years is very fine! ”

And it was much better for 30 years.
