After a wake only for friends and family, marked by the emotion of his ex-wife and tribute to Silvio Santos, the body of Jô Soares was cremated this Saturday morning (6) in Mauá, Sao Paulo. Jô Soares died in the early hours of this Friday (5), at the age of 84, at Hospital Sírio-Libanês, in São Paulo.
Without the cause of death confirmed at the request of the family out of respect for a wish of the presenter, Jô Soares’ body went to Mauá after the ceremony. The death announcement was made by his ex-wife, Flavia Pedra, who needed to be comforted during the wake. In more than 60 years of career, Jô Soares owns a record on Brazilian TV.
The states of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo declared three days of official mourning for the death of the presenter, who was a self-confessed hypochondriac with exotic diseases, and other artists paid tribute to the presenter.

Like Adriane Galisteu, who told about the comedian’s delicate phase, Claudia Raia paid tribute to Jô Soares, with whom she dated in the 80s. “Today, instead of the laughter we always had together, I feel a huge void. But what will last will not be the sadness for your departure: it will be the longing and the precious memories that we cultivate. Your legacy will be eternal, Jô. I miss you already. Love you forever!“, wrote Ray.
