Adriane Galisteu, presenter of “Power Couple” and “A Fazenda”, thanked Jô Soares for the laughs. “My God, the world without you… My beloved friend, director, adviser, neighbor, what a sadness… You have always been surrounded by love and will always be so! I will continue to applaud you and through your works learning from you! Thank you for so many laughs, so many conversations for all the teachings”, said Galisteu, who is preparing for another season of the rural reality.

Ana Maria Braga, presenter of “Mais Você”, thanked her for working with Soares. “I had the honor of meeting and living with this journalist and comedian so talented and dear to all of us. Today the day dawned more dull. Rest in peace my friend!”

“I woke up with this sad news. Hard to believe… I admired Jo so much. He was part of our lives… of our families’ lives. His talent has crossed generations. He was an incredible professional: comedian, writer, director, presenter. Thanks for the laughs, Jo. Thank you for the conversations, for the always very generous messages… Rest in peace”, said Patrícia Poeta.

“How I liked Jô! Always smart, fun, unexpected and creative. I was sad when the show ended, but I was sure I would continue to see Jô in other ways on TV. That didn’t happen, only the references and more and more certainty of the great artist we had and will always have”, wrote Lilia Cabral.

“My joy since childhood, my joy for so many years, with unforgettable characters, his absolute talent, his moving story. I woke up early, went to SP, opened the news and saw your photo. I cried, I was very sad. I think he always knew how much I liked him, wanted him to know more. Thank you, dear for being such a partner and dear in all the interviews, thank you for the respect and for teaching me so much. A special kiss to the family, my condolences,” he added.

Singer Thiaguinho also spoke about the death. “Dawn with the worst possible news is very sad, I was restless, sleepless and right now I can’t go back to sleep. This man changed the lives of many people. A master, a godfather and a good soul. Rest in peace my friend. I’m devastated”.
