This weekend, Jerry Springer was laid to rest in a private ceremony attended by a small group of family and friends. The legendary talk show host had passed away last week after a battle with pancreatic cancer. According to sources with direct knowledge, the burial followed traditional Jewish customs and took place in a suburb of Chicago.
Public Celebration of Life
Jerry Springer’s fans will have the opportunity to say goodbye to the late, great talk show host. A tribute is being planned, which is scheduled to take place on May 16 in Cincinnati. The event will be free and open to the public with organizers anticipating letting around 500 people inside the venue. The ceremony will be an overview of his life and legacy in and out of work which touched communities from all walks of life, from politics to entertainment and everything in between. Some famous faces are expected to attend, but the list of guests is still being worked on. The event will include videos, guest speakers and music to honor the legacy of the talk show host. The ceremony will be streamed live so those who cannot attend can also pay their respects.
While the focus of the public service will be on allowing everyday people to pay their respects, the organizers are planning for a celebratory event that will honor Jerry Springer’s life. More details about the ceremony will be available soon, and tickets will be made available to the public. Jerry Springer was 79 years old at the time of his passing. Rest in peace.
