You've Got to Hear Alex Trebek's Heartbreaking Tribute to Late 'Jeopardy' Champion

December 22, 2016

Alex Trebek pays a deep, heartfelt tribute to Jeopardy champion, Cindy Stowell.

The 41-year-old died from stage 4 colon cancer in early December, before all of her episodes aired.

She knew that she didn't have much time left so she wanted to come on the show and win money. 

She used her prize earnings, roughly $100,000, and donated it to those in need.

Our prayers and condolences are with the Stowell friends and family during their time of great loss.
