Veteran actress Jaclyn Jose passed away on March 2 at her Quezon City residence. She was 60.

Jose’s daughter, Andi Eigenmann, confirmed the news in a press conference on Monday, stating the cause of death as myocardial infarction, commonly known as a heart attack.

Eigenmann spoke fondly of her mother, highlighting her legacy through her work, family, and the countless lives she touched.

“Her undeniable legacy will definitely forever live on through her work, through her children, through her grandchildren, and the many lives she’s touched. She herself, her life itself was her greatest obra maestra,” Eigenmann said in a press conference on Monday.

Initial reports indicate that Jose, whose real name was Mary Jane Guck, became unresponsive to calls and messages from relatives, prompting a welfare check that discovered her lifeless at home. Her management, PPL Entertainment, expressed their condolences and requested privacy for the grieving families while promising further updates soon.
