Veteran TV and radio personality Jeremy Mansfield has died, his close friend Samantha Cowen confirmed in a statement on Monday.

“This morning a light went out in the world. Jeremy Mansfield passed away just before dawn. He died peacefully at home surrounded by family and friends and boundless love.

South Africans have flooded social media to pay their condolences to all who loved veteran TV and radio personality Jeremy Mansfield.

Mansfield died on Monday morning. His death was confirmed by close friend Samantha Cowen.

He revealed in January that his cancer has returned. Early last month, he shared the heartbreaking news that his cancer had progressed to stage 4 and that it was terminal, and only subject to palliative care.

“[I] have had it confirmed by the specialist surgeon leading everyone in the team looking after me that my cancer is confirmed stage 4, terminal and is now only subject to palliative care.

“This dream team (as I now refer to them) will now guide me through how to have as much fun in the time I have left and fulfil as many dreams, big and small, [as] I have in my bucket list. A new journey for Kari and the rest of our families starts today,” he shared with his more than 84 000 Facebook followers in August.

The duo dominated the air waves for 13 years.

In 2009, Mansfield announced that he had been diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. A year later he left the station.

In 2018, Mansfield returned to the air waves as the host of Hot 91.9 FM’s new morning show, Mansfield in the Morning, with his long-time colleague Sam Cowen as his co-host.

Mansfield was born in Grahamstown, where he attended school at the prestigious Kingswood College. He studied Speech and Drama and Journalism at Rhodes University.
