It read: “With great sorrow, I announce the passing of my wife, Jossara Jinaro on this date, April 27, 2022.

“Jossara bravely fought cancer and came home to be surrounded by family.”

It continued: “Jossara was an amazing wife, mother, artist, and friend. She had the most beautiful, kind soul and wouldn’t take no for an answer. Even in her last moments, she was still fighting.

“She is now resting in peace and will be remembered forever. Myself, Liam, and Emrys will miss her so deeply, although we know she is in our hearts and guiding us every step of the way.”

At the end of the tribute, her husband confirmed that a ‘public memorial service will be held in the Bay Area’.

According to Deadline, Jinaro was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and was then raised in Columbia. Her diplomat stepfather was allegedly held hostage at one point, which led her family to move to America.

When she was 16 years old, the star moved out to Chicago and got herself an agent. It’s believed that she was encouraged to look for work over in Los Angeles, in order to have more luck with her acting.

Throughout her career, Jinaro starred in ER, Judging Amy, the Viva Vegas series and Passions – which led to her receiving a GLAAD nomination in 2006.

The actress is survived by her husband and two children, Liam and Emrys.
