Our hearts go out to Jill, Ally and everybody in the Zarin family.
Bobby Zarin passed away Saturday after his second battle with cancer at age 71. The business man was first diagnosed with thyroid cancer back in 2009 but came out the other side by removing his thyroid and undertaking radioactive treatment.
In 2016 the cancer returned, spread to his lungs and later his brain. Jill stayed by his side the entire time and through her extravagant party in The Hamptons every summer to rise money for thyroid cancer.
Jill released this statement on her website:
“With the heaviest of hearts, we are devastated to share the news that our beloved Bobby Zarin passed away peacefully today surrounded by family after a courageous battle with cancer,” the family said in a statement. :There are no words to describe how heartbroken we are. Thank you, everyone for all your love, and support during this difficult time.”
The Zarin Fabrics owner really was a great man which we saw throughout Jill's time on RHONY. This news is utterly devastating and I can't even imagine the pain that Jill is going through right now.
Rest in Peace Bobby!
