Sad news out of New York City tonight. We’ve just learned that Jill Zarin’s husband, Bobby Zarin, has passed away after a lengthy cancer battle.

The former Real Housewives of New York star announced Bobby’s passing on her website; letting fans know Bobby passed on Saturday surrounded by his family.

“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 Zarin 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.”

Bobby was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2009 but in 2016 his cancer returned. Over the last six months, Bobby has been in and out of the hospital. Despite the odds, Jill and Bobby remained hopeful that a miracle would save Bobby but sadly that was not the case.

Just last week the couple celebrated their 18th wedding anniversary.

On behalf of the AllAboutTRH team, our deepest condolences go out to Jill and the entire Zarin family. My heart is breaking for Jill. I have no words for her loss. Bobby always seemed like a wonderful and kind man. What a sad day for the entire Real Housewives of New York family. Hopefully, Jill’s former costars will rally around her and support her during this sad time.
