RELATIVES OF JENNIFER

Jennifer Belle was raised in a beautiful family despite her parents' divorce many years ago. Her paternal grandparents, Roslayn and Benjamin Saget, are among her relatives.

Jennifer Belle had an aunt – Bob's sister, Gay Saget. Sadly, in 1994, Gay passed away at the age of 47 from systemic scleroderma, an autoimmune disease that affects both the skin and the internal organs.

Bob's youngest daughter was just two years old when her aunt died. In memory of Gay, Bob started philanthropic activities and got involved in charitable initiatives centered on systemic scleroderma treatments.

Besides his philanthropic activities, Bob directed "For Hope" in 1996, an ABC television movie based on events that personally touched his family. In a 2016 Today essay, Bob stated:

"It was a very emotional and fulfilling project, a moment in my life that I will always treasure. I believe that TV movie helped put scleroderma on the map for many."

Bob managed to raise funds through comedy. He set up a show to generate money to support the charity he founded. His cause was greatly supported by his comical friends, including the late actor Robin Williams.

After Gay's death, Jennifer's grandfather, Benjamin, died on February 4, 2007, due to complications from congestive heart failure. He had formerly worked as a senior executive at a supermarket chain for over two decades.

INSIDE THE MARRIAGES OF JENNIFER'S FATHER

Along with his acting skills, many people admired Bob for his passionate philanthropy. He was well-known for his breakout role in the classic series "Full House" as Danny Tanner, who raised his daughters, played by twin sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

Bob's on-screen character mirrored his real-life role as a father of three children. At the time, his young daughters were envious of his on-screen kids. In contrast, Bob reassured his three daughters that they are his top priorities in life, saying:

"They are the light of my life. I am a fortunate man in that all three of my daughters are exceptional. Very high beings, very smart people, very wonderful and very brilliant, very beautiful. They're all artists."

Bob's affection for his children was the same as his feelings for Sherri, his former high school sweetheart. Bob and Sherri stayed close after their divorce.

Years after his divorce from his first wife, Bob successfully found a second chance at love. In October 2018, the stand-up comedian married his second wife, Kelly Rizzo. They never considered expanding their family, though.

Kelly, who works as a food and travel blogger, stated that Bob already has three kids with whom she had grown close. At the time, Bob described his wife's connection with his daughters as "magical."

Although he never saw himself becoming a father again in the coming years, Bob said he anticipated becoming a grandfather in the future since one of his daughters was already in a relationship.

The couple shared their amazing travels, romantic evenings, and low-key life at home with their social media fans throughout their marriage. Amid the pandemic in 2020, Kelly expressed appreciation for having Bob as a supportive husband.

Kelly was head over heels in love with Bob. In a previous interview, she said she had never met someone like the "Madagascar" actor. She noted that her husband was a wonderful man.

Kelly added that she never had a dull moment with the "New York Minute" actor. The proud wife also remarked that all of Bob's close friends were as amusing and unique as he was.

DEATH OF JENNIFER'S FATHER

Fans were shocked when Bob died unexpectedly in his hotel room at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando in January 2022. After failing to check out, a hotel security guard allegedly discovered the famous comedian lifeless on the bed.

Investigators allegedly discovered no indication of a struggle or foul play nor proof that anybody else entered Bob's suite while he was still there. He also had no poison or illegal substances in his system.

The hotel employees who met Bob throughout his stay never saw anything odd about him. Other employees characterized the famed comedian as outgoing and friendly.

Bob was on tour for his "I Don't Do Negative Comedy Tour" at the time of his death. He reportedly stated that he appreciated the kind reception he received from his audience in Orlando and at the Ponte Vedra Beach resort near Jacksonville.

According to the medical examination findings, Bob's cause of death was due to an "accidental blow to the head," most likely from a backward fall.

Bob's body was laid beside his parents and sister at Mount Sinai Memorial Parks and Mortuaries. Mourners paid tribute to Bob by donating to the Scleroderma Research Foundation, a philanthropic organization he founded and governed as a board member.
