Jazz artist Jacqui Magno died earlier this afternoon, June 21, reportedly from pancreatic cancer.
The 65-year-old music icon passed on at exactly 4:05 PM at the University of the East Ramon Magsaysay (UERM) Memorial Hospital in Quezon, City.

Showbiz personalities, especially those from the music scene, are now mourning anew and sharing their grief on social media.
