In the 20-second clip, the beloved television icon reminds Americans to hold on to their faith during what is an unprecedented time given the coronavirus pandemic.

Trebek says: “Happy Thanksgiving ladies and gentleman. You know, in spite of what America and the rest of the world is experiencing right now, there are many reasons to be thankful. There are more and more people extending helpful hands to do a kindness to their neighbors, and that’s a good thing.”

“Keep the faith, we’re going to get through all of this, and we will be a better society because of it,” Trebek’s posthumous message concludes.

“Jeopardy!” released the touching video message on its official Twitter account, writing, “High on our list of things to be thankful for this year: Alex’s Thanksgiving message from today’s show. We hope you have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!”

Trebek died on Nov. 8 after a battle with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Hollywood stars and fans alike continue to pay tribute to him.
