“It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my wife, Jossara Jinaro, on this date, April 27, 2022.” Jossara fought cancer heroically and returned home to be surrounded by family. Jossara was a wonderful wife, mother, artist, and friend. She has a beautiful, compassionate soul and would not accept no for an answer. Even in her final moments, she was battling. She is finally at peace and will be remembered for the rest of her life. Myself, Liam, and Emrys will miss her terribly, but we know she is with us in spirit, helping us every step of the journey.”

Jinaro has a successful Hollywood career, acting in a variety of drama shows like as “ER” (NBC, 1994-2009), “Judging Amy” (CBS, 1999-2005), and “Strong Medicine” (Lifetime, 1999-2005).
She was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and raised in Colombia as the adoptive daughter of a diplomat. When her stepfather was kidnapped by guerillas, the family fled to the United States.
She moved to Chicago at the age of 16 and promptly signed with her first agent, who got her involved in theatre work. Her commanding presence prompted another agency to recommend relocating to Los Angeles, where she quickly found employment with Columbia Tri-Star as Virginia Bustos in the Alma-nominated sitcom “Viva Vegas.”
She made her television debut as Cheech Marin’s daughter on “Judging Amy,” then moved on to “ER.”
Her performance in “Passions” was nominated for a GLAAD award in 2006. In 2009, she returned to Colombia to work on the novel “La Bella Ceci y El Imprudente,” before returning to Hollywood for the series “East Los High.”
Jinaro began making her own short films, which grew into a feature picture that was accepted into Panavision’s new filmmaker’s programme. She’s done the film festival circuit with Desert Road Kill, for which she won Best Supporting Actress.
Her film credits include Rob Zombie’s Devil’s Rejects, Havoc with Anne Hathaway, TenTricks with Leah Thompson, Fly Boys with Stephen Baldwin, Oliver Stone’s World Trade Center with Maggie Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena, and Lionsgate’s hip-hop comedy Go For It!
Her husband and two children are among the survivors.
