Jono Coleman dies aged 65

Australian TV and radio personality, Jonathan Coleman, has died after a four-year battle with prostate cancer.

A statement released by his family today confirmed the passing of Mr Coleman, who they say died peacefully last night.

“Jono and I have been soulmates for close to 40 years. We have been fortunate to live a rich and wonderful life and I have been lucky enough to watch up-close someone with enormous talent and the special gift to make people laugh,” his wife Margot said.

“I will miss him beyond words and with the support of our gorgeous children, Oscar and Emily, and their partners, we will continue to live in the manner he wanted.

“When I asked Jono recently how he wanted to be remembered, he said, ‘For doing a good deed every day.’ Such was the generosity and caring nature of the love of my life.”

Jono and Margot Coleman attend the memorial service for Harry M. Miller in 2018.

Coleman had a lifelong career in radio and television in both Australia and his home country of the UK.

He is survived by his wife of 31 years and their children, Oscar and Emily.

His son paid tribute to him on social media today in a Twitter post, saying simply: “Love you dad. Rest in Peace.
