According to new details surrounding her death, Jacky Oh was staying at a Homewood Suites by Hilton hotel in the Brickell neighborhood of Miami, where she was found unresponsive on the evening of May 31st, according to a Miami Police Department incident report obtained by The LA Times.

Despite resuscitation efforts, she was pronounced dead shortly before midnight after she was rushed to a local hospital. The case is under investigation.

NFL players Odell Beckham Jr, who seemingly met the late star through his partner Lauren Wood,  “Rest Easy Angel,” OBJ wrote in the post on IG Stories.


NFL star Keenan Allen also shared a post paying homage to the late TV star.

“Damn man! Truly an angel,” Allen wrote. “Jacky introduced me to the wife I have today. Praying for your babies and DC! It’s all perfect timing even though we don’t understand. God is in control!”

In a perplexing twist, an unsettling photograph has surfaced featuring Dr. Zachary Okhah alongside the late Ms. Jacky Oh, dressed in a medical gown, shortly before the tragic news of her sudden death. The image has left many wondering about the circumstances surrounding their encounter and has sparked intense curiosity regarding the events leading up to her passing.

An Instagram account (@surgery411official) revealed Dr. Okhah is NOT a board-certified plastic surgeon, but a board-eligible plastic surgeon. Receipts below:

Past complaints launched against the plastic surgeon have resurfaced. Page Six reports Dr. Okhah had filed lawsuits against past patients whose reviews accused him of leaving them botched. A lawsuit for $30,000 alleged that a former patient said he mutilated her. It also alleged that the woman attempted to persuade prospective clients from utilizing his practice for their elective procedures. The case was later dismissed.

A second lawsuit had been filed against another woman who voiced concerns about the outcomes of procedures performed by Dr. Okhah. Furthermore, she made alarming allegations that positive reviews were fabricated by the doctor’s own staff members and acquaintances. However, mirroring the fate of the previous legal filing, this case was also dismissed.



Sending prayers to Jacky’s family during this unimaginable time.
