Jacklyn Smith, also known as Ms. Jacky Oh!, allegedly passed away at the age of 32 in Miami, Florida, where she was rumored to be undergoing "mommy makeover" surgery with Dr. Zachary Okhah, but it is unclear if this is related to her death. Her actual death has not been officially confirmed, and the cause of her death hasn’t been revealed as of yet.
Jacky leaves behind three beautiful children (two daughters and a son) that she shares with her lover, partner of several years, and former co-star at Wild'n'Out, John Whitfield, more popularly known as DC Young Fly. After leaving the MTV cast, Jacky reported that she decided to focus on her duties as a mother and on being an entrepreneur. She gave birth to her still-infant son only last year, in 2022, which could have led to speculation that she was doing a mommy makeover while in Miami.
A spokesperson at MTV’s Wild'n'Out issued a statement via social media on Thursday, June 1, 2023, expressing deep condolences and sadness over the passing of Ms. Jacky.
“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Jacklyn Smith, known to the world as Jacky Oh, a talented Wild N’ Out family member whose impact will be forever treasured and missed,” the message read. “Jacky Oh was a loving friend and beloved colleague of the Wild N’ Out cast throughout five seasons. More importantly, she was a tremendous mother to three beautiful children. The BET Media Group extends our sincere condolences to the Smith family, DC Young Fly, B Simone, Nick Cannon, and all friends who loved and cared for Jacky Oh during this difficult time.” - @mtvwildnout
