Jeff Burton, a longtime St. Louis radio personality on 105.7 The Point who bravely fought cancer for nearly a year and a half, died Monday.
Burton bravely fought cancer for nearly a year and a half and died Monday. He was 55. In a message on Facebook, the station said it was “devastated to share that … we lost our beautiful friend and colleague.” “Everyone here at 105.7 The Point loved and appreciated Jeff for innumerable reasons—his kindness, his comedy, his generosity—to just name a few,” the station added. Burton, who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in March 2021, remained to appear weekly on “The Rizzuto Show” until July 1.
“The last time he was on the radio with us was a week ago Friday,” the show’s namesake, Scott Rizzuto, informed listeners on July 11. “The avalanche of people asking, ‘How’s Jeff? How’s Jeff?’ That’s the number one question we all get. The answer is usually, ‘Jeff’s hanging in there.’ … He hasn’t been doing great the past few of days, the past week.”
Rizzuto read a Facebook post from Burton’s wife, Juli, in which she said the disease had spread to her husband’s entire body. “He will not be stable enough to receive any additional therapies. We’re literally out of alternatives,” she wrote. As Rizzuto began reading the article, the show’s two other hosts—Tony Patrico and Moon Valjean—became very emotional. “I’m not a praying guy, but I’ve been praying for Jeff every day and hoping for a miracle,” Rizzuto added.
“I don’t think Jeff is coming in anymore.” For seven months in 2021, as Burton lost his hair from the effects of chemotherapy treatment, he wore a hat advertising a St. Louis business that made a donation to Kids Rock Cancer, a program at Maryville University that helps children cope with the emotional challenges of being diagnosed with cancer. Through his “Man Of Many Hats” campaign, Burton raised more than $35,000 for the organization.
