The sad news was announced by her husband Wincy Ong in a Facebook post on Wednesday. He said that CJ suffered aneurysm and two strokes.

"Sadly, yesterday at 10:45AM, while in the ICU, our beloved Cj suffered two strokes, and finally became one with the Universe," Wincy shared.

“She fought to the very end,” Wincy wrote giving a tribute to his wife.

“She was a loving wife to me, a loving cat-mom to our cats Andres and Max, and a loving daughter to her parents and uncle,” he added.

According to Wincy, CJ loved the advertising industry and described her as a "passionate" executive creative director.

“She used her talents in illustration and painting in championing causes close to heart,” he said.

CJ was known as the Promil Gifted Child back in the '90s when she was 11 years old.

"Most of you would remember her as a Promil Gifted Child in those commercials in the Nineties, but from the many people who visited the hospital or sent in a message or two, I learned that Cj was a gift herself to the people who came to know her," he said.

CJ’s wake will be held at The Heritage Park in Taguig from June 20 to June 22, followed by a cremation service on June 23.
