Chet Curtis has died after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. On Jan. 23, Boston.com reported the sad news, causing thousands of Bostonians to leave heartfelt messages and condolences on their site. Chet Curtis was a very popular news anchor in Boston for many years. He and his ex-wife, Natalie Jacobson, were very much a "dream team" when it came to nighttime reporting. For many, "Chet and Nat" were part of a nightly dinner routine.

"The on-air chemistry and domestic union – they were among the first married co-anchors paired together in a major television news market – made Mr. Curtis and Ms. Jacobson media royalty in Boston," according to Boston.com.

Chet Curtis died at age 74. Although he was no longer on the air, he was extremely well liked around the city -- and well-respected. After many years in the media world, Chet was inducted into the Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 2013 -- an amazing accomplishment and something that he got to be proud of before his time on earth came to a close.

Mr. Curtis’s wake was slated for 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday at Waterman & Sons Funeral Home, 580 Commercial St., Boston. The funeral was to be held at 11 a.m. Monday at St. Cecilia Parish, 18 Belvidere St., Boston.
