Teejay tried his hand in showbiz in the mid-90's, starring in ABS-CBN's hit show "Ang TV" and a few movies. However, he stepped away from the limelight to establish a Make A Wish PH non-profit called Spike For Hope.

Teejay's family has remained mum about the loss, and have yet to make a public statement.
