    Mac died early in the morning on August 9, 2008 of complications due to pneumonia, his publicist said. Mac, 50, had been hospitalized for about a week at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, according to his spokeswoman. A few years before, Mac disclosed that he suffered from sarcoidosis, a rare autoimmune disease that causes inflammation in tissue, most often in the lungs.[1] His funeral was held on August 16th at the House of Hope church in Chicago. More than 7,000 people attended his funeral. Among mourners were Jeremy Suarez who played his nerdy nephew "Jordan" on The Bernie Mac Show, Chris Rock, Richard M. Daley, Samuel L. Jackson, the other cast members from his series and his fellow Kings of Comedy: D.L. Hughley, Cedric The Entertainer, and Steve Harvey. He is buried at Washington Memory Gardens Cemetery in Homewood, Illinois.[8]

    Just prior to his death, he had finished working on the film Soul Men with Isaac Hayes, who coincidentally died the next day. He was also working on the films Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa and Old Dogs; both films will pay tribute to him. The 2008 Bud Billiken Parade, held in Chicago on the day he died, was dedicated to his memory.
