Following His death on the cross, Jesus subsequently rose bodily from the grave (Luke 24). In His resurrected state, He is no longer subject to death, but is alive eternally.

Similarly, although those who place their faith in Him for their own eternal life continue to die temporally, that death does not end their existence. Because of their faith, they, too, have defeated death, and they will live forever in God's presence after their earthly life is over (Philippians 1:23).

Satan planned for Christ's death and burial to end the effect Jesus was having. His death and the grave didn't end anything, but his resurrection was just the start of the early church's explosion in numbers, geography, and reach (no longer was the message only for the Jews.) So through his resurrection, he defeated the effect you would expect his death and the grave to have.
