Actor Ron Cephas Jones Dies, Aged 66

At the age of 66, American actor Ron Cephas Jones passed away.

Ron Cephas Jones was a seasoned stage performer best remembered for his part in the television series This Is Us, for which he won two Emmy Awards as a long-lost father who finds redemption.

According to his manager, Jones had a “long-standing pulmonary issue”. Media reports state that in 2020, he underwent a double lung transplant.

Anyone who had the good fortune of knowing him could feel his warmth and heart, according to his manager.

The statement further stated that Jones’s passion for performing on stage “was evident throughout his entire career. Including his recent Tony-nominated and Drama Desk Award-winning performance for his role in Clyde’s on Broadway.”

One of the co-stars paying tribute to the late actor was Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer, who co-starred with Jones in the television series Truth Be Told.

She described herself as “heartbroken” at the news in an Instagram post.

Ron was a superb performer and, more significantly, a beautiful kind person, according to Spencer. On set with Ron, “every day was a good day.”

On Instagram, Sterling K Brown, who portrayed William Hill, the son of Jones’ character in This Is Us, expressed his own respects.

“One of the most wonderful people the world has ever seen is no longer with us,” he wrote. “Life imitated art today.”
