The statement did not include a cause of death; however, Jones had been suffering from health issues for several years. In 2017, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Most recently, in November 2022, she was hospitalized for a “lung infection and pneumonia.”
Jones leaves behind her ex-husband, actor Alejandro Camacho. They were married from 1986 – 2011. She also leaves behind her son Maximiliano Camacho Jones. Jones was also step-mom to Camacho’s daughter Francesca Guillén.
Telemundo’s Verónica Bastos has confirmed that her son was one of the people who was with her in her final moments. She was reportedly at home at the time of her death.
Jones was only 65 years old. Rest in peace.
