Legenday Actress, RJ, Dead At 65

Rebecca Jones, a renowned Mexican telenovela star, passed away at the age of 65. Her representative, Danna Vasquez, confirmed the tragic news. Although the cause of death was not revealed in the statement, Jones had been battling health issues for some time.

She was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2017 and was hospitalized for a lung infection and pneumonia in November 2022. According to the statement, Jones was surrounded by her loved ones at the time of her passing and “left in peace and with the utmost gratitude for her audience”.

Rebecca Jones was born in 1957 in Mexico City, but her early life was primarily spent in California. She attended Laguna Beach High School and later pursued higher education at the University of Southern California. In 1981, she decided to return to Mexico to build her career in acting.

Jones enjoyed a prolific career in the Mexican entertainment industry, excelling in both television and stage roles. She is especially remembered for her contributions to projects such as “Cuna de lobos”, “Amorosos fantasmas”, “Dias de combate”, and “The Last Call”.

Even in her later years, she remained active in the industry; her most recent acting credit was for a 2023 film titled “Nada Que Ver” (translated as “Nothing to See”). In fact, just two weeks before her demise, Jones posted photos from the set of the movie, urging her fans to watch it.

Rebecca Jones’ personal life included her marriage to fellow actor Alejandro Camacho, which lasted from 1986 to 2011. She is survived by her son, Maximiliano Camacho Jones, from this marriage. Additionally, she was a stepmother to Camacho’s daughter, Francesca Guillén. Telemundo’s Verónica Bastos confirmed that Jones’ son was among the loved ones present with her during her final moments, which reportedly took place at her home.

Jones’ passing is a loss to the entertainment world, particularly the Mexican television and film industry, where she left an indelible mark through her varied and memorable performances. She is remembered not just for her acting talent, but also for the connection she had with her audience.
