The family is actor and boxer Cedric “Beastie” Jones revealed he has passed away on October 16. He was just 46 years old.
“Cedric was a loving father, devoted husband, caring son, brother, community leader, and incredible friend who inspired others,” the statement on his gym’s Instagram account read.
“He genuinely wanted everyone to become the best version of themselves. He was a gift,” the statement continued. “Cedric had dedicated his life to helping people in and out of the gym.”
“As founder of both Beastie Boxing and the BMoved Foundation, he inspired and helped people achieve what they previously thought impossible.” Jones is survived by his three children and his wife.
Currently, Jones’s cause of death is still unknown.
Along with his successful career as a businessman, Jones was also a successful actor, starring alongside the likes of Chris Pratt and Will Smith in movies like The Terminal List and Emancipation.
But perhaps his favorite job was being a father. As E! News reports, back in 2019, Jones’ bragged about his 10-year-old son Braxton.
“He is so much cooler than I was. He keeps me on my toes. I love this dude so much that it feels my heart to be able to hear him call me daddy.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Jones family during this extremely difficult time. This is a developing story.
