Rebecca Jones, a telenovela star from Mexico City born in 1957, thrived during her youth in California after enrolling at Laguna Beach High School and later the University of Southern California.
In 1981, Jones returned to Mexico to captivate audiences with her talent for stage and screen. She is celebrated for her work on iconic projects such as “Cuna de lobos,” “Amorosos fantasmas,” “Dias de combate,” and the recently acclaimed film “The Last Call.” Her latest venture into acting will be Caroline in the upcoming 2023 release of “Nada Que Ver” – literally meaning Nothing to See.
Two weeks ago, Jones took to social media and shared several behind-the-scenes images from the set of her latest movie, encouraging fans everywhere to check it out.
After two weeks of anticipation and worry, her representative Danna Vasquez sadly confirmed the news—the beloved actress had passed away. In a recent declaration, Vasquez shared that Jones “was accompanied at all times by her loved ones. She left in peace and with the utmost gratitude for her audience.”

The cause of death was not mentioned in the statement; nevertheless, Jones had experienced health issues for a lengthy period. In 2017 she was given an ovarian cancer diagnosis and more recently, last November 2022, she was confined to the hospital due to complications arising from a lung infection and pneumonia.
Jones is survived by her ex-husband, actor Alejandro Camacho to whom she was married from 1986 until 2011. She also leaves behind her son Maximiliano Camacho Jones and the daughter of Mr.Camacho, Francesca Guillén, who she lovingly took on as a stepdaughter during their marriage.
Verónica Bastos of Telemundo confirmed that her son was amongst those with her during the last moments of life. Reportedly, she passed away at home.
Jones, only 65 years old and taken too soon, may you rest in peace.
