Jeanetta Jones

Very sad news - former OCM Jeanetta Jones - who left TWC in late 2006 after suffering a brain injury in a car accident - has passed away from COVID-19, according to social media posts: https://twitter.com/jameysingleton/status/1427457322557845504

She was one of my favorite OCMs back when I first started watching TWC. Rest in peace, Jeanetta. :(

It's sad that we now lost two former OCM legends on the same year. First Paul Emmick, and now Jeanetta Jones.  :(  Jeanetta was a really great personality of nearly 20 years on TWC (she even first joined the network on the same year that Jim Cantore and former personality Vivian Brown joined back in 1986 when the network first introduced their "For Everything You Do" campaign as well as the news anchor-style format). Long before the COVID-19 pandemic, it was a miracle that she survived that horrible car crash nearly 15 years ago, but left her paralyzed and led up to the end of her long-time talented career at TWC.


My heart, prayers, and condolences all go out to her, and her family, as well as friends of Jeanetta and everybody at TWC, past and present staff members at the network.
Never storm chase and play Pokémon GO at the same time!

Just found out about this. Very sad news! :cry: Jeanetta was one of my favorite OCMs from the pre-2006 time period. May she rest in peace. Condolences go out to her family, friends, and the entire TWC staff and community, past and present.
