Jones joined the Monkees in 1965 with Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, and Peter Tork. The group was originally inspired for television after filmmakers Bob Rafelson and Bert Schneider watched The Beatles‘ film A Hard Day’s Night. The sitcom ran for two seasons from 1966-1968, amassing fifty-eight episodes.

Davy Jones is survived by his wife, Jessica Pacheco, and four daughters from previous marriages.

    So incredibly sad…I’m so glad my sister and I got to see him perform at the St. George Theater on Staten Island recently…..he was as fabulous as ever and she even was able to take a picture with him and have him sign her poster. He will be missed.

    I remember in 2002 when we were in Disney World and saw Davey Jones in concert. He walked through the audience singing and I was in awe just watching him singing. You can tell he truly loved being in the audience. I will never forget that day nor watching him on the Monkeys and on the Brady Bunch. So sad. Rest in Peace Davey.

    I was shocked to hear that Davy Jones Died of a Heart Attacked . He did not strike me as the type of person that would suffer from Heart problems. At lease the end was quick for him. I send my respects to his family and to the rest of the moonkees group. I will always remmeber their show and the Monkee Men outfit.

    Davy will be missed by this Fan.

    I have been a Monkees fan for 45 +years , and I had the great opportunity to meet the the Monkees last June at Mohegan Sun. Although they were only brief encounters of a hello and a handshake, I was able to speak to Davy for a moment . I told him that we had actually met over 30 years ago. I was a nursing student in Toledo, Ohio, and he was appearing at a local establishment with a group named Toast. I think by his reaction and his Oh yeah! that he was a little surprised that anyone had ever heard of them. I will always remember that and him. Cindy Sciano
