Anyone who is involved in the West Indian community in Canada is familiar with Denise Jones. She is the founder of Jones & Jones Productions, an event and artists management company that is committed to excellence. Though the actual cause of her death was not revealed, we can say that she died yesterday, December 3rd, she was only 64 years-old and according to reports, she has been ill for some time.
On a personal note, I – Maria Jackson – have worked with Denise on a number of occasions. I have sat with her on board meetings in Ontario and have booked her artists on my events in Europe. This news is very shocking and sad because I truly believe that she had so much more to do for the Canadian reggae scene.
My deepest condolences to her family, friends and love ones.
