The Terminal List actor Cedric Jones has passed away at the age of just 46.
According to the reports, the actor, who went from being homeless to working alongside Chris Pratt, died suddenly, leaving behind his wife Barbie Jones and their three children.
The cause of death was not immediately revealed.
“Cedric had dedicated his life to helping people in and out of the gym. As found of both Beastie Boxing, and the BMoved Foundation, he inspired and helped people achieve what they previously thought impossible,” the post announcing his passing read.
The tragic news has caused an outpouring of tributes to the former personal trainer turned actor who played the security detail in The Terminal List and appeared in the likes of Emancipation and The Magnificent Seven.
On top of these roles, Jones also starred in Mashall County, Southpaw, and Princess of the Row.
“R.I.P to my good brother and friend. You were always the light in the room and on the set. You will be deeply missed and forever loved. MAY THE WIND ALWAYS BE UNDER YOUR WINGS CHAMP as you ascend into the Heavens. Dream team forever,” Director Antoine Fuqua penned.
“We will all miss your light and positive attitude and huge heart Cedric. Prayers and love to his family,” friend and The Terminal List co-star Kat Samick added.
Digilio Films shared: “It’s with heavy heart that the TLIST family says goodbye to Cedric. Cedric owned a local boxing gym where I used to train. He was a fierce fighter, loving father, but also a dear friend to our Antoine Fuqua.
“When it came time to make The Terminal List, I discovered an audition from Cedric. Had no idea he was pursuing the dream.
“To me he was just the guy humbly kicking my ass at the gym. Antoine, Chris Pratt and I, along with our fellow producing team, found a spot for Cedric on Steve Horn’s security detail, and his work will live on in some of the best episodes of season one.”
Our thoughts remain with Cedric’s loved ones during this challenging time.
