Herb Jones Death – Obituary, Bearcats legend dead at age 51

By | December 7, 2021

Rest in peace to #Bearcats legend Herb Jones who passed away today at 51. Only player in school history to score at least 1,000 points in just two seasons. Lost a great person today. My college teammate and our leader from our Final Four team. Herb Jones was the nicest most humbled person I’ve ever met. All he wanted to do was hoop fish n laugh. At a loss for words right now. This hurts.

Herb Jones embodied the spirit and heart of what it meant to be a Bearcat. He was our silent leader that played on both ends of the floor. My heart hurts knowing that he is suffering and there’s nothing I can do. Please pray for a peaceful journey for my brother/TeammateFolded handsSmiling face with tear 34#

Watching Herb Jones play, and do literally everything on both ends of the floor as an undersized forward, is one of the biggest reasons I fell in love with Bearcats basketball. It was a thrill to get to meet him many years later. Rest in peace to a UC Hall of Famer.
