RIP Sharon Jones (1956-2016)

Sharon Jones.
Sharon Jones.

After a period of inspiring dignity and courage while she sought treatment for pancreatic cancer, Sharon Jones has passed away, aged sixty. Jones continued to record and tour while being treated for her illness. Throughout her career, she served as an uplifting figure to so many people. This past year, while being treated for metastatic melanoma, I found her persistence and joy amid adversity to be a particular source of inspiration.
