There are 4 comments on BU Community Mourns the Death of SPH’s David Jones

  1. Prof Jones is the biggest reason why I currently work in health policy. His classes, his guidance, and his mentorship encouraged me to take my passion for change and pour it into healthcare policy.

    A sad loss for the community today.

  2. At the Gillings School of Global Public Health, where David graduated with his MSPH from Health Policy and Management, and his mother with her DrPH, we share your pain and sadness. David is remembered at Gillings with great fondness and respect. Our hearts and prayers go out to you all and to his family.

  3. David Jones was an inspiring and encouraging professor at the School of Public Health. I feel very fortunate to have known and learned from David.

    This tragic news weighs many of us with heavy hearts. May we send peace to David’s family during this very difficult time.
