The fitness world is mourning the loss of Cedric “Beastie” Jones.
“Cedric was a loving father, devoted husband, caring son, brother, community leader, and incredible friend who inspired others,” the gym wrote Oct. 20. “He genuinely wanted everyone to become the best version of themselves. He was a gift.”
The company added, “Cedric had dedicated his life to helping people in and out of the gym. As founder of both Beastie Boxing and the BMoved Foundation, he inspired and helped people achieve what they previously thought impossible.”
His cause of death has not been shared.
Cedric—who appeared alongside friend Chris Pratt in The Terminal List and The Magnificent Seven, according to the Daily Mail—was honored in a memorial run in Manhattan Beach, Calif., on Oct 22. Beastie Boxing organized the event to honor his legacy and send condolences to his family, with one post noting, “He leaves behind a loving wife and three lovely minor children.”
