Legends Tour Mourns Loss of Dawn Coe-Jones

BOSTON, Nov. 12, 2016 – The Legends Tour lost of member of its golf family today at 4 a.m., when LPGA Tour veteran Dawn Coe-Jones passed away, following an eight-month battle with cancer.
Coe-Jones, 56 (pictured left) a native of Campbell River, British Columbia, died peacefully under hospice care with her family in Tampa, Fla. She is survived by her husband, James Edward Jones, son, Jimmy Jones, 21, in-laws Sandy and General James Jones, and brothers Mark and John Coe.
The three-time LPGA Tour winner was diagnosed in mid-March with dedifferentiated chondrosarcoma that required full knee and partial tibia replacement surgery. She was not able to beat the rare and aggressive bone cancer.
“The LPGA Legends are heartbroken about the loss of our great friend, Dawn, who fought a valiant fight over the past few months against a rare form of sarcoma,” said Jane Blalock, CEO of The Legends Tour. “Dawn was truly a player and a person admired, respected and loved by all of us who had the fortune to know and play alongside her. This is indeed, a very sad day.”
