Dear friends and families, it is with a heavy heart that we share with you that we lost Dr. Mary Jones unexpectedly in November.
Dr. Jones’ legacy is one of inspired leadership and compassion in her dedication to the health and wellbeing of some of our community’s most vulnerable children. As both a long-time community pediatrician and since 2009 as Director of the Rett Syndrome Clinic, one of the very few clinics of its kind in the western U.S., she was an enduring champion for her patients and was deeply committed to her work. We are proud and humbled, and fortunate to have had Dr. Jones part of our Oakland community for over 40 years.
Dr. Jones was beloved by her patients, their families, her interns, the UCSF BCHO staff and Branches, the rare disease community, and all of us at The Katie Nues Foundation. She will be deeply missed. Please join us as we extend our condolences and appreciation of Dr. Jones to her patients, family, friends, and colleagues.
Dr. Jones’ family asks, in lieu of flowers, for donations to the Katie Nues Foundation or Xenophon Therapeutic Riding Center (http://xenophontrc.org/)
