Many of us grew up listening to “The Monkees” and watching their comedy sketch shows. Many of us remember the introduction to their television show (“Hey, hey, we’re the Monkees, and people say we monkey around . . .”)
The Monkees were so popular with teenagers, especially female teens, that the term “Monkeemania” was coined to describe the mania displayed by teenage fans. Davy Jones was probably the most famous of all the Monkees. Jones went on to pursue a successful solo musical career and acting career.
Davy Jones died on February 29, 2012 at age 66 of a heart attack. He left behind several children and his third wife. Jones married his third wife only a few years before his death. However, sources say that he may not have included her in his most recent will. According to news sources, Davy Jones last revised his will in 2004, several years before he married his third wife, Telemundo actress Jessica Pachecho. When they wed, Jones was 63, while she was only 32.
Unfortunately, we may never find out the details of the famous Monkee’s probate records because of the unusual decision by a Florida probate judge to grant a motion to seal the singer’s records filed by his eldest daughter.
