Jane Jones Husband – Dean Jones Married
Jane was married to cricketer Dean Jones until his death in September 2020. They had been married for 34 years.
While they were still married Dean had a long-term affair with flight attendant Kerri-Anne Hamilton. The affair began in the late ’90s after the pair met at a golf day, where Ms Hamilton was working as a model.
He was forced to admit the affair, which ended in 2009, after he learned Ms Hamilton had given an interview to Channel Nine’s A Current Affair.
In a statement to The Sunday Telegraph Jones said, “I can confirm that I am the retired cricketer referred to in the A Current Affair preview last night (Friday). Following an on-and-off relationship with a women (sic), a child was conceived and subsequently delivered. I can also confirm I have supported the mother and child more generously than was agreed. At no stage have I not met my obligations. My immediate aim is to seek the forgiveness and understanding of family. I am therefore asking that you respect our privacy.”
The affair bore a son known as Koby and Jones agreed to pay child support after the paternity test proved he was the father.
Hamilton claimed that she was initially unaware Jones was married. “We were having lunch and he said, ‘I don’t know if you know this, but I’m married’. Sometimes it would go nearly a year that I would ignore him, and not a day would go past without me receiving a message from him. I never gave him an ultimatum. I never said, ‘Leave your wife.’ The turning point was when I asked for child support.”
