Shirley Jones on David Cassidy: ‘David Is Now with His Dad’

In a sweet statement released by Shirley Jones's (b. 1934) manager to multiple media outlets, the Oscar winner remembered her former stepson and co-star warmly.

Her statement, released Wednesday, references her late ex-husband Jack Cassidy (1927-1976).

It reads:

Long before he played my son on The Partridge Family, David Cassidy was my stepson in real life. As a little boy, his sweet sensitivity and wicked sense of humor were already on display, and I will treasure the years we spent working and growing together. I will also find solace knowing that David is now with his dad. My heart is with David’s daughter, Katie, his son, Beau, and with Shaun, Patrick, and Ryan, whom I know are deeply missing their brother today. Thank you for the enormous outpouring of affection you have offered our family at this difficult time.

Her lovely sentiments follow those of his half-brother, Shaun Cassidy (b. 1958), who tweeted:
