Former NFL CB Pacman Jones has been trending on social media lately, due to his boxing debut loss, to Bobby Laing. Now, Jones is discussing how he decided to adopt former Bengals teammate Chris Henry’s children, following his tragic death, in December 2009. Henry’s death occurred after falling off a moving truth, following a domestic dispute with his then-fianceè, Loleini Tonga,
Jones appeared on Shannon Sharpe’s “Club Shay Shay” podcast and was visibly emotional when discussing bringing Henry’s children into his family.
“We love each other hard,” Jones explained. We cry together, we pray together, we do everything together. We all family.”
Henry had three children, which are Seini Henry, Chris Jr. Henry, and DeMarcus Henry. Henry was initially supposed to marry Tonga in 2010 but argued in December 2009 about the costs of that upcoming wedding. Henry’s mom ended up deciding to donate his lungs, corneas, liver, kidneys, pancreas, and heart to help four people who needed them in life-saving situations.
Jones only played half a season with Henry in Cincinnati. Jones played with the Bengals from 2010-2017 and had a lengthy overall career from 2005-2018.
