Derek Jones Fiancee

He suffered a loss himself last November as he lost love of his life way too early. His fiancee Christina Cetta suffered from metastatic cancer and ultimately lost her life. However in the meantime, it looked pretty good for her, but the disease returned in 2019. Jones then launched a campaign on GoFundMe to collect $ 100,000 to pay for her treatment. Falling in Reverse created for this extra t-shirts that fans got for their donations. He said,

“She’s my life and the best thing that ever happened to me. We’ve been together for ten years now, and I’m looking forward to 100 more.”
