A statement from Jones' office said he passed away Sunday afternoon in Greenville. With a kind heart and the courage of his convictions, he dedicated his life to serving his Savior and to standing up for Americans who needed a voice.
Jones had been placed in hospice a few weeks before his death and had recently undergone surgery for a broken hip.
Jones, who represented his North Carolina district for over 20 years, was fighting off several illnesses over the last few months, according to Fox News, and was granted a leave of absence in late 2018 after missing several votes on the floor.
Jones, a Republican, was first elected to the House in 1994 and won 12 more terms, including in 2018 when he ran unopposed in the general election. He had been re-elected to his 13th term in November and had announced he would retire at the end of the term.
After the Iraq War ended, Jones continued with his stance on deployed troops overseas, becoming a major supporter for pulling servicemen out of Afghanistan. However, he later regretted authorizing then-President George W. Bush to use force to topple Saddam Hussein.
"Today, North Carolina lost a strong advocate and I lost a friend". "And it's very special to me because it goes back to my regretting that I voted to go into the Iraq war".
Prior to his election to Congress, Jones served 10 years in the North Carolina House of Representatives. The statement gave a nod to Jones' deep faith. "God be with and keep his family".
'I will miss his humility and unwavering love of his community, ' Butterfield said.

To serve alongside Walter Jones was a great honor and privilege. He attended Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia during high school and then graduated with a bachelor's degree from Atlantic Christian College - now known as Barton College - in 1966.
