The late David Crosby and his wife Jan Dance attend a special screening of David Crosby: Remember My Name, hosted by Sony Pictures Classics and The Cinema Society in New York on July 19, 2019. The singer wore his signature knit hat with a blue shirt and black blazer as he snuggled his wife closely. Jan herself looked elegant in a simple black dress with gold necklace.
David wed his wife Jan in 1987, however, the two only share one child. David was, however, father to six kids — including fathering two with his friend Melissa Etheridge and her partner Julie Cypher: the late Beckett, and Bailey. His eldest child is James Raymond, whom he had with Celia Crawford Ferguson when he was just 21. He then welcomed daughter Erika Keller Crosby with ex Jackie Guthrie, followed by daughter Donovan Crosby with Debbie Donovan. He and wife Jan also have a child, Django Crosby.
David sadly passed away on Jan. 19, 2023 after a “long illness,” his wife confirmed. “It is with great sadness after a long illness, that our beloved David (Croz) Crosby has passed away,” Jan said to Variety in a statement. “He was lovingly surrounded by his wife and soulmate Jan and son Django. Although he is no longer here with us, his humanity and kind soul will continue to guide and inspire us.”
“His legacy will continue to live on through his legendary music,” she continued. “Peace, love, and harmony to all who knew David and those he touched. We will miss him dearly. At this time, we respectfully and kindly ask for privacy as we grieve and try to deal with our profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers,” she also said.
