Having been born in Texas, Jane Cameron Agee was equally raised in the US. She is an American citizen and belongs to the white ethnicity. Furthermore, Jane’s parents are John Wesley Agee and Shirley Fugate. Apart from their names, nothing else is known about her folks. Until her death, she never revealed anything about her siblings or family members to the public.
While we know that Jane Cameron Agee was a smart and intelligent woman, we cannot confirm if she was well-schooled or if she had a degree because information about her academic qualifications is not available on the internet.
James Brolin’s Ex-wife was an Actress
Before Jane Cameron died in 1995, she used to be an entertainer. As an actress, she made amazing appearances in some American movies and TV series. For instance, she was featured in Tattletales, The Merv Griffin Show, This is Your Life, It’s Your Bet, and The Mike Douglas Show.
However, her career was short-lived, thus, she’s mostly recognized for being married to James Brolin. Besides being an actress, Jane Cameron Agee was a wildlife activist during her lifetime.
She Became James Brolin’s Spouse 12 Days After Meeting Him
Jane Cameron Agee is widely recognized as the first wife of the American actor James Brolin. Though she was an entertainer, Jane Cameron Agee was in the shadow of her ex-husband’s fame because he was very popular.
It is very easy to tell how the late Jane met her ex-husband, James Brolin. Even if one is not certain, it would be a safe assumption to say that they met in the line of duty since both of them were actors.
While that assumption will not be wrong, we can precisely say that the former sweethearts met on set, and their love story began during the production of the TV series Batman (1966–1968). At that time, Jane was working as the assistant director of the series. She was also a potential actress for Twentieth Century Fox, while James Brolin was featured as Kid Guiliver in the series.
Things went rather too fast with the pair, so much so that they fell madly in love with each other, and exactly 12 days after they met, Jane Cameron Agee walked down the aisle with her lover, James Brolin, in 1966 in what could also be used as a script for a romantic movie.
To several onlookers, it was a whirlwind romance that would soon burn out. However, while it is true that it didn’t last forever, their love did not burn out for the next 18 years – contrary to popular opinion.
In 1984, Jane Cameron and James Brolin went their separate ways after completing their divorce proceedings. Despite fans’ curiosity to know the reason behind their split, none of the pair have explained the reason to the media. It could be that they fell out of love, became too busy, or had irreconcilable differences. Whatever the case was, it’s known that their separation was amicable.
After the divorce, Jane, who had two kids with James, remained unmarried till her death, while James Brolin, on the other hand, move on to find love elsewhere.
Jane Cameron Agee Has Two Sons
As mentioned earlier, Jane Cameron Agee has two grown sons with her former spouse, James Brolin. Their sons are named Jess and Josh Brolin. Just two years into their union, Jane Cameron had her first son, Josh Brolin, on February 12, 1968, while her second son, Jess Brolin, was born on February 7, 1972.
Like his dad, Josh Brolin is an award-winning American actor. He is well known for his roles in Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and The Goonies, among others.
Jess Brolin is also an actor like his dad and brother, but despite appearing in a couple of screenplays, Jess is not as famous as his brother and father. He is also not considered successful compared to his folks.
If alive today, Jane Cameron Agee would be a grandmother because her eldest son, Josh, has been in and out of several marriages (three, to be precise) and is the father of four children, including; Eden, Wesley Reigh, Trevor, and Chapel Grace. For Jess, nothing is known about his personal life and relationships.
She Lost Her Life in a Tragic Car Crash
Jane Cameron Agee was born in a beautiful city (Corpus Christi), but her life can’t be said to have radiated such beauty. First, her relationship collapsed then her life seemed to have taken a cue.
After she ended her marriage with James, Jane spent her time raising her kids, but she died a day after Josh’s 27th birthday. On February 12, 1995, Jane was involved in an auto crash. The automobile she was in ran into a tree, and died the following day in Templeton, California.
According to her son, Josh Brolin, he had just spoken to his mom four hours before she passed. Just like every other tragedy, Jane Cameron’s death greatly affected her sons but in different ways. While Josh turned the tragedy into motivation to do better, Jess did otherwise.
Jess, who had a six-figure trust fund, invested it into living a luxurious life and soon ran out of cash, and some reports online allude to the fact that he is obese and homeless.
