MAHWAH, N.J. – On the night before “This Is Us” star and Paterson native Ron Cephas Jones was slated to give Ramapo College of New Jersey’s commencement address, the Mahwah college announced that he would not be attending the ceremony.

“We regret to share with you that late this evening … Ron Cephas Jones, our Commencement speaker, informed us that he is unable to join us tomorrow due to unforeseen travel complications,” the college posted to Facebook Wednesday night.

“While he will not be with us at Prudential Center, he is sending a message to be shared with the Class of 2017,” the post went on.

Cephas, who plays William on the hit NBC drama, is a Ramapo alum.

The commencement was slated to begin Thursday at 9 a.m.
