Was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 1993, and knighted in 2005, both for services to drama. Became a father for the first time at the age of 61 in 2001. His experience of nursing his partner Myfanwy Talog through breast cancer inspired him to create The David Jason Trust for terminally ill children.
