He was preceded in death by his infant daughter, Tenley Rose Jones, and grandmothers, Margaret Jones, and Shirley Lawson. Left to cherish his memory are his wife, Caity Jones of Bullard; parents, Brian and Sandi Jones of Rusk; children, Beau Jones and Saylor Jones; brother, Jacob Jones of New York City; and grandparents, Henry and Mary Vinson Jones of Rusk.
