In Loving Memory of
Charles A. Jones
1937 - 2017
Mr. Charles A. Jones, Founder of Jones Mortuary in East Palo Alto, relocated to the Bay Area in the 1950's. After serving his country in the armed forces and furthering his education, he moved down the peninsula and established Jones Mortuary. In doing so, he fulfilled his childhood dream and for almost 50 years, Jones Mortuary has endeavored to provide quality service to the residents of East Palo Alto, its surrounding communities and the greater Bay Area.
Known for his empathetic knack for being calm in the emotional storm that follows the death of a loved one, he built a business that adeptly walks people through the details of saying final farewells to families and friends. On several occasions, Jones Mortuary has been recommended by members of the community to families who are in financial distress when the death of a loved one occurs. Mr. Jones through his compassion and caring, helped them to arrange services that were dignified, yet affordable.
Mr. Jones was always civic-minded and embraced ways to make a positive impact on his community. Throughout his life, he worked to help local and surrounding communities by using his business success to give back. He volunteered his time to local organizations; provided financial support to various groups, was a mentor to many, and he advertised with almost every minority organization that contacted him.
Mr. Jones was a man honored with God's divine favor.
