Why are you working in this industry? I take pride in our nation and the great American people.

 

What are three daily habits that have helped you to become successful? I strive to be in places on time, I believe in giving back more than you receive, and helping those you see struggling expresses the humanism in us all.

 

Who is the person who most influenced you in business? My father, Robert R. Jones

 

What is the best advice you have ever received? Never quit and failure is only one way not do what you need to get done.

 

What do you want to be doing in 10 years? I would like to be retired from the service and educating our next generation in the field of agriculture.

 

Where will we find you enjoying your hard-earned time off? I usually find that volunteering during my time off to build things is where I get the most gratification.
