Jerry R. Jones

May 23, 1934 — March 10, 2020


Jerry was born in Vernon, Texas to Hazel and Zannie Jones on May 23, 1934.  Jerry was a 1957 graduate of Zionsville High School.  He went on to become a proud veteran of the Korean War where he served as a forward observer in the 21st infantry.  Jerry cherished the American flag as a symbol of freedom he and so many fought for.  We thank him for his service.

After Korea, Jerry was a uranium miner in Colorado where he met Betty Godfrey.  The couple raised five children and after living in Denver, CO; Omaha, NE; and Atlanta, GA, they brought the family to Zionsville in 1968.  Jerry owned and operated Jerry Jones Plumbing and Well Service in Zionsville for almost 50 years.

Jerry had a grand sense of adventure and loved traveling.  He and Betty traveled the United States often in an RV and later to Europe where they spent four months seeing the sights.

Jerry is survived by his wife of 62 years, Betty; children, Tawny McLellan (Michael), Jerry Jones II, Janay Martin, and Justin Jones (Jill); 8 grandchildren; and 6 great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his son, Jesse Jones in 2017

No services are planned.  Memorial contributions may be sent to Zionsville American Legion Post #79.
