Shock reverberated throughout Jonesboro on Thursday upon hearing the news that Alvin “Kim” Jones, age 60, had unexpectantly passed away. The 1980 Jonesboro-Hodge High School graduate leaves a legacy of a lifetime of unselfish public service either in the official position as an Alderman, which he served for two terms, or as an advocate and voice for the betterment of the Town of Jonesboro and Jackson Parish.
Jones was born on January 7, 1962, to the late James Jones and Bobbye Jean “Minter” Jones. After graduation from high school Jones worked at Stone Container Corp for several year before spending 22 years at Union Bee Pine Belt Headstart.
Cherishing his memory is daughter Y’Wanaki “Kiki” Jones; brother James “Artize” Jones and grandchildren Jaylen Kendrick, Jason Blackburn and Jhy Williams. Also left to remember him is six aunts and a host of nieces, nephews and friends. He is preceded in death by his sister, Debra “Jones” Hunter.
Visitation will be held on Friday, February 25th from 12:00pm – 6:00pm at the Paradise Funeral Home in Jonesboro. Funeral services will be held at 1:00pm on Saturday, February 26th at the Hodge United Pentecostal Church with interment followings at the Sandhill Baptist Church Cemetery.
