As one of several pilots from the 1st Helicopter Squadron at Andrews AFB during the time General Jones was Chief of Staff of the Air force, it was a great privilege and honor to have flown him on several occasions. Recollections of the flights will always be fond memories of having served a great man.
My prayers are with his family.

I met General Jones as a E-1 private in 1975. I had recently entered Medic School at Ft. Sam Houston TX. We had a 3 day break so this home sick W.V. boy got leave and signed up for a military hop home. That hop was on General Jones flight! He was on his way to Germany by way Dover AFB where he would depart on a connecting flight while I would continue on to Andrews AFB where my Dad would be waiting to pick me up for our 90 minute drive home. The plane took off and climbed steeply. I was doing my best trying to sit at attention in the back of the plane, my eardrums trying to burst due to sinusitis and the quick ascent. The General saw me grimacing and yelled, "Hold on there soldier," while he quickly opened up his brief case from which he handed me a piece of Bazooka bubble gum! Here I was, the lowest rank in the military being helped by the highest ranking officer in the Air Force and soon to be Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff! That was nearly 38 years ago and I have never forgotten his kindness. Please accept my tearful condolences for such a larger than life, kind, and compassionate man.

I had the privilege of serving General Jones as his back-up driver in 1977 and 1978 while CSAF. He was a brilliant man who served his country selflessly. My sincere condolences go out to his family and friends.

I first met General Jones when I was a young major in 2007. At the time, I was writing a leadership biography on him as I was a student at the Air Force's School of Advanced Air and Space Studies. As part of the research, we corresponded quite frequently and met twice in person for day-long interviews. He was an outstanding leader who contributed much to our nation's security during troubled times. I fondly remember our talks as well as the insight he gave me into our military. My thoughts and prayers our with his many family and friends. Farewell and God bless you General Jones for all you did for America.
