Jerrold (“Jerry”) Lynn Jones
August 28, 1970 to November 12, 2020

Jerry died of a heart attack at the young age of 50, doing what he loved - concrete work for American Rock Products in Pendleton, Oregon.

Jerry was born on August 28, 1970 in Springfield, Oregon, to Charles A. Jones and Janet L. (Olson) Jones. He attended all 12 years of school in Mena, Arkansas and graduated in 1989.

In 1991, Jerry moved to Washington and in 1994 he married Shannon Nunn who is the mother of his three children, Kay-Cee, Cassidy and Carson. They would later divorce and he remarried Kimberly Joyce Powell in 2012. Jerry and Kimberly lived in Walla Walla, Washington.

Jerry had a true zest for life and genuinely loved living. He embodied fun and was always up for an adventure, whether a cross-country road trip or just the latest roller coaster. He was always quick to help someone in need, whether he knew you or not. He loved the ocean and one day hoped to retire in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, to drink Mai Tais with his wife while wading in the crystal blue waters off the white sand beaches. Above everything though, being a father and grandpa is what gave him true meaning. His children and his granddaughter were his world and gave him an immeasurable sense of pride. His passing leaves an unfillable void in this world.

He is survived by his mother, Janet L. Jones Lambert; his wife, Kimberly J. Powell; his children, Kay-Cee, Cassidy and Carson Jones; his granddaughter, Lilly Marie Sohler; his   brothers and their spouses, Kevin and Tami Jones of Costa Mesa, California, and Ken and Shannon Jones of Conway, Arkansas; nephews, Drew and Sam Jones of Fort Smith, Arkansas, and Jacob Jones of Conway, Arkansas; niece, Savannah Jones of Conway, Arkansas; and, several aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was predeceased by maternal grandparents Lewis A. and Ruth D. Olson; paternal grandparents Ralph W. and Juanita Jones; and, his dad, Charles A. Jones.

No memorial service has been immediately planned but will be forthcoming. The family will notify friends and loved ones when the service is scheduled.

To celebrate Jerry’s legacy, contributions can be made in his name to the following entities to help benefit the community he loved so dearly: 1) Blue Mountain Action Council, online at; and, 2) Rotary Foundation of Walla Walla, PO Box 418, Walla Walla, 99362.

My dear friend Jerry Jones; as my buddies/friends sat at "our" table at the Cowboy Club in Kennewick, you walked into a new bar with your beaming smile and confidence to look around wondering if there was an empty table. We welcomed you and from there out, you were my friend. Dancing at the club and riding my horses was a fond memory I will hold close to my heart. I will miss your dear, honest, genuine soul. Lord be with you my special friend.
