I Am Jackson: Trevor Jones

What is your hometown?

I was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. My father is originally from Jackson so I grew up visiting family and friends. I decided to move to Jackson in 2010 after graduating from Florida State University to help with opening and to start working at the original Coyote Blues. In 2014, I moved back to Florida but realized quickly that Jackson had become my home and returned about a year later.

What is your profession?

I am the Operations Manager for Rock’n Dough Pizza + Brewery and Jackson’s Kitchen and Catering. I grew up with a passion for food and cooking that grew into a career. I can remember being in the kitchen wanting to help cook before I was tall enough to see over the counter. One of my first jobs was as a waiter and I eventually moved into management as the opportunity presented itself.

What is an organization you are passionate about?

I have volunteered on the Black Tie Boxing committee since the event originated. Personally, being a type one diabetic for almost 32 years is what originally drew me to the cause.

What are some of your favorite things about Jackson?

My favorite things about Jackson are the people and the community. Growing up in a bigger city, you do not have the opportunity to connect with people on a personal level like you do here. There is something special about that to me.

Three words that best describe you.

Favorite thing to do in Jackson?

One of my favorite things to do in Jackson is to visit the Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings. I love browsing through all the fresh produce and local products. It is an amazing opportunity to connect directly with people producing them. Their passion and pride in what they do is inspiring.

What is one thing that you do not go a day without?

My family! They are my support, encouragement, and inspiration for everything I do.

Finish this statement, I AM JACKSON because…

This amazing community has so graciously accepted me and allowed me to call this place home.
