I served 13 years in the United States Marine Corps. in 2006, During my time, I served on the initial assault into Iraq in 2003 as well as operations in South Korea. I finished my service as a Sergeant. I graduated from the Bryan School of Business with a degree in Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate. I started my life insurance agency in my junior year of college, which now employs over 200 agents nationally. I also had my online marketing company very profitable before graduation, which is still alive and well. In 2010, I started Royal Limousine, which is now the Triads largest limousine company and number 1 rated by the Triad Limousine Association. From 2012-2014, I owned a full-service day spa in Jamestown. After selling 360 Day Spa, I reinvested that money into forming Jones Legacy Transportation, which is a trucking company located here in High Point as well. I am also currently running for the seat of City Council for High Point Ward 5 in the 2017 upcoming election.
