Roger Wesley Jones Jr. ’66

Published in Mar. 8, 2006, issue

Roger died peacefully Dec. 27, 2005, surrounded by his family. Two weeks earlier, a few hours after decorating a Christmas tree with his wife and daughters, he had collapsed from a brain aneurism and cardiac arrest. He never regained consciousness.

Roger came to Princeton from Lakeside School in Seattle. At Princeton he majored in Russian studies, played freshman squash and varsity golf, and reigned as University pocket billiards champion. He served as president of the Young Republicans and as treasurer and president of Whig-Clio. Roger belonged to Quadrangle, where he was bicker chairman.

Following service as a lieutenant in the Navy, Roger graduated from the University of Washington Law School. He practiced law in Seattle for his entire career, specializing in real estate and estate planning. He had a deep interest in the arts and in works of beauty, and was justifiably proud of the 3,600-piece stained glass window and the Koi pond he built for his home.

Roger lost his first wife, Bettylou, to cancer when she was 42. Five years later he married Linda. In addition to Linda, Roger is survived by his daughters, Jenni, Teri, and Julie, and two grandchildren. They have our deepest sympathy.
