Jeffrey Lynn Jones, 64, of Selma Ohio, passed away unexpectedly at The James Cancer Center in Columbus, Ohio, on Wednesday, May 22, 2024.

Jeff was a lymphoma survivor and had been in remission for the last 20 years. He took advantage of that second chance in life by enjoying every moment. He always woke up in a good mood and always had his beautiful smile on his face. He loved being outdoors while gardening, mowing, riding his Harley or watching the Kansas City Chiefs or OSU play. Jeff’s favorite hobby and greatest achievement was watching his daughter, Mya, play her sports, attend her school activities, and grow into the beautiful young lady that she is today.

He worked for the Clark Co. Engineers for the past 10 years and made wonderful friends and coworkers.

Jeff was very respectful and helpful to those who were older and never passed up an opportunity to thank a veteran for their service to our country.

His love for his family and friends was unquestionable, and if you were fortunate to be in his circle, it was for life.

In his gracious generosity that Jeff was known for, he has donated his body for organ donation and research to The James Cancer Center.

Jeff was very active in the Clifton community and could be found volunteering and helping with all community activities whenever he could, to make them successful, and although he held to his Baptist upbringing, he attended the Clifton United Presbyterian Church for the last 13 years.

Services will be held Saturday, June 1, 2024, at 3 p.m., at the Clifton UP Church, 183 N. Jackson Road, Clifton, Ohio 45316, with a Celebration of Life Reception after services at Reese’s Barn, 1414 Cortsville Road, Cedarville, Ohio 45314 (byo alcohol).

Jeff was preceded in death by his parents, Jonathan Jones Sr. and Estella (Hall) Jones, of Yellow Springs, Ohio; and his sister, Jennifer Ward, of Xenia, Ohio. He is survived by his wonderful daughter, Mya Lexy Jones; the love of his life, Paula Lazorski; his twin sister, Janice, who has shared his life with the special “twin” bond from the beginning; Judy Harris, Jonathan (Sonny) (Tanice) Jones Jr., of Arizona; Joyce Harding; Jimmy Jones (Jennifer); his nephew, Robbie, with whom he shared a special bond, and Robbie’s wife, Krista (Prether) Harding; and many loving nieces, nephews and cousins, who will miss his presence everyday.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The James Cancer Center in his name to advance the research to find a cure for cancer.

Jeff’s favorite color was blue, and he would love to see everyone who comes to celebrate him in blue — as long as it is not a Michigan blue.
