Intelligence Specialist Serves Those in Need

Jake Jones CCAS’10, GSC’13 spent almost a decade, from 1992 through 2001, serving in a military intelligence capacity in the U.S. Army at bases in Massachusetts and New Jersey. After leaving the Army, Jones, a native of Parlin, New Jersey, earned an associate’s degree in music and enrolled at Rutgers–Camden with plans to become a music teacher. He earned an undergraduate degree in music and built on that study with a master of liberal studies degree.

In graduate school, he gravitated to working with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, a field where he has excelled. He has served in several directorial positions—most recently, chief executive officer of The Arc Gloucester, a nonprofit agency. Jones, who was honored with a leadership award from the New Jersey Association of Community Providers, is secretary for the Veteran Alumni of Rutgers University. “Rutgers–Camden provided me with everything I needed to get to where I am today,” he said.
