Thomas Jones ’79

Tom grew up in eastern Oregon and attended the University of Oregon before transferring to Reed. A psychology major, he wrote his thesis on the effectiveness of behavioral treatments for insomnia with Prof. Leslie Squier [psychology 1953–88]. He went on to earn a master’s in political sociology from the London School of Economics and a master of philosophy in sociology from the University of Oxford. A producer/director of both television and film, Tom owned his own production company in San Antonio, where he produced and directed commercials. He also worked as a sports marketing consultant.

Tom’s most memorable times were spent with his family and working with San Antonio youth, both as a soccer coach and as a volunteer for Central Catholic High School’s Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps. Survivors include his wife of 22 years, Amy, sons Trevor and Riley, his parents Harold and Betty, and his brother Tim.
