Benefactor and namesake of the J.A. Jones Library at Brevard College, James Addison Jones was the founder of J.A. Jones Construction.
Jones was born in 1869 in North Carolina. Like many Southerners, his family was impoverished as a result of the Civil War. A classic American success story, Jones received only a few years of education in a one-room schoolhouse but went on to manage detailed, complex, multimillion-dollar construction projects. In fact, Jones was credited with helping to construct much of the Charlotte, North Carolina skyline during his time.
