Bio

Congressman Jones has had the privilege of representing Eastern North Carolina for over 22 years. During his time in office, Congressman Jones has been a strong voice for an effective, commonsense government that returns power and control to the people. As a man who believes in the strength of faith and family, he has worked to represent the citizens of Eastern North Carolina with honor and integrity.

Throughout his twelve terms in office, Congressman Jones is probably most proud of seeing the conclusion of a 14-year journey to clear the names of two Marine pilots, Maj. Brooks Gruber and Lt. Col. John Brow, who died in a V-22 Osprey crash on April 8, 2000 that killed 17 other Marines. In the days following, Gruber and Brown were unfairly blamed by the Marine Corps for the crash. For 15 years, Jones petitioned the Department of Defense to correct the record and clear the names of the pilots, and in 2015, the Department of Defense issued a statement that clarified they were not at fault.

Congressman Jones is also a member of the House Committee on Armed Services. As a senior member of the committee, he has concentrated on safeguarding the well-being of our nation's veterans and active service members. In that role, Congressman Jones has sent over 11,000 letters to the families of our brave service members this country has lost in duty and has co-sponsored more veterans' legislation than any other sitting member of Congress.

Another important accomplishment for Congressman Jones was working for three years towards the declassification of the 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001, which revealed Saudi Arabia was complicit in aiding the attacks.After years of continued efforts with his colleagues former Senator Bob Graham, Congressman Stephen Lynch, and Congressman Thomas Massie, Congressman Jones was glad to give 9/11 victims' families and the American people more facts of the tragedy, and ultimately, more closure.

In addition, Congressman Jones has been a leader in fighting the U.S. trade deficit and leveling the playing field for American workers, as well as curbing special interests in the election process. He has always been very outspoken on his pro-life views, and has fought to protect the free speech of military chaplains as well as all members of the clergy. Finally, Jones is committed to preserving and protecting North Carolina's unique history and culture. In 1998, he passed legislation to protect the wild horses on Shackleford Banks of the Cape Lookout National Seashore. Since then, he has worked with numerous North Carolina legislators, including Senators Burr and Tillis, continuing to preserve the state's wild horses in places such as Corolla.

Congressman Jones drives home to Farmville every weekend to his wife Joe Anne and his dog, Darby. They have one daughter, Ashley.
