The Jones High School Foundation’s (JHSF) mission is to fund and support empowerment programs for the students, faculty, families and administration of Jones High School. Jones High is a Title I (high poverty) public school, with 86% of its students receiving Free or Reduced lunch. The JHSF will focus on enhancing the academic and enrichment programs at Jones High School (JHS) to empower its current students and sustain its 100 plus year legacy of producing some of the finest citizens in the state of Florida and our nation. JHS has produced some of the most distinguished leaders in the world in the fields of Science, Music, Law, Military, Entrepreneurship, Performing Arts, Education, and Athletics.

Donate In Memory of James Weldon "Chief" Wilson.

"Chief" Wilson was an historical icon at Jones High and the city of Orlando. "Chief" Wilson built one of the most successful high school band programs in the nation that has excelled for decades - TWO World's Fairs, 1976 Bicentennial celebration in Washington D.C., Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, National Memorial Day Parade in Washington DC & Carnegie Hall. But his legacy went beyond music. Known as a compassionate but demanding educator, his standards of excellence resulted in many of his students becoming some of the most successful & prominent citizens in the nation - judges, doctors, lawyers, business men & women, educators, band leaders, & hundreds of college graduates. Your donation will support the Jones High School Marching Tiger Band & continue his legacy. NEW MARCHING TIGER BAND UNIFORMS WILL HONOR "CHIEF" WILSON WITH AN IN MEMORIAM PATCH. The award-winning band that Chief Wilson started currently needs new uniforms. Each uniform will cost $650. Donate $10 or more per month. Also, consider sponsoring a band student at $650 or $50 or more per month. CLICK HERE TO DONATE!
