As the Chief Visionary of The JLJ Foundation (formerly Healing Through L.I.F.E.), Mrs. Jones suffers from not just one chronic illness, but three. She lives with Epilepsy, Lupus, and Diabetes, and each of those illnesses allows for her to be a support system to others living with a chronic illness.
She has volunteered with the National Office of the Epilepsy Foundation of America, as well as participated in the National Walk for Epilepsy. Currently, she is listed on the Lupus Foundations Speakers’ Bureau, and also participates in the DC Walk to End Lupus. Mrs. Jones has worked under Semper Associates speaking for the STRIVE Step Program through the M-NCPPC, where participants will learn teamwork, healthy life skills, and participate in service learning projects all while learning the art form of stepping.
