What Made James Jones "The Cross-man"?


I was born in Cabool, Mo. on August 14,1954. My parents were Amos and Betty Jones. They were very Loving and caring Christian people, who have now gone to be with Jesus. I will see them again in heaven someday! Amen!

I met my sweet, Lovely wife Evelyn at an event called OLD TYME DAYS in Cabool, Mo. On Saturday evening in October, 1974. It took me an hour to just say hi to her and then another to get up the nerve to ask her for a date! Guess what she said? She said yes! I almost Freaked out! We were married on March 28, 1975 at the first Baptist Church in Cabool, Mo. Reverend Marvin Jacobs performed our wedding ceremony.

This union was blessed with two beautiful daughters, Sarah, and Jamie. Sarah was born on February 18th, 1976. She is married to Chris Burkhart and they have two children, Ryan and Madison. Jamie was born on May 30, 1979. She is married to Jason Frank and they have two children, Samuel and Sophia.

I work for the city of Mountain Grove, Mo. in the water department. I also do some roadie work through a production company, setting up for concerts, etc. I also do speaking engagements. Evelyn and I are both members of the First Baptist Church, in Mountain Grove, Missouri.

Thank You & God Bless You!
