President of Jones Ready Mix
For the past 14 years, Jeremy Jones has served as the President of Jones Ready Mix. Jones Ready Mix, a ready mix concrete company, hauled its first load in July 2002 and has grown to become one of the largest independently owned concrete companies in South Mississippi.
Jeremy began his career with Jones Companies through employment at Jones Lumber Company at the age of 15. He trained and worked alongside his dad, Brett, and some of the invaluable original employees of the company and learned many valuable skills. Jeremy believes those skills along with the work ethic that he learned at an early age molded him into becoming the successful business owner that he is today.
As the business grew, Jeremy began to serve in employment in many different positions and capacities. Due to the nature of the businesses, he has filled positions as forester, diesel mechanic, welder, sawmill millwright, heavy equipment operator, and truck driver. He was instrumental in the building, development, and initial operations of Columbia Chip in 1997 and 1998. He has also worked with Dixie Mat in timber inventory and mat production.
Jones Ready Mix began when the family recognized the need for a concrete plant, but their intentions were to do in-house work only and supply the concrete needs of the family businesses. News of the new business venture quickly spread by word of mouth, and they soon realized that the business would be much more than that. Not long after its beginning, Jeremy became the sole owner and assumed the President's role of Jones Ready Mix. Jeremy believes his experiences from his early employment and in the different labor positions he has held give him an appreciation for the concrete business. Jeremy also realizes that a company is only as valuable as its employees and believes that he has the best team in the area. Jeremy and his team have proudly served South Central Mississippi and Washington Parish, LA for 14 years and take great pride in their service and the product they provide.
