Wells Fargo Advisor Jason Jones killed in plane crash on way home from NCAA championship game

'Ride to the game wasn't bad': Tragic last tweet of basketball coach before he and six others were killed in plane crash on their way home from NCAA championship game

Jones an impact player on court, in business


A Lincoln native and former Illinois Wesleyan basketball and baseball player, Jones was among seven people who died early Tuesday in a plane crash east of Bloomington. Jones was a point guard on highly successful basketball teams at Lincoln High School, graduating in 1987, and at IWU, where he was a senior co-captain on a 1991 conference championship team. Jack Secord first encountered him as a player at IWU, calling Jones “a feisty scrapper” who “made things happen.” “He brought a positive attitude and disposition to business,” Secord said. “This has been one of the very worst days of my life. It leaves a permanent hole in my heart. My heart breaks for his family.”
