  • John D. Randazzo, Esq., Hawthorne, NY

    I am deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Judge Jones. He was a distinguished jurist, a great person to know and a breath of fresh air to any trial lawyer who has had the good fortune to work with him. His opening and closing remarks while complete, were from his own mind, not merely recited from the Pattern Jury Instructions. His smile, demeanor and professionalism will be sorely missed. My sincere condolences to his family.

  • Ray Cardona

    This is such sad news. Judge Jones was a true advocate for justice through diversity in the Court System. He will be truly missed.
