Carl Lamar Jones, an estate developer, and a significant contributor to the growth of north Jackson, has passed away at the age of 89. Carl was born in Jackson, TN and passed from this life in Ciudad Victoria, Mexico on November 14, 2023.
Throughout his life, Carl made contributions to both the community and was a real estate developer. His presence alongside the Bypass and Oil Well Road became synonymous with progress and prosperity.

Carl was baptized at West Jackson Baptist Church at an early age. He successfully graduated from Jackson High School before pursuing further his education at Baylor University. His commitment to learning laid a strong foundation for his future endeavors.
Beyond his accomplished professional life, Carl will also be remembered for his deep passions outside of work. He had an ardent love for hunting dogs and horses but above all else cherished the moments spent with his family. Their bond was undeniable and brought immeasurable joy to each member.
