JONES: James Leo Jones (October 6, 1958-February 8, 2021). Unexpectedly, in his 63rd year, Jim passed away at home due to a pulmonary embolism while living with a diagnosis of cancer. He is survived by his mother, Mary Margaret (Peggy) Jones (nee Strohman); his siblings Gaye Sheardown, Dorothy (Shayne) Armstrong, Sheri (Orland) Usick, and David (Yoke) Jones; 10 nieces and nephews and 4 great nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his stepfather Frank Jones. Jim was born in Neepawa and grew up on the farm in Brookdale. He received a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Manitoba and moved to Ottawa to begin his career with the Federal Government. He was contemplating retirement from Canada Post and a return to the prairies to reconnect with the land at the time of his death. Although he was a very private person, Jim always showed up for his family and friends. His steady, solid presence will be deeply missed. Donations in Jim's memory may be made to support cancer research or to a charity of your choice. A graveside service will take place in Neepawa at a later date.
