Jason Jones is a native Georgian, raised in Barnesville, GA. His father spent his career at the Department of Transportation before passing away when Jason was just 17 years old. His mother worked in a textile mill before becoming an LPN, ultimately working as a caregiver for the elderly. From a young age, as the youngest of three children, Jason grew up with a lot of independence and inner-drive. This propelled him into leadership roles throughout school including becoming a class officer in student government.
After completing his Associates Degree in Sociology from Clayton State University, Jason went on to earn his Doctorate degree of Pharmacy (PharmD) at Mercer University. He has worked as a Pharmacist since 1989, mostly for independent pharmacies. In 2015, Jason purchased Lithia Springs Pharmacy, which has continued to grow and change over the last five years. He has truly excelled in “the business of business” and continues to seek new opportunities to expand business ownership and management.
Jason is married to his high school sweetheart, Bethany, who he has known since childhood. They have raised two sons, Jared and Asher, and now have a beautiful daughter-in-law, Victoria two grandchildren, Xander and Georgia. Through the years, they have also taken in several youth in need. Two of these, Heather and Shean have remained in the family.
Prior to moving to Douglas County, Jason owned a small farm in Henry County where he raised Belted Galloway Cattle and Buff Orpington Chickens. In 2007, the Jones family moved to Douglasville and became fully invested in the community through church, schools and now owning and operating their pharmacy business.
Jason and Bethany are deeply involved in their church, Atlanta West Pentecostal Church in Lithia Springs. They have worked with youth groups and led a college and career bible study called Impact for six years. Bethany also directed their youth choir. Jason is involved in the Georgia Pharmacy Association, the Douglas County Republican Party and the family often participates in the county school activities and Cultural Arts Council events.
“Isaiah 30:21 – Whether you turn to the right or to the left, you will hear a voice behind you saying, this is the way, walk in it. As I considered stepping forward and pursuing public office, that piece of scripture truly resonated with me — we need to find our way, and go down the right path to achieve success and prosperity. I will learn from others and be an informed and respected voice at the state capital.”
