BUSINESS MAN.

Businessman and State Senator Burt Jones has a proven track record of success. As the Founder and President of J.P. Capital Insurance, Incorporated, Jones is knowledgeable in the business arena, and his company is proudly located in Jackson, Georgia. His father, Bill Jones, is the Chief Executive Officer of Jones Petroleum Companies of Georgia, a foundation that has set a business precedent. The organization has over 600 employees. Burt’s founding company, J.P. Capital Insurance, Inc., is one of five companies owned by the parent company Jones Petroleum Companies.

Burt has a passion for business and believes that business knowledge is a key component for anyone wanting to succeed. The first few years after founding J.P. Capital Insurance were challenging but typical for most new business ventures, yet Burt and the team remained persistent and dedicated and eventually would see the fruitfulness of their efforts. In a recent interview, Burt said:

“One has to constantly want to perfect his or her craft. It’s not always easy to pursue dreams because life will certainly throw curveballs. One has to keep the drive and passion to continue to win.”

After ten years in business, J.P. Capital Insurance opened a new location in Middle Georgia and has received several awards, including Agency of the Year by Donegal Insurance Group.

“Burt Jones is a good man with a good head on his shoulders. There seems to be a shortage of those in government.”

– Herman Cain

FAMILY MAN.

Burt Jones is undoubtedly inspired by the success of the family business, but he is also equally inspired by the woman he considers his rock. He and his wife, Jan, were high school sweethearts. Jan holds a BBA in Marketing & Economics from Southern Methodist University & an MBA in Finance from Auburn University. In a recent interview, he affectionately credits his wife as a huge part in his success as a businessman and elected government official, saying:

Jan is the brains of my immediate family. She knows me better than anyone. She is an exceptional wife and loving mother to my two kids. She holds it all together for me and the children. She lights up a room.”

When she is not keeping Burt and the kids out of trouble, Jan volunteers with other locals at her own entrepreneurial humane society called “Butts Mutts,” which focuses specifically on dog rescue. They have been instrumental in not only finding homes for abandoned dogs, but also teaming with local animal control to save the lives of dogs all over Butts County. Since becoming involved with the Butts County Animal Shelter, their group has transformed it from a 90% kill shelter into a shelter with a 90% adoption rate!
