Jay Jones '06

Keynote Speaker & Distinguished Alumni Award Recipient

For Jerrauld “Jay” Jones ’06, the path to leadership is in his blood. The son of lifelong public servants—his father is eight-term Del. Jerrauld Jones and his mother lawyer Lyn Jones—he knew he wanted to lead and serve his community at an early age.

This January, Jones was sworn in to represent the 89th District in the Virginia House of Delegates, becoming the youngest current member of the General Assembly. With his appointment followed roles on the General Laws, Transportation and Finance committees. 

As a teen, he gained significant experience with the Virginia legislature, serving as a page in the Virginia House of Delegates in 2003 and as a legislative intern to former Dels. Paula Miller and Algie Howell.

Outside of his political duties, Jones serves on the boards of the Boys and Girls Club of Southeastern Virginia, Festevents Ltd., the Elizabeth River Trail Foundation and the Old Dominion University Athletic Foundation’s Next Generation Board. 

He completed his undergraduate studies at the College of William and Mary where he double majored in government and history. After graduation, he became an associate with Goldman Sachs where he focused on risk management and rating advisory. He then obtained his law degree from the University of Virginia, whereupon graduation began practicing law in Norfolk. He is currently a partner with Bischoff Martingayle P.C.

In his spare time, Jones enjoys cheering on the Tides at Harbor Park and attending festivals, concerts and other events around Norfolk as well as spending time with friends and family.
