Dick Jones

Me and my toys!

 My name is Dick Jones and I was born and raised in a small town in northern California called Willits. After high school graduation I went into the Air Force for four years and spent almost the entire tour of duty in England. I then went to college in Oregon and finally started to work as a mechanical engineer in 1966. Since then I have had job titles like design engineer, production engineer, payload engineer and so on. I am a commercial pilot with multi-engine and instrument ratings and am a photographer. I like flying, water skiing, tennis, golf, swimming and pretty much anything that doesn't involve work. I retired from Sandia National Laboratory in 2003 and have been consulting for them since then. I still have an aerial photography business and my wife and I help babysit four of our six grandkids. I also talk to school kids about career choices.
