Art Jones, a 1982 Hampton Bays and 1986 Hamilton College alumnus and athlete, lost his life in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. The AJJ Scholarship Fund was created to keep his memory alive in the hearts and minds of all who knew and loved him by empowering young men and women, who resemble his likeness. Art attended Hamilton College on a basketball scholarship and ultimately worked at Carr Futures in the World Trade Center.
Art was first and foremost a family man. He took great pride in being the best husband and father he could be, but was also a devoted son, brother, in-law, uncle, and friend. Art had a charm and magnetism that attracted people of all ages and could light up a room with his ever present smile and twinkling, mischievous eyes. He had an effortless way of making people happy and making friends wherever he went, and his friendships meant the world to him. Many of his friends from high school, college, and work became connected, and new friends were always joining this ever-expanding circle.
Art possessed an incredible love of life, and lived each day with passion and tremendous enthusiasm. He was always doing something or planning the next event. When he wasn't working at the trading desk at Carr Futures, or spending precious time with his children, he loved going to concerts, Broadway shows and movies, watching NASCAR, cooking, reading, golfing, enjoying a good cigar and glass of wine, and going to sporting events. College basketball was his favorite, and he was crazy about March Madness.
The AJJ Scholarship Fund exists to raise funds for this important scholarship. Both the cocktail and golf outing are. beautiful testaments of Art's life, his family, friends, and of his ability to bring people together, in the legacy of love that he left behind, in support of children..
