In Memoriam: Jimmie Jones, 82

Jimmie Jones, former publisher of Media News Group’s Times-Herald in Vallejo, died April 6, 2021, the newspaper reports. He was 82.

Jones began as a copy boy at the newspaper in 1956 and concluded his career as publisher in 1995, said his son, Victor.

“Mr. Jones was the publisher when I joined the Times-Herald in 1989, and we had a great relationship,” current Editor Jack F.K. Bungart said. “I enjoyed many great conversations with Jimmie. He was a positive force in the Vallejo community.”
