Tom Jones


Tom Jones passed away on Wednesday, for those outside of Track & Field he was the women’s track and field coach at University of Florida. His passing will truly be a lose to the sport of Track & Field. He was a real gentleman, a true worthy opponent. Tom was one of our original lead instructors in the Coaching Education program. His presence really helped lend credibility to the fledgling program. Tom will be missed by all those who knew him. My condolences to his family and the University of Florida team, you were truly blessed to have a coach like Tom.
