News from Imperial Sir Jack Jones, Imperial Recorder,

Due to the unfortunate and untimely death of Imperial Sir Terry McGuire, it became necessary to select a replacement to fill his position as Deputy Imperial Potentate for the 2009-2010 term. It was the unanimous decision by the other Imperial Officers that Imperial Sir Jack H. Jones, Egypt Shriners, he be selected to fill this position. Imperial Sir Jack accepted. He will be nominated in San Antonio at the Imperial Session and is expected to pass with flying colors.

Jack H. Jones of St. Petersburg, Fla., is serving his 30th term as Imperial Recorder for Shriners International. He was re-elected during the Shriners’ 2008 annual international convention – or Imperial Council Session – held in St. Louis June 29-July 3. As Imperial Recorder, part of the 13-member body that helps govern the Shriners fraternity, Jones is responsible for the administrative duties of the Shriners.

In addition to serving as Imperial Recorder, Jones is director of Masonic Relations and Membership Development at Shriners International Headquarters, working closely with Grand Lodges, the Scottish Rite, York Rite, DeMolay and other Masonic organizations throughout North America, and developing stronger ties and more effective membership programs.

His Masonic affiliations include Egypt Shriners, Hillsborough Lodge #25, F.& A.M., Tampa York Rite, Tampa Scottish Rite, Red Cross of Constantine, Royal Order of Jesters, Order of Quetzalcoatl and National Sojourners. He is a Scottish Rite 33rd degree, Inspector General Honorary and a recipient of the DeMolay Honorary Legion of Honor. He is an active member of the DeMolay International Supreme Council and chairman of the Shrine’s DeMolay Committee.
