About JJ Jones

Vote James “JJ” Jones as your next sheriff



Time for a new generation of leaders to step up!

My name is James “JJ” Jones and I am wanting to be the next sheriff of Bartow County.

I moved to Bartow County with my wife Janice (Robinson) Jones who is a proud 1975 graduate of Cass High School and a Captain in the U.S. Army. After having 2 children (JJ Jr & Patrick) my wife wanted to get out of the Army and move back to her hometown of Cartersville and teach school. Since then we had another child (Desmond). My wife went on to teach for 28 years at Mission Road elementary school before retiring in 2018.

During my 36 years living in beautiful Bartow County I have:

  •  Graduated from KSU with a BBA in Management while working full time as
    a campus police officer.
  • Worked 20 years in Human Resources Management.
  •  Coached numerous kids in Bartow County, some who are in prestigious
    positions in Bartow County. I would like to say that I have been a major
    influence in the lives of a bunch of young men in Bartow County.
  •  I have been a motivational speaker for numerous high schools and colleges
    throughout North Georgia.
  • Worked 3 years for the Bartow County Sheriff Department.
  • Opened a Fitness Boxing studio called TKO in Bartow County.

My 3 sons went on to graduate from Woodland High school and go on to play college baseball. My youngest, Desmond had a 4-year minor league stint with the Washington Nationals. They have since been very vital in working with the youth in giving back to the community.

Bartow County is my home and I love it here. As your next Sheriff I want to make Bartow County a safe and secure place for our kids and grandkids to live! The safety and livelihood of the citizens of Bartow County is my priority!!

Your safety, and the safety of our children, is my top priority.
