Texas A&M-Commerce President Dan Jones passed away this morning. Texas A&M University System Chancellor John Sharp sent this message from the Texas A&M System: “Dan Jones was one of our great presidents. He had a vision for the future that was brilliant and courageous. We will make sure his plans become reality. We will miss him greatly.”

I kindly ask that faculty work with any students who might need special accommodations during final exams week.

According to the Jones Family, arrangements are pending and the family requests both privacy and prayers at this time.
