William Jones M.A. ’76 was a father, grandfather, brother, friend, Eagle Scout, avid surfer, and all-around “cool dude.” He discovered a passion for the ocean early on and dedicated his life to education. Bill taught almost every grade from kindergarten to college level. His work with students who navigated academic challenges was close to his heart, as he himself was diagnosed with dyslexia. Bill began his career at Monterey Peninsula College, where he was the learning disabilities specialist and taught a popular class called “Becoming the Master Student.” Bill prided himself on his involvement with Rotary International, the Flying Doctors-Los Medicos Voladores, and the Surfers Medical Association. Bill died on August 3, 2022.
