Dr. Jean Jones was the former director of the University Counseling Center. She was the first female director in the division of Student Affairs. While at Ole Miss, she was involved in many aspects of student life. Dr. Jones battled breast cancer bravely, but in 1997, the cancer won the war.


The Jean Jones Walk/Run for Cancer is a memorial walk for Dr. Jones, and an event to honor others who have been touched by cancer and bring awareness to the community.
