Sculpting a Neosho Native

Jeffery Jones' career came back around & beyond.

Who is Jeffery Jones?

NEOSHO, Mo. - If there's one thing Jeffery Jones has mastered other than sculpting life-like structures, it's his ability to see a greater cause than his own success: his community's.

Since moving back to Neosho, Jones and his wife, Donna, have found themselves immersed in Jeffery's hometown in so many ways. From sitting on boards for local organizations to operating The Clay Cup, a coffee shop/pottery studio hybrid, their role in Neosho's evolution is part of their journey.

For Jeffery Jones, his experiences around the world have brought him back home, and more equipped to contribute to Newton County than when he left. His experiences as a commercial sculptor helped him hone his craft, while simultaneously preparing him to decorate his hometown with his work.

Paintings, pottery, murals, a 35-foot tall Santa Claus, or a 6-inch tall Shaquille O'Neal.

You name it, and there's a good chance Jeffery Jones has done it.
