Kenneth E. "Ken" Jones was born in 1927, in Indianapolis. He served as sports director at WHTN-TV in Huntington and was a member of the West Virginia Sportscasters Association. The year before his death he was named Sportscaster of the Year. He was 47 and left a wife, Lois Anderson Jones, as well as three sons: Kristopher, Jeffrey, and Phillip.
On a rainy hill side in Wayne County, West Virginia, the lives of him and 74 other people were lost in the worst single air tragedy in NCAA sports history. Among the losses were nearly the entire Marshall University football team, coaches, flight crew, numerous fans, and supporters. The event marked a boundary by which an entire community would forever measure time... before or after "The Crash". God bless those whose lives were lost on that evening; We honor those men and women who made a mark in the hearts of a school, a community and a nation.
Rest peacefully, for all eternity.
