James C. Jones

Not all operas end in tragedy. Jones, who gave up singing operas to work in the business world, continues to lead NAMIC’s education program as it emerges as a key development resource for professionals seeking career enrichment and for companies looking to take their talent to the next level. This past year, the organization’s Executive Leadership Development Program reached a milestone with total graduates exceeding 550 since the program’s inception. Jones devotes his time away from work to New York’s Housing Works. He praises the organization for “their profound understanding that HIV/AIDS is still with us and still affecting society on a myriad of cultural and socio-economic levels.”
