Where is Edward D. "Ted" Jones, Jr. in the Hall of Famous Missourians?

Ted Jones was a visionary. As a businessman, he recognized an opportunity to bring a highly personalized brand of financial services to investors in communities of all sizes. He created a unique business model based on the value of personal relationships. In addition, he and his wife, Pat, shared a passion for nature and conservation, and a love for the farmlands of Missouri. Where others saw an abandoned railroad right-of-way, Ted envisioned a state park. Thanks to his generosity and determination, generations of Missouri residents and visitors can enjoy the Katy Trail.
