It is with profound sympathy and sorrow that I share the news of the passing of Board of Commissioner Vice Chairperson Doris V. Jones. Mrs. Jones passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 28, 2016. She was a dear friend, confidant, and advocate for the residents and staff of the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority, and she will be missed.
Appointed to the CMHA Board of Commissioners in 2001 by then Mayor Michael R. White, Mrs. Jones was later reappointed by Mayor Jane L. Campbell and Mayor Frank G, Jackson. [ Read more] Mrs. Jones chaired the CMHA Board Resident Affairs Committee and lived at Euclid Beach Gardens since 1983. She impacted the lives of so many residents and constantly advocated on their behalf. She was a tireless participant in CMHA and community programs. One of her proudest accomplishments was the creation of DJ’s Boutique, which offered gently used clothing or household items free of charge to CMHA residents. The boutique served nearly 10,000 residents in need. She worked tirelessly on their behalf and was a true inspiration and role model. Additionally, Mrs. Jones held weekly meetings at CMHA properties to hear the resident’s concerns and ensure their voices were heard. She worked closely with the agency-wide resident organization, PAC, and collaborated with the residents and CMHA administration to enhance the quality of their lives. In 2007, CMHA opened and dedicated the Doris V. Jones Court Senior Building off of Rocky River Drive in Cleveland to serve and house senior residents.
Her passion for helping residents and dedication to CMHA’s mission are treasured and she will forever have a lasting impact on the work we do moving forward. On behalf of former and current Commissioners, staff, residents, and community partners, we express our deepest appreciation for the vast contributions of Doris V. Jones. She leaves a legacy of excellence in service, and we will miss her every day presence. We are indebted to her contributions and accomplishments and extend our sympathies to her family and friends.
- Jeffery K. Patterson, CEO
