Serve to Change, Lead with Integrity, Value All Voices

alt="Jeff Jones, Broward County, FLORIDA"

I have been serving my community nearly 22 years by being a voice and advocate for those in the labor force. Now I want to do the same for everyone so I am running for Broward County Commissioner in District 6.

Mr. Jeffery “Jeff” Jones was “born” and grew up in the city of Hallandale as the youngest of 12 with his mother and father. As a little boy he loved school and dreamed of playing basketball day and night. All he wanted was to grow up and make a lot of money so his parents could be “happy”. He adamantly expressed he did not want to be a roofer, which was the only occupation he had exposure to during his formative years. Since he did not have any access or saw any representation of individuals that look like him in the business, medical, and education industries, he pledged to himself that he would be the change he wanted to see. Although there were several barriers that made his plight difficult, it was not attainable. He was determined to continue his education and excel in sports which motivated him to attend college. He would eventually become a successful international businessman.

Mr. Jeffery Jones, is a proven freight and logistics professional and industry leader and founder of Seaport Transportation Services, LLC dba STS Logistics (STS), a specialized freight forwarding service in 2014. With nearly 22 years of in-depth experience and deep insights into marine logistics, he provides sound judgment and decision making. In addition to his career accomplishments, Mr. Jones served 3 consecutive years on the Executive Board of the International Longshoreman Association. Currently, he possesses more than 8 different licenses and certifications related to federal maritime regulations, aviation, logistics, equipment, material, and cargo handling. Recently, Mr. Jones became President of U.S. Minority Contractors (USMCA) Miami chapter.

Through his personal and professional journeys, Mr. Jeffery Jones is a proven leader who provides strategic leadership to establish long-term goals, strategies, plans, policies and procedures.
