Charles “Chuck” Jones, MSFS, CLU®, ChFC®, CASL®, CAP®, a loyal alumnus and a member of both The American College Board of Trustees and The American College Foundation Board of Directors, passed away on April 30, 2013.  He served as a Trustee for four years and on the Foundation Board for seven years.  Chuck was the owner and chief executive officer of Pentrust, LLC, a provider of business, estate and financial services with offices in Kansas City, Missouri.

His professional achievements were well known.  In 1966, Chuck moved to the Kansas City area in order to join the Connecticut General Life Insurance Company, a predecessor to CIGNA.  Over the course of his career he contributed to the success of numerous prestigious financial services organizations including the Commercial Union Companies, the Business Men’s Assurance Company of America and John Hancock.

Chuck’s many contributions to The American College were recognized in 2008 when he was inducted into The American College’s Alumni Hall of Fame.   At the time of his induction, only three other individuals had ever been inducted into The American College Alumni Hall of Fame.

The American College extends its heartfelt condolences to the entire Jones family.
