Jan Jones

Jan Jones, 62, passed away on Saturday, January 28, 2017, in College Station. A Memorial Service Honoring her life will be at 4 pm, Wednesday, February 1, 2017, at the funeral home, followed by a reception. Cremation Services are in the care of Callaway-Jones Funeral and Cremation Centers-Bryan/College Station.

Jan loved of all performing arts and taught ballet, point, tap and jazz dance for over two decades. Every dancer wanted to point their feet and turn out correctly to be just like Miss Jan. She instilled poise and the discipline of dance through her studio, LA Petite Academy of Dance, and touched the lives of hundreds of students and families. Jan thoroughly enjoyed performing with Stage Center for many years, remembering her time in “Vaudeville” as some of her most fun experiences. Following in the footsteps of her mother, Jan became a nurse in 1988 and dedicated the last 27 years of her life to nursing, retiring in March of 2015. Jan was deeply compassionate and caring for others, which led her to become a nurse. She served her entire career with St Joseph hospital, first in the Emergency Room and later in the new Express Care in College Station. She and her family took great pride in her accomplishments as a nurse and the care she showed her patients. Jan would frequently remember with a smile the irony of her father saying “good business” as an ambulance drove past with sirens blaring. Jan was also invested many years of service as a member of Beta Sigma Phi sorority, enjoyed worshiping with her parents at First United Methodist Church in Bryan, and loved to travel. Warm sand and salt water was always her favorite destination. Jan’s family and grandchildren were the joy of her life. The legacy of Jan’s kind spirit, passion for arts, love of travel, and zest for life will live on through them.

Jan’s survivors include her dearly beloved son Hans Hammond; her granddaughters Katie and Emily; her brother Jon Jones and wife Lisa; her nephew Chase Jones and wife Brittany; her niece Libby Corneau and husband Justin; other close friends.
