Warren JonesRESTON, Va., November 2007 – RVIA mourns the passing of Warren Jones, one of the association’s founders, who died on November 18, 2007 at the age of 86.

Jones was a key figure in the association’s history, playing a leading role in the merger of RVI and the Trailer Coach Association (TCA) in 1974 to form RVIA. He helped guide and grow the new association in its formative years, serving as RVIA’s first chairman of the board from 1974-1977. After his term as chairman, Jones continued to serve on the RVIA Board of Directors and remained active on several committees through his career.

“Warren was a respected industry leader and a guiding force in the creation and development of RVIA into the association it is today,” said RVIA President Richard Coon. “More importantly, he was a man of great character and leadership. Our industry has lost one if its pioneers.”

In 1946, Jones founded Hehr International and built the company into one of the leading providers of glass products, windows, windshields, motor vehicle parts and accessories to the RV and automotive industries.
