J.J. Jones


Roots & Legacies Consulting Inc.

While Roots & Legacies co-founder, J.J. Jones, will always consider northwest Kansas home, J.J. lives in -and loves, Kansas City.

J.J. has loved agriculture and food for, well … as long as he can remember. Whether it was riding countless miles on horseback with his father and brother, gardening with his grandparents, showing cattle and sheep or learning about wine varietals before he could enjoy them, J.J. recognized that agriculture and food are a common thread that connect us all.

We celebrate with food. We care for the less fortunate with food. Food is possible because of strong agriculture.

J.J. is a constant learner and found joy in high school agriculture education and later Kansas State University’s College of Agriculture. He has continued to enhance his agricultural and leadership skills from the strong foundation that was built growing up in a diversified agribusiness family and being an active member of both 4-H and FFA. Earning degrees in Animal Science and Industry as well as International Agriculture, then going on to work with a number of agribusinesses has taken him to every corner of Kansas, across the U.S. and around the world (J.J. has worked in over 25 international markets and is still counting) allows J.J. to put his skills and talents to work in empowering others to excellence.

J.J. is a strong leader in association management, communicating with various agriculture and food industry stakeholders and putting his passion for international agriculture to use in developing global markets for Roots & Legacies’ clients.

J.J. excels in turning data and information into knowledge and strategy as he works with clients to enhance their communications, marketing – both domestic and international, and association and project management.

J.J. and his partner, Kevin, enjoy all things food and wine! You can find them sharing meals with family and friends, singing in their church choir and volunteering with a number of organizations including the American Royal, Sheffield Place, Micah Ministry and the Cultivating Change Foundation.
