Throughout their professional careers, Vashti Jones and her husband, John, lived in Maryland. Upon John’s retirement in 2007, they relocated to Virginia where John was raised. Their original goal was to relax and enjoy boating and fishing. However, both became earnestly involved in their church and many community organizations – leaving very little time for recreation and relaxation.

Vashti’s community involvement has included serving on the board of Lancaster/Northumberland Habitat for Humanity from 2008-2013 and serving on the board of Linking Hope and Help, Inc. (The Link) from 2012-2017. Although no longer on the board, she continues to work with The Link – as a member of its Advisory Council and as a coach in its Coaching Program. In addition, she is an active participant in the Interracial Conversations Group of the Northern Neck of Virginia.

Vashti and John are dedicated members of Mount Olive Baptist Church in Wicomico Church, where they serve in various capacities. John and Vashti are committed to family and much of their joy comes from their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
