We at CCRC are deeply saddened to hear that our colleague Stan Jones has passed away. As the founder and president of Complete College America, Stan was profoundly influential in bringing together governors and policymakers from more than 40 states, higher education leaders, researchers, and others to work together to significantly increase the number of students who earn a college credential. Stan had a genius for simplifying complex messages for maximum impact. We will miss the many lively discussions that we had with him, and we will remember Stan as a deeply caring friend who was, first and foremost, a dedicated and effective advocate for students. Our thoughts are with Stan's family and his colleagues at CCA.
