Chad worked as a Deputy with the Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office for over seven years until he was successfully elected as Pct. 4 Constable, taking office in 2017. He quickly became very popular with the citizens of Pct. 4. I would like to extend my condolences to his wife and children. As members of Constable Jones’ extended law enforcement family, we will be another arm of support to the Jones family during this difficult time.”

Yesterday Kaufman County Precinct 4 Constable Chad Jones passed away due to a medical issue. Chad was a not only a constable he was also my personal friend and a WONDERFUL friend to Kaufman County Storm.
