Joseph Jones, BBC’s Real Estate Development Director, will be retiring after nearly eleven years of service with the organization. Joseph will leave BBC on March 30, 2014. He contributed to all of BBC’s successful real estate development projects including Bridgeport Place retail center, Bridgeport Café and Cornucopia Place, and the Villages of Central among others.
Joseph also worked closely with many community residents, especially senior citizens, through BBC’s home repair assistance program. He counseled many area businesses through our small business assistance program.
Joseph brought a wealth of knowledge to his position. Before joining BBC, Joseph owned his own construction company and worked many years as a Quality Assurance Supervisor at Day Glo Corporation in Cleveland. He is also a licensed realtor. While working at BBC Joseph earned his Master’s Degree in Social Work from Case Western Reserve University and became a licensed Social Worker by the State of Ohio.
Joseph is known by staff for his words of wisdom and witty sense of humor. A lasting quote from Joseph is “There is the way things appear to be, and there is the way things really are. BBC has succeeded because we always dealt things the way they really are.”
Joseph’s wife Denise retired from the Ohio Office of Unemployment in 2012. Now that Joseph is retiring, they plan to travel the world together and spend more time with their five children and five grandchildren.
We wish Joseph all the best in his retired life and thank him for his years of dedication to Cleveland’s Central and
