In June 1995, the former Learning Resource Center at Forest Institute was dedicated in honor of Dr. Francis D. Jones. 

In 1955 Dr. Jones moved with his family to Springfield where he became the first psychologist in private practice, beginning a career of service which would span nearly forty years. 

Dr. Jones was a founding faculty member of the Springfield campus of Forest Institute where he holds the distinction of being the first Dean of Students.

A skilled clinician and educator, respected supervisor and mentor, Dr. Jones served as a model of Forest's philosophy to enrich, advance, and serve.
