"You Can Depend On Us"
From way back in 1964 while attending Boy's Foundation School (now called Christ Church Foundation School) I used to assist my father, the late Clyde B. Jones BCH, JP in the family business.
Currently, I am a Funeral Director at Clyde B. Jones Funeral Home Co. Ltd. and Manager/ Leader of the Troubadours International. During my music career I was also a session musician with the renowned Merrymen. My long music career occasioned extensive travel on promotional tours of some 14 cities in the USA, Canada—from Buffalo to Miami—and several countries in Europe.
Prior to that, I held various positions; in 1967-1970 as Stock Manager of BICO Ltd, 1970-1971 as Food and Beverage Supervisor of the Tamarind Cove Hotel and in 1986-1988 as Personnel Manager with BEL-TRONICS Ltd

In his own words … Julian, in an interview with the Nation Newspaper says "I love my job with a passion. My joy and fulfillment is to see the families (of the deceased) smile and appreciate how beautifully a loved one has been prepared. It gives me joy to see that I have helped to ease some of their grief".
