"Mr. Joness is probably one of my favorite instructors. He's a pleasure to have, as a student, and I couldn't be more grateful. He really cares about what and who he is teaching. Thanks for a great semester! I only wish he had more classes; I'd sign up immediately."
"Prof. Joness is probably the most incredibly nice teacher I have ever come across. His patience for the subject matter and students is exemplary. He will go out of his way to help anyone who lags behind or has a hard time understanding something. He added an extra Sunday workshop using his free time for those in need. I enjoyed his teaching a lot."
"I Took his CS952 class and it was amazing! Professor Joness took time out of his busy weekend to meet with myself and other students and help them work on the assignments while tutoring, explaining concepts, or how to get a desired webpage effect, or look. This was dedication. Run don't walk to this class, you'll be glad you did. I know I was!!"
