In this interview, I had the opportunity to interview Peter Lawson Jones, a prominent Cleveland-Shaker Heights figure as a lawyer, public official, and actor.  I met Mr. Jones last week at our annual ORSA Conference at Cleveland State University after his keynote address.

To listen to the show, click on one of the following:

Mr. Jones shares riveting stories about his parents, his professional journey, being a proud husband and father, and the responsibility of citizens to be involved in the political process.  Here are some of the highlights:

  • his parents being involved in significant civil rights activities, such as Tuskegee Airmen, the Negro Baseball League, and pioneers in several other regards
  • appreciating the sacrifices others have made and building on that
  • the concept of read with expression, which has been a foundation for many things in his life
  • Values of service, integrity, hard work, selflessness, and education
  • how his experience at Harvard and Harvard Law continues to serve him to this day
  • managing his energy levels and time
  • encouraging involvement in the political process, starting with educated voting, a fundamental tenet of our system
  • important legislation he helped craft that he is proud of, such as the Ohio Commission on Fatherhood
  • Matthew 25:36 passage

Mr. Jones can be reached at peterlawsonjones@gmail.com or peterlawsonjones.com
