Memorial funds donated to the Medina County Park District
by family and friends of Thomas B. Jones, P.E., were utilized
to design and construct an educational kiosk in honor of Tom.
The kiosk, located at the northeast end of the Hubbard Valley
Dam illustrates the history of the Chippewa Subdistrict and its
primary function of providing flood protection within the Chippewa
watershed in Medina and Wayne Counties.
Tom Jones, along with many other individuals, dedicated his
time, hard work, community service and knowledge to help improve
the quality of life of residents within the watershed.
Tom was a project engineer for the Chippewa Flood Control Project
as an employee of the Soil Conservation Service for thirty years
during which time the idea of the project was developed and implemented.
After his retirement, he continued his work and dedication to
maintaining and improving the functionality of this valuable flood
protection project until January 2005 when he lost his courageous
battle with cancer.
