Rod Jones was born in Tasmania in the late nineteen fifties and is the second eldest of four children. He grew up in the small hydro village of Tarraleah located in the central highlands but then later moved to the North West Coast of Tasmania. Rod married Janine in March 2001 at Hawley House, Tasmania.

Rod and his family actively participated in many sports and as a young man, Rod took a particular interest in athletics and Australian Rules football. Now a Queenslander he is still a keen supporter and has been a member of the Brisbane Lions for the past eleven years. He competed at a high level in both sports until his late thirties and won a number of professional sprinting events including the Stawell Easter Carnival held in Victoria which is still considered to be the Melbourne Cup of professional athletics in Australia.

In his first job as an apprentice carpenter and joiner, Rod was awarded the Tasmanian Apprentice of the Year for 1977, and in his third year as an apprentice, he built his first family home. His work quickly evolved into project and contract management responsibilities with Matthews Constructions and Max Briggs Constructions in Tasmania, as well as Barclay Brothers in Darwin, Northern Territory in 1981-2. Throughout his career, Rod has also held many senior positions within the not for profit sector including group employment companies which employed thousands of apprentices and trainees. Most recently Rod has been owner/operator of his own retail/tourism outlet in Glenview. The responsibility of having three children at quite a young age presented Rod with a new outlook on life and, has taught him the value of hard work and the rewards that follow. The strong family values, morals and respect that were such an important part of Rod’s upbringing have now been instilled in his own children and grandchildren. It is these values and beliefs that Rod experienced which has driven him to ensure the same opportunities and fulfilling way of life that Australia has to offer, is given to all. Rod began his journey into politics and representing the people in the 2016 Local Government election.

Rod has a strong interest in volunteering and working with church-based charitable organisations and community groups for over 15 years, which includes holding such positions as President of the Glasshouse Mountains Rotary Club. In his free time, he enjoys a leisurely ride on his Harley Davidson with Janine and socialising with close friends and family.
