Each week O Heroes sits down with one of our student-athletes to get to know more about them on and off the field. This week’s feature is on Christian Jones, a senior on the Oregon Baseball team. A native to Danville, CA Jones is currently pursuing an undergraduate degree in General Social Science with a focus in Applied Business, Economy, and Society.

Jones plays an active role in volunteering throughout the Eugene/ Springfield community. His commitment to working with young kids parallels his dedication on the field and in the classroom.

Within the community, Jones has volunteered at numerous O Heroes events. As a weekly volunteer at the Boys & Girls Club of Emerald Valley, Jones enjoys spending time with kids and being a positive role model in their lives.

After graduation, Jones hopes to play professional baseball, and plans to remain an active volunteer within his community.
