ABOUT THE JCS PROJECT
In 2014 founder, Tiffannie Jones, started The JCS Project: JCS stands for Just College Students. It all started when my little cousin, Taylor Jones, enrolled at Blinn College. I felt like it was my responsibility to provide for her. Having no college experience myself it fell upon my heart to start providing FREE College Care Packages to her, a few other cousins and co-workers children. What started out as 5 girls has now expanded to thousands of students receiving Free College Care Packages.
My name is Tiffannie Jones and I am the visionary behind The JCS Project. I was born in the 5th Ward area of Houston, TX and later raised on the Southwest Side. After graduating from Robert E. Lee High School I was Blessed to find a job that I have been employed at for 20+ years. I am the proud parent of two beautiful children, Theory, a current college student and Jayse a high school student.
HONORARY BOARD MEMBERS
Since JCS is an organization that supports college students we thought it would only make sense for it to be ran by college students!
As of 2020 when JCS Ambassadors graduate they can then become apart of the board.
It is our Board Members that make the decisions and organize all the amazing events and programs we offer.
The future of JCS looks mighty bright.
