Jose Jones Memorial Tournament



This past June the volleyball community across the country lost a great referee, commissioner, colleague, promoter, mentor, coach, and devoted friend in Jose Jones. Jose’s work to create and grow volleyball opportunities influenced the lives of thousands throughout the country.

Before Jose’s passing, he was the Tournament Scheduler for the NCVF championships and many other aspects of the championship series. Jose was also currently the coach at UW-Eau Claire and the former coach at Bethel College in St. Paul. Jose was the commissioner for the Northern Intercollegiate Volleyball Conference and the Midwest Plains Volleyball Conference. Jose Jones will be greatly missed throughout the volleyball community.

In efforts to keep Jose’s legacy alive, the UW-Eau Claire and Bethel Men’s Volleyball team will be hosting at 20-team two-day tournament on the weekend of February 23rd-24th at the McPhee Educational Center on University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire’s campus. The entry fee for this tournament will be $200. Half of the proceeds from this tournament will go to charity in honor of Jose Jones.
