Andrew Jones, 34

Andrew Loren Jones, son of Loren and Marlys (Petersen) Jones, was born in Minneapolis on June 26, 1979. As a result of a struggle with mental illness, Andrew took his life on Sunday, April 6, 2014 in Roseville.

He was a 1998 graduate of Jefferson High School in Alexandria. He continued his education at St. Cloud State University, graduating with an Accounting Degree. He later received his CPA license. Andy was currently employed as a commercial loan analyst with Lake Elmo State Bank.

Andrew was a very private guy with a great sense of humor, which we affectionately called "the Jones humor." He was a sweet, loving young man who will be forever missed.

Andrew is survived by his parents, Loren and Marlys Jones; brothers, Todd Jones (partner, Stephen Reed), Matthew Jones (partner, Kim Dillon); sisters, Tracy (Petersen) Belisle, Stephanie Jones (Sara Moore); nephews, Ben and Gabriel; and nieces Audra Jones, and Porter.

The loss of Andy leaves an empty space in the hearts of many, including aunts, uncles, cousins and friends Tim, Trent and Nate. Our lives will never be the same without our loving boy.

A memorial service was held Thursday, April 10 at Anderson Funeral Home. Memorials made in Andys honor may be directed toward the American Foundation for the Prevention of Suicide.

Arrangements are with Anderson Funeral Home in Alexandria;
