In Memoriam

Sara Liz-Anne Jones ’91

Sara Liz-Anne Jones ’91 passed away peacefully in her home this morning, January 28th. Thanks to the generosity of friends, her final days were filled with the sounds of a crackling fire and the sight and smell of daffodils. She was overwhelmed with gratitude for all the support she received throughout her last few months.

Sara was a beloved daughter, sister, and friend. She is survived by her father Graham Jones, her brother CJ Read-Jones, her sisters Jackie Valerio (Will Valerio), Jenny Jones (Kimberleigh Jones), Debbie Norris, and by her niece and nephews Ashley Valerio, Tyler Valerio, Trey Norris, and JJ Norris. 

Sara led a life of service. She was a long-time volunteer with the American Red Cross, the Amateur Radio Club, the Sheriff’s search and rescue patrol, and the Yale Club of San Diego. She was a tireless advocate for sexual harassment survivors. She never missed an opportunity to connect people who might help one another. 

A consummate educator, Sara loved helping people get from where they were to where they wanted to be. This passion took many forms, from middle school teacher to disaster consultant to special education aid to leadership coach. She always informed and inspired when she taught, and always with great preparation. In her spare time, she read, gardened, baked, and trained for triathlons. She held a black belt in ninjutsu. She was a modern day renaissance woman.

In lieu of flowers, Sara has requested donations be made to either the San Diego Chapter of the Red Cross or St. Peter’s Church in Del Mar. She would also like you to remember that the fifth is for flowers.

On a more personal note, I am indebted to Sara as the one who encouraged me to re-engage with Yale after a more than 25 year absence.  I found her friendship and counsel to be invaluable through the subsequent years.  She will be missed.  I can only hope that I may lead by her example for the benefit of Yale Alumni.   — Jason P. Luján ’89. YCSD President
