John Walter Jones, agriculturist, school teacher, legislator, and Canadian Senator, born in 1878, was the son of James Benjamin Jones and Isabel (Stewart) Jones of Pownal, Prince Edward Island. He received his education at the district's public school, Prince of Wales College, Charlottetown, Acadia University, Wolfville, N.S. and the University of Toronto. In 1909, he married Catherine Bovyer of Bunbury and together they had one son and three daughters.

J. W. Jones was the Principal of the Consolidated School in Mt. Herbert from 1905 until 1907 and an employee of the United States Department of Agriculture in Washington, D.C. from 1909 to 1912. He was first elected to the Provincial Legislature in the general election of 1935, re-elected in 1939, sworn in as Premier in 1943 and again re-elected in 1943, 1947 and 1951.
