Tim Jones is many things. He’s a visionary. He’s a reformer. He’s an influencer.
He’s accomplished in 49 years what most can’t do in a lifetime.
This is his story.
Tim’s journey begins in Eureka, Missouri, where he grew up in a strong and supportive household. His parents inspired him to take responsibility for the direction of his life, and were dedicated to bringing out the best in their children.
Growing up, Jones recalled a common phrase from his parents: “Whatever you have, consider it a blessing, and be able to give it back.”
Those words became ingrained in Jones from a very young age, providing a strong foundation for who he would become.
Much of who Tim Jones is today can be attributed to what he learned from his parents.

On this particular day, an ordinary weekly task turned out to be something quite the opposite.

Schroer was a student at the University of Missouri in St. Louis during the 2008 Presidential election. Not happy with the result and the direction of our country, Schroer began to think about how he might be able to contribute moving forward.
That election started the slow burn of political engagement. It got even stronger when he was a student at Southern-Illinois University School of Law in Carbondale.
One day in his Constitutional Law class, one of his classmates made a radical claim suggesting that Roe v. Wade didn’t go far enough. It was starting to look like this individual was going to steamroll his viewpoint to the class and get off easy, unless someone spoke up.
That’s when Schroer took action.
