Why Daniel is Passionate About Helping Injury Victims 

On December 26, 1999, at approximately 7:00 p.m., Daniel’s life changed forever.  His father, brother and Daniel were riding along Hwy 28 west of Pinola, MS; Daniel’s brother who was driving slowed the truck to crawl, for they had all seen the deer crossing the highway.  Unfortunately for them, the oncoming car did not slow down and struck a buck deer that was thrown onto the cab of their truck.  At that moment, Daniel’s father was knocked into a coma, with every bone in his upper face broken.  That coma would last until Daniel’s father awoke on January 13, 2000 at UMMC.  Daniel’s brother had every bone in his face broken as well, and would require surgery where metal plates replaced his bones. Daniel was left battered and bruised having seen more than he ever wanted to see.  Daniel’s father spent about three months in UMMC and Methodist Rehabilitation in Jackson, MS.  Daniel’s brother was off from work healing from his injuries for four weeks.  The insurance company sought to deny coverage, citing an “act of God,” and this is where the seed was planted for Daniel to help those who cannot help themselves.  Daniel has been there just like you, helpless, needing for someone to step up and come to his aid.  That is why Daniel has a strong desire to help those that have been injured through no fault of their own.

Daniel Jones was born and raised in Mendenhall, MS.  He is married to the former Linda Russell from Shivers, MS.  They reside in Madison, MS and attend Broadmoor Baptist Church.
