Bryan Jones

Bryan Jones ’99 has a long history with his alma mater, having spent the last 20 years on the SPU campus — first as a student double-majoring in physics and biology, after that as an admissions counselor, then as a University Advancement gift officer, and finally, since 2014, as director for alumni and parent relations.

Through the experience of being a student, an admissions counselor, and a development officer, Bryan developed a unique perspective. By working closely with students, parents, and friends of SPU, he is keenly aware of how vital both scholarships and financial aid are for a student’s success.

That knowledge continues to inform him in his role as director of alumni and parent relations as he connects with alumni and parents, inviting them to help SPU into a bright future through student mentoring, professional networking, financial support, and volunteer service.

“I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to serve and collaborate with our alumni and parents,” he says. “Seattle Pacific alumni are absolutely critical to the future success of this wonderful place.”

Born and raised in Richland, Washington, Bryan is married to Kristen Goetz Jones ’01 ’05, MSN ’09. They are parents to three future Falcons, a daughter and two sons. The family enjoys the outdoors, especially hiking and camping, and serving in First Free Methodist Church.
