Throughout his 16 year career at UTC, Jones earned a reputation of kindness and selflessness.


The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga’s College of Engineering and Computer Science will honor the late Dr. Francis “Frank” Jones for his years of service to the college.

If you go

When: Wednesday, Oct 11 at 10 a.m.

Where: Engineering, Math and Computer Science (EMCS) Building, room 119

Admission: Free and open to the public

Jones’ former research space, room 199 of the Engineering, Math and Computer Science building will be dedicated in his honor.

Through the generosity of his family, an endowment was established in Jones’ name. A portion of this endowment will support the research and construction of a chemical energy-powered vehicle by students participating in the annual ChemE Car competition as well as the design and analysis of microreactors for the production of biorenewable fuels.

Among the speakers of the Jones Laboratory dedication is UTC alumna Dr. Stephanie Fraley.

After graduating from UTC in 2006 with a BS in chemical engineering, Fraley earned her PhD in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.

Fraley currently serves as assistant professor of bio-engineering at the University of California, San Diego. Her research involves understanding the multiple-scale physical and molecular contexts that drive complex cell behavior in sepsis and cancer. Through her research, she aims to improve understanding of immune modulated disease progression and develop new technologies for disease detection and personalized interventions.
