Paul S. Jones
February 15, 1967 – December 10, 2018

Paul Stephen Jones died peacefully at his home surrounded by family in Longwood, Florida, at the age 51. Paul was the beloved son of Leonard and Charlene Jones, wonderful husband of 29 years to Karen Jones, and loving father of Emily and Michelle Jones. Paul is also survived by his brother, Scott Jones, and sister, Stacey Khork.

Paul was the Managing Partner of the Orlando Office of Luks, Santaniello, Petrillo, & Jones, a Florida Insurance Defense Litigation firm. He was an expert in Civil Trial with more than 19 years of trial litigation experience in State and Federal court. Paul was selected by the Daily Business Review as Most Effective Lawyer in 2007. He spoke regularly to his clients and professionals on insurance industry related topics and current case law.

Paul was a devote Christian and held family bible studies regularly. He taught his girls the Word of God and baptized them in the pool at their home. He also demonstrated many acts of kindness in his day-to-day walk, from the shoeshine man who needed money for a family emergency to a family in a restaurant who couldn’t pay for their meal. He was selfless and compassionate and made a lasting impression on all he met.

A celebration of Paul’s life will be held on Saturday, December 15, 2018 at Highland Funeral Home, 3329 East Semoran Blvd., Apopka, Florida. The doors will be open at 10:45 a.m. for the funeral service with the graveside service beginning at 12 noon.

    I was a classmate of Paul’s not that long ago in High School. Lost touch as many do over the years but remember him fondly as always being upbeat happy and a friend to us all. From reading the post and updates from his daughter he lived and taught that wonderful trait. I know he will be missed but his legacy will live on.

    It was my privilege to know Paul as counsel for co-defendants, as an adversary and as a friend and colleague. Paul was good person. He was a consummate professional who treated everyone with courtesy, dignity and respect. He had an outstanding knowledge of the law which was exceeded only by his even deeper understanding of people. He will be missed. My sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues.

    Paul was a very special person in my life both personally and professionally. He was beloved by all who knew him. I am deeply saddened by his passing way too soon. But at the same time I know his life was one worth celebrating. He was the total package. Paul was a relentless advocate for his clients, yet demonstrating the highest of ethical standards. He was a true, loyal friend with a warm smile and engaging personality. Most of all, he was a man of deep faith who cherished his family above all. I will miss him dearly.
