Marshal Charles Jones was killed by debris as the result of a controlled explosion.

The city engineer had requested Marshal Jones keep citizens at a safe distance as the city demolished an old stanchion pipe. When the controlled blast occurred, a piece of the pipe struck Marshal Jones in the side, killing him.

Marshal Jones had served with the Jacksonville Beach Police Department for 15 years. He was survived by his wife.

Charles Benjamin Jones was my grandfather. I never knew him but heard many family stories, including how he died. I have a copy of the newspaper account of the accident and his wedding photo to my grandmother, who remained at Jacksonville Beach her whole life. I will try to get the photos I have to your site to add to his file
