Meet the Clarion: Pressman Sean Jones

Sean Jones is on his seventh year and counting with the Peninsula Clarion.

Sean Jones is on his seventh year and counting with the Peninsula Clarion while working with the production team in the press room.

“While coordinating with others as part of a team, the production department operates and maintains the printing press with the goal of producing a high quality newspaper by a given deadline,” Jones said of his role with the paper.

Jones was born and raised on the Kenai Peninsula, graduating from Nikiski High School in 2008.

“My favorite part of growing up was helping my dad with his fishing guide business,” he said. “It was a lot of work, but in exchange we got to go whitewater rafting all over Alaska. We had some really cool adventures.”

One of his favorite memories of an adventure was heading to Haines with his family on a road trip.

“We drove all the way there and back in my dad’s old Suburban stuffed with camping gear, towing a trailer with two rafts. We camped all along the way, went rafting down a bunch of different rivers. That trip really stuck with me,” he said.

This summer, Sean is looking forward to spending more time fishing with his dad whenever he’s not working.

Quarantine and taxes

When the first stay-at-home mandates came out, I jumped into it with a “carpe diem” kind of energy.

Ready, set, edit!

Even as a follower of Jesus, we can often feel like we keep needing editing.
