Keeping Up with the Joneses
This Carlsbad Family Shares Stories of Busy Lives, Mice, and Love at First Sight
When Jason Jones decided to travel from Arizona in 1999 to Silver Lake Resort, his family’s business, to help with the Labor Day weekend, he never imagined the result. Alison was there vacationing with her parents. Her father thought he saw mice in their cabin, so while she hid under the sheets, Jason came in to lay traps. He thought Alison was a little girl hiding, but when she came out, Jason could see this was not the case. It was love at first sight!
Jason and Alison Jones have been Carlsbad residents for the past eleven years. Jason has worked almost ten years at Wimmer Yamaha and Caughey, where he is the Senior Associate Landscape Architect/Studio Manager. His firm is currently involved in the development of the city of Carlsbad’s Alga Norte Park, opening in 2014. Alison works for DeRoyal Orthopedics as a Senior Account Representative of San Diego and Las Vegas. She has worked there for almost two years, and is striving toward President’s Club.
Alison is the North County local, having grown up in Encinitas. “Growing up in North County, we knew this would be a great place to raise our girls.” Those girls are Tailor and Kaili, born on December 15, 2004 and now third-graders at La Costa Meadows Elementary. Alison’s mom, dad, and sister’s family all live in 92009 within a few miles of each other. “My sister Bethany Britt has two boys to my two girls,” Alison shared. “Our kids are best friends and so are my sister and I.”

During the school year, the Joneses favorite hobby is soccer. Both girls play competitively for the Carlsbad Lightning, with Tailor playing defense and Kailli at midfield. Their team won the Presidio League this past year and are looking forward to State Cup in February. But when vacation time comes around, particularly Labor Day weekend, the family fun continues. Jason’s dad, Gary, and brother and sister-in-law, Andrew and Alisa, are now running the Silver Lake Resort, and this trip is a Jones family tradition, along with three of their very best friends and their families. This Labor Day weekend will be Jason and Alison’s fifteen year anniversary of that first fateful meeting. “It is a very special weekend that we all get to celebrate together with our family and friends.”
