MENDOCINO NATIONAL FOREST, Calif. — Forest Supervisor Wade McMaster announced Roy Jones will step in as the acting Grindstone District Ranger, following the departure of Loren Everest, who recently transferred to the Plumas National Forest on the Feather River Ranger District.

Jones will be on board for 120 days.

“I want to thank Loren for all he has done for the Grindstone and Mendocino, and I wish him well on his new adventure on the Plumas,” said Forest Supervisor McMaster. “I also want to thank Roy for stepping up while we move forward with the hiring process for the permanent position.”

In 2001 Jones began his career with the Forest Service on the Shasta-Trinity National Forest working on a type-3 fire engine.

After completing the fire apprenticeship program, Jones joined the Mendocino National Forest as a permanent assistant fire engine operator in 2004, and was later promoted to fire engine operator and engine captain positions.

Jones has served in his current role as Safety Program manager for the Mendocino National Forest since 2018.

In 2022 he completed a 120-detail as a deputy district ranger on the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, Trinity River Management Unit and South Fork Management Unit.

“I look forward to serving and supporting the Grindstone in the district ranger position,” said Jones.

In his spare time, Jones enjoys hunting, fishing and spending time with his family.
