"I have found my work for the Herbert B. Jones Foundation to be very rewarding, because I knew and admired Herb as both his friend and financial advisor throughout the twenty years of our association," said Mike Bauer. "In my participation on the Board, I try to bear in mind how Herb would want us to allocate the money he left in our care. I think not only of his generosity in setting up the Foundation, but I remember him also as a caring person. I think he was the only person I ever met who really never said anything negative about somebody else--it just wasn't in his nature. If there is a common thread that runs throughout the comments which other friends have made writing this life story, it is this: Herb Jones was a true gentleman."
