JOHN JONES III, COMMUNITY LEADER, ADVOCATE & BUSINESSMAN
John Jones III operates the East Side Riders Bike Club (ESRBC) with a simple mission: keeping the youth in Watts off the streets, out of gangs, and off drugs.

The Harbor-Watts BusinessSource Center is helping Jones to make his non-profit more self-sustaining.
