Remembering Esteemed SCA Professor Robert C. Jones

Dear SCA Family,

It is with deep sadness that I am writing to tell you of the passing of Robert C. Jones, who was a celebrated editor and screenwriter, and a beloved professor at our School. During his illustrious career Bob was nominated for Academy Awards for Film Editing for It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963), Guess Who's Coming To Dinner (1967) and Bound for Glory (1976). He won the Oscar for his screenplay for Coming Home.

SCA was lucky when Bob joined the faculty and he taught 508 and 546 for many years before retiring from the industry. In addition to teaching students to edit he supported, and even helped boost, their passion for filmmaking and storytelling in general. Bob was known for being patient and kind, and for a great sense of humor. He engaged students in the School’s hallways, joking with them and literally being a source of joy. He wasn’t just a mentor to students, but also his colleagues on the faculty, and members of the staff. Without a doubt he was one of the School’s most loved professors.

Bob is survived by his wife Sylvia and daughters Hayley Sussman and Leslie Jones. I will be sure to pass along details of a memorial, or other event, when we receive them.
