GHS Alumni and Gloria's colleagues and friends Fran Zumwalt, Class of 1972, and Linda Piece, Class of 1967, wrote for the GUHSD Board Memorial of Gloria, "The Grossmont District is sad to share that Gloria Jones, a much beloved 30-year Grossmont High School ASB Advisor and teacher of US History in the district for 38 years, passed away on June 18, 2018. Gloria Jones instilled in her students a love of country and the importance of being active in the democratic process. Ms. Jones guided students, taught them to think critically, and to problem solve. Ms. Jones' former students have posted many memories of her on the Grossmont High School Facebook page, revealing her impact on Grossmont graduates even today. Ms. Gloria Jones will be greatly missed by the Grossmont community."
