Chertann “CJ” Jones is a one of a kind treasure to the members of Iota Sweethearts, Inc. and the communities they serve.  She is committed to being a light in a day and time when our country needs it the most.  CJ carried this resolve in her early years at Central State University, her professional years in the hotel industry, and most importantly to the various ministries she has partnered with throughout her life.  


Her sometimes-comedic approach to team-building comes from years of performing for audiences with The Cincinnati Black Theater Company and Word of Deliverance Ministries. The actions that illustrate this light-bearing commitment are displayed in her candor, integrity, laughter, and love for people.  

There is no better person to explain CJ's character than her husband, Darren L. Jones.  As a 22-year member of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc., Darren knows a thing or two about quality leadership.  He, himself, demonstrates this as a Work Leader with the Cleveland Clinic.

“Chertann is a strong leader who believes in the best of everyone.  She pushes you toward your goals with grace and wisdom.  Her taking on this role for ISI will undoubtedly prove to be another successful two years in the history of this great organization.“- Darren Jones

This country needs more leaders like CJ to stand for righteousness and justice in our communities.  She is determined to embrace, enable, equip, educate, and encourage the members of Iota Sweethearts, Inc. to effect positive change in each other and the world around them.  Stay tuned!
