Our History


The Mike Jones Kidney Foundation was created in the memory of Mike Jones. Mike passed away suddenly on March 07, 2013. Mike’s passing effected so many in a profound way that we could not expect. Shortly after his death a group of friends and family decided to come together to create the Mike Jones Kidney Foundation, keeping his dream alive of helping those with kidney disease.

Deeply rooted in both of Mike’s passions for donor education and jazz, the MJKF.org was founded in 2014 by Mike’s birth father Willie E. Williams – Charter Member of California Association of Independent Accountants, Andrea L. Adams – Music Management, Margaret D. Maier – Kidney Donor and Board Certified Medical / Surgical Nurse through the ANCC*, The Honorable Lee W. Tsao – Los Angeles Superior Court Judge, and Greg Adams – Grammy® and Emmy nominated trumpeter, arranger.
