George Jones ' widow, Nancy Jones , has established the George Jones Scholarship Fund at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, TN. More than $171,000 has already been raised for the fund.

Nancy says, "George received help from people as he strove to have a country music career, so I am thrilled that we will be able to help young people in the name of George Jones. I know he would have loved this."

Jones passed away April 26, 2013. Nancy and the Jones family planted two dogwood trees at his grave in Nashville over the weekend.
