Lake Jones

Lake Jones (February 10, 1867 – June 7, 1930) was an American lawyer and a United States federal judge.

Born in Vicksburg, Mississippi, Jones was a clerk and inspector for the U.S. Postal Service from 1885 to 1909, and then graduated from Northwestern University School of Law with an LL.B. in 1909. Jones was in private practice in Jacksonville, Florida, from 1909 to 1921, and was district counsel for the United States Shipping Board, Emergency Fleet Corporation, from 1921 to 1924.

President Calvin Coolidge nominated Jones to the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida on February 1, 1924, to the new seat created by 42 Stat. 837. Confirmed by the Senate on February 18, 1924, he received commission the same day. Jones served on the court until his death in Jacksonville in 1930.
