A life so young was taken away from us while he helped his grandparents on the dairy. Cassidy, 16, was a caring young man with a good heart and a bright future.

Cassidy was born July 19, 1991 in Waxahachie to Greg and Anneke (Tamminga) Jones. He was going into his junior year at Waxahachie High School, where he excelled in French and debate.

Cassidy was attending Ferris Avenue Baptist Church. He worked part time at Pet-O-Rama.

He is survived by his parents, Greg and Anneke Jones; two brothers, Kallen D. and Corbin Jones; maternal grandparents, Kars and Grace Tamminga all of Waxahachie; numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews, and family in Holland.

His paternal grandparents, Lee F. and Lucille Jones, preceded him in death.

The family received friends and relatives from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2 at the Wayne Boze Funeral Home.

The celebration of life was held 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 3, 2007, at the Park Meadows Baptist Church with Pastor David Brown officiating. Interment will follow at the Bethel Cemetery.
