ACA Statement On Passing Of Glenn Jones

PITTSBURGH, July 7, 2015 - American Cable Association President and CEO Matthew M. Polka issued the following statement regarding the passing of cable TV pioneer and entrepreneur Glenn Jones:

"ACA is very sorry to learn of the passing of Glenn Jones, a recognized cable pioneer whose entrepreneurial spirit inspired so many to pursue careers in the cable TV industry. Cable continues to innovate and invest in new technology because people like Mr. Jones showed long ago that cable operators had an obligation to exceed their customers' high expectations and their own.  Mr. Jones will be missed by all who knew him but his legacy will live on. ACA would like Mr. Jones' family members to know that they are in our thoughts and prayers on this very sad occasion."
