Retired CSU Professor Dies
By Elham Sliman
Cleveland State University art professor Marvin Jones died of heart complications at the age of 65 on Wednesday, Feb. 23.
Jones, who had been with CSU for 27 years before retiring in 2004, was widely known in the art department as someone who loved what he did.
Associate Professor of Art George Mauersberger, says Jones “was an extremely talented and prolific artist and a very good teacher.” “Most of his students loved his classes because he had a great sense of humor,” he continued.
Jones had a very diverse body of works, which varied from printmaking, painting, drawing and small sculptures. His works were featured in museums both internationally and nationally.
A memorial was held on Tuesday, March 1 at the Ripepi Funeral Home. Many of Jones’ former faculty members and students attended and spoke at the service. Donations may be made to the Jesuit Retreat House, 5629 State Road, Parma, Ohio.
Jones leaves behind him his two sons, Benjamin of Seattle and Michael of Solon, his mother, Lila of Sullivan, Ill., and two sisters.
