“Mr. Jess Roques first heard of JBS from Charlie Smith on a televised “Meet the Press” interview in Orlando, Fl in the early 1970s. He intended to contact someone then, but was transferred by Penn Life to Jackson, MS. Years later, both he and his wife Mary joined the John Birch Society and have remained active.
Before retiring, Mr. Roques was Regional Director for Pennsylvania Life Insurance Company, with offices in Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Georgia. He served as Chairman of the Board of Stewards at Riverside Independent Methodist Church, and as the Treasurer for the International Association of Independent Methodists.
He was also an active member of the Jackson-Madison Camp of the Gideons International.”
