Tracey C. Jones is the president of Tremendous Life Books. Her father, the late Charlie “Tremendous” Jones, started Executive Books for the purpose of changing the world one book at a time. With an exceptional leadership background, Tracey became the company’s new president in 2009 in order to carry on her father’s legacy.

Tracey was born and raised in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. As a high school graduate anxious to see the world, she attended New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, NM, earning an associates degree and an appointment to the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. In 1988, she earned her degree and commission and entered the Air Force as an Aircraft Maintenance Officer. Her first assignment to Shaw Air Force Base, South Carolina took her overseas, where she participated in the first Gulf War. Upon her return to the States, Tracey moved to Bitburg Air Base, Germany and then RAF Lakenheath, UK where she honed her operational skills and filled command roles of increasing responsibility.

After twelve years as a commissioned officer, Tracey left the Air Force in 2000 and moved to Austin, Texas working for a top manufacturing firm in the semiconductor industry. There, she continued to develop her skills, this time in the civilian workforce as a project manager. While there, she earned an MBA in Global Management. Tracey recently moved back to Pennsylvania from St. Louis where she most recently was the project manager in charge of a diverse base operations service contract for the government. She is excited to be back in her home state, close to her large family, and humbled to carry on Charlie’s legacy and love for books and for Christ. Tracey enjoys biking, golfing, traveling, spending time with her pets, and of course…reading!!!

    Hey Tracey,

    Just wanted to let you know that I think the name change was a “Tremendous” idea!! I think your Dad would have approved!! I think it embodies what he wanted to do in the lives of each person he touched!!
    I was blessed by your Father and still am as I listen to him quite often in our “think sessions”!!
    Thanks for carrying on in the spirit of his spirit and of His Spirit!!

    Marvelously In Christ,

    Dan Markley

    I Heard Charlie Tremendous Jones in audio book; in it he talks about 22 books he had his son read before he went to college. Your father had your brother read these books because his son wanted to buy a Cadilliac and in the end he drove around in Dad’s car having Dad pay for gas after reading these books. Can you find out the Titles and Authors of these twenty two books and post it here.

    Tracey, I greatly enjoyed your commencement speech. I would like to add the transcript to the GraduationWisdom Collection Please let me know if that would be ok with you. I think the comparison between Thermostat vs Thermometer was great. I will add a link to your site so that readers would be able to learn more about your amazing work. I understand if you do not want to do this. best regards, Cristina

    Hi there Tracey! I saw that you started following Rest in the Shadow of the Almighty. As you could probably tell, not much has been happening there. I do have a very active WordPress blog at called Learning to be Full of Grace and Truth. Charlie is a frequent subject in many posts starting with the welcome page! I hope you follow me there.

    Hope you are well!
