Mr Jones, who was 59, died in his sleep at his home in Wolverhampton last night.
Bob Jones was elected the first West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner on 15 November 2012, after a long and distinguished career in public service.
Bob’s wife Sarah said: “Bob was a warm and wonderful man. Nothing was more important to Bob than his family which he loved with a passion. He was a very special man who will be terribly missed by his loved ones and I’m sure by the many people whose lives he touched in public service.”
An online book of condolence has been set up for those who wish to pay tribute to Bob. Enter your comments here
