Derik Jones is an architectural designer. Well, that only describes about 10% of who Derik really is. Derik has a strong passion for sustainability and innovation with a spirit of adventure, traveling the world with his beautiful wife. He thrives on creativity, seeing the world through the lens of photography, viewing beauty in the ordinary—the details often overlooked by those who move a bit too quick through life, not paying attention to those truly special minute aspects of life. Friends and coworkers often describe Derik as an “energizer bunny” who brings his special blend of high-energy, coffee-driven problem solving to each new challenge along the way. Derik believes that through his designs, others can be inspired not to just see the world, but to experience it—motivating others to step outside of their own conceptual frameworks, to live, to explore, and to find their own adventure.
Derik graduated from Fairmont State University after serving in numerous positions for the Epsilon Zeta Chapter during this time there. Derik is a strong advocate of equality and an active participant in our democracy. In his spare time, Derik enjoys spending time with friends (just don’t bring out your cell phone during dinner), and brewing his own beer. Derik currently serves as a Chapter Consultant At-Large for Phi Sigma Phi National Fraternity primarily working within the West Virginia/Pennsylvania region.

  • "Joining Phi Sigma Phi was the best decision I could have made going into college, it gave me a core group of friends that I'll have for life and a ton of resources that helped me succeed."
