Uber president who resigned this week is a 1990 UD grad

Jeff Jones, who resigned this week as president of ride-hailing company Uber, is a University of Dayton graduate.

Jones attended UD from 1986 through 1990, according to his LinkedIn profile. While there he earned a bachelor’s degree in communication, according to his profile.

Jones served as Uber’s president for just six months. The company released a brief statement on Sunday regarding Jones’ time as its leader.

“We want to thank Jeff for his six months at the company and wish him all the best,” it read.

Jones told the blog Recode that he chose to resign because his values didn’t align with Uber’s.

“The beliefs and approach to leadership that have guided my career are inconsistent with what I saw and experienced at Uber, and I can no longer continue as president of the ride sharing business,” he said in a statement.

Jones had left his job as Target’s chief marketing officer, to join Uber in September, the Associated Press reported. Jones is the latest of several executives to leave the ride sharing company.
