Sara Jones gave birth this morning at 10:40 to an 8-pound, 7-ounce baby boy. The couple named him Jarret Laury Jones, in honor of two of Charleston Mayor Danny Jones' longtime friends.
Jarrett comes from George Jarrett, the mayor's close friend for more than 40 years. The two went to high school together and have been close friends since that time. Jarrett works for the City Building Commission and is a retired Charleston Police Officer.
Otis Laury and the Mayor have known each other since 1955 and are former business associates. Laury was Chef at the Governor's Mansion for 12 years.
The couple married last year. Mayor Jones also has a teenage son.
