Tom Jones was the first construction manager at the Clinton Library building site. Jones often showed the ex-president around the site. "He's the most hands-on guy ever," noted Jones after one such visit, and Clinton was "really into every aspect of the construction."
Jones suffered a fatal heart attack on March 3, 2004. His successor was Jonathan Semans. Both men worked for the general contractor Hensel Phelps. Jones and Semans controlled the work of over fifty local subcontractors on the Library, which included 1,500 workers.
