Raymond McAdoo Jones (born October 18, 1889 in Murfreesboro, Tennessee; died October 17, 1955) was an insurance executive.

Jones, the son of James Felix and Eva McAdoo Jones of Tennessee, attended the Mooney School before enrolling at Princeton University in 1909. He took a leave from school to help settle a family matter in South America before completing his degree in 1914 and settling in Birmingham. He married Marguerite Nabers on June 17, 1917 and constructed a large house on Pine Ridge Road in Mountain Brook where they raised two daughters, Marguerite ("Wita") and Alice ("Acky").

Jones was known as an outdoorsman, and particularly handy with a shotgun. He was said to have many times bagged his fifteen-bird limit using only fifteen shells.

Jones retired from business in 1953 and died three years later after a long illness.
