Special thanks to Aimee F. Morehead for her care and dedication.

Jo worked with C & P Telephone before launching a successful career in real estate. A pioneering young woman, she started Mountain View Reality serving Radford and surrounding areas. With real estate as the platform, she was able to do what she loved the most…. help people. Remembering her humble beginnings growing up on a farm in Bland County, Virginia, she always gave back by sponsoring many scholarships at Radford University and New River Community College. Although Jo was recognized with many awards for her work in real estate and her charitable contributions, her family was always her greatest achievement.
