Christine Jones is a former candidate for governor of Arizona and the former Executive
Vice President, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary for Go Daddy Operating Company
Christine made it a priority to establish Go Daddy as a leader in the fight to make
the Internet better and safer for users, particularly children. She has testified
numerous times before U.S. Congressional Committees in Washington, D.C. about various
issues related to the Internet. She also helped drive federal Internet-related legislation,
including laws to keep the Web safe from child predators and rogue online pharmacies.
For example, she helped push through bills such as the Ryan Haight Online Pharmacy
Consumer Protection Act, the Protect Our Children Act, and the Keeping the Internet
Devoid of Sexual Predators Act. These bills were signed into law by President Bush
in October 2008 and have been used by law enforcement and others to shut down illegal
online drug sellers and to prosecute online child predators.
Prior to Go Daddy, Christine worked for a Phoenix law firm focusing primarily on
commercial litigation. Before entering private practice, she worked for the Los
Angeles District Attorney's Office.
Christine has been a guest lecturer at a variety of law schools, graduate business
schools, colleges and universities, and high schools, including Stanford University,
The University of Virginia, Arizona State University, Santa Clara University, and
Whittier Law School. She is a published author and served as Editor-In-Chief of
the Whittier Law Review.
She resides in Phoenix with her husband, Gary, a retired Air Force officer who runs
the AFJROTC program at a local high school.
