Jory is a husband to Shelley Lundberg Francis. He is the father of four young children: Gardner, Lily, Spencer, and Charlie. Jory and his family live in West Layton. Jory attended high school at Viewmont High school in Bountiful, Utah, and graduated college at Westminster College in Salt Lake City.
Jory was honored to be elected to a seat on the Layton City Council in November of 2011, and very much enjoys serving the citizens of Layton in this capacity.
Jory founded Yusef Laboratories in 2003 with business partners Fielding Smith, Stephen Lundberg and Lloyd Parkinson. Jory is the President of the company. The company started in West Kaysville’s Barnes Business park and now is located in Clearfield’s West Freeport Center. The company was started with the savings of the principles and to this day has never taken on any investors or any long-term bank notes. By plowing earnings back into the company they have grown to over 60 employees and currently sell the personal care items manufactured by the company in every state in the United States of America. The focus of the company is to keep well deserved manufacturing jobs here in Davis County, and not in China.
Jory has served on the Davis Economic Advisory Council serving on the Business Retention subcommittee. He has also rendered service on behalf of the Davis Chamber of Commerce, serving on its Legislative Affairs Committee. This committee meets with the Davis County legislative delegation weekly during the Legislative session. This has given Jory a unique perspective of how legislation affects local businesses.
Jory serves on the PARC board foundation. PARC is a Davis County non-profit that trains and places individuals with disabilities into jobs in the private sector.
Additionally, Jory serves on the Family Connection Foundation board, serving in the capacity of Treasurer. Family Connection Center seeks to rid our community of poverty by addressing abuse, hunger and family stability issues, among other services.
Jory also volunteers for YouthLiNC; a non-profit that administers micro loans to Latin America. He spent four weeks last summer in Mexico and Guatemala serving the people by not only administering small business loans, but teaching the people good business practices. Jory is fluent in Spanish.
