From what I was taught in college, you don't add the extra 'z' sound to a possessive name already ending with a 'z' sound.
Correct sentences the way I was taught:
I am going over to the Jones' house tonight. (pronounced exactly like the last name.)
Same with a singular: I saw Jesus' tomb. (no extra 'z' sound at the end... pronounced just like Jesus.)
