Spider identification

Perry, FL

I know the pics are blurry but need ID help. Finding these all over, in house and outside. New to the south and hate spiders! Spider appears to be grey with a large black spot on its back. Size of a penny.
Thanks in advance!

Jumping spider - not dangerous - see http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/creatures/misc/regal_spider02.htm for an example.

Agreed. Jumping spider. Had these all over when I lived in IL- they were the nice spiders (brown recluse not so much). I tended to let these be since they NEVER bit me and often ran away when I came near. Plus, I think they helped keep some of the nastier bugs away so I thought it was a good deal :)
