We present a study of events with W bosons and hadronic jets produced in pp collisions at a center of mass energy of 1.8 TeV. The data consist of 51400 W→ev decay candidates from 108 pb-1 of integrated luminosity collected using the CDF detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider. Cross sections and jet production properties have been measured for W+ ≥ 1 to ≥4 jet events. The data compare well to predictions of leading-order QCD matrix element calculations with added gluon radiation and simulated parton fragmentation.
