If you suspend an account, does it stop the cron jobs it has in the cpanel?

    Yes cPanel does remove the crons for the suspended account/s while restoring them on un-suspending.

    More specifically, it moves the crontab file to /var/spool/cron.suspended/ and then moves it back when the account is unsuspended.
