Abstract. We will concentrate on special types of numbers

\begin{displaymath}J_{n}(k)=\sum_{i=0}^{n-2}\binom{n}{i}k^{n-2-i},\end{displaymath}

where $k$ is any nonnegative integer and $n$ is any positive integer greater than 1. These numbers are a generalization of generalized repunits $R_n(b)$. In this paper some results about divisibility of $J_{n}(k)$ are stated. Further the generating function and a $m$-fold convolution formula for the numbers $J_{n}(k)$ is found.
