A native of Miami, Florida, Jones was a two-year starter at Curley High School, graduating in 1969.
During his collegiate career with the Quakers, Jones was a four-year letter winner (1973-76) at wide receiver. He caught 39 career passes for 620 yards, averaging 15.8 yards per reception. His most productive season was 1975, when he hauled in 21 receptions for 310 yards.
Jones graduated from Wilmington in 1977 with a business administration degree and attended University of Cincinnati on a graduate honor scholarship. In 1979, he received a master’s in marketing from UC.
Jones and his wife Terri reside in Wilmington.
