The Inglewood, California native and his family moved to Arkansas when he was a boy and ended up going to high school there were he was a running back on their football team. He attended and graduated from the University of Arkansas and continued playing football, however that came to a halt after he left the university. Jones attempted to start a few different business that were ultimately unsuccessful, but eventually created his oil and gas exploration business that proved to be very prosperous. In 1989, Jones purchased the Dallas Cowboys for $140 million dollars and eventually fired the general manager so that he could take over that role. He has won three Super Bowls with the Cowboys as the owner,president, and GM of the team and was also named the 2014 NFL Executive of the Year.
