Jones was a two-time National Christian College All-American and the 1995 Player of the Year. After graduating from Greenville with a B.A. in Physical Education in 1996 Jones went on to play two year's of semi-pro softball. She is currently a teacher and coach in Springfield, Illinois.
Jones was one of the contestants in this year's season of The Biggest Loser on NBC.
