Jones found a job at a service station at the cross-streets of Laurel and Sunset in Los Angeles. The station is still there. He discovered acting when a friend invited him to an acting class, and was offered a job as an apprentice in summer stock. He was such a novice that he had only seen one play prior to his first stage appearance. Jones currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, director Anita Khanzadian-Jones. His interests include involvement with the Interact Theatre Company.
