She became a parent-activist when Chancellor Rhee announced that her daughter's school would be closing along with 22 other D.C. Public Schools. Jones is an active board member of Empower DC, and she serves on the Ward 5 Council on Education. Jones has a B.A. in film production from Howard University.
