Born in Atlanta in 1946, Jones went to high school at St. Albans School in Washington, D.C. and later received an A.B. in 1968 from Harvard College, where he was president of the Harvard Crimson and a member of the Spee Club. He was a few years younger at both St. Albans and Harvard as classmate Donald E. Graham, his future employer. He attended Exeter College, Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar and received a D.Phil. in modern history. He received his J.D. in 1974 from Harvard Law School, where he was an editor of the Harvard Law Review.

Prior to joining The Post, Jones was an attorney with Hill and Barlow in Boston from 1975 to 1980, and was law clerk for the Honorable Levin H. Campbell, a judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, from 1974 to 1975.
