Jones was born in the central Piedmont region of North Carolina. He was raised as an only child in the town of McLeansville by parents Kimberly and Reid Jones. At Northeast Guilford High School, Jones was involved in sports as a member of the football, track, and wrestling teams. In early 2009, Jones drove cross country from his East Coast home to move to Los Angeles and began acting soon after.

In October 2011, it was announced that Jones would be joining CBS's CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, playing the role of Charlie Russell, the son of D.B. Russell (played by Ted Danson). E!
