Jones is perhaps best known for her portrayal of Janice Frame on the NBC soap opera Another World from 1978–1980 and again in 1989, but had also appeared as Amy Gifford on the series in 1977. She eventually brought the Amy character to the indirect spin-off soap Lovers and Friends.[1]


Jones attended Elmira College in Elmira, NY from which she was graduated in 1969. During her college years she also was a model and she appeared in a national fashion magazine spread with then-starlet Candice Bergen. Her maternal grandfather was baseball Hall of Famer, Branch Rickey, who was the driving force behind having Jackie Robinson break the color barrier in Major League Baseball in 1947.
