Jade Jones (born 12 February 1979) is an English R&B singer turned chef. He is best known for being the lead singer of the band Damage. He was born to an English father and a Jamaican mother.

After leaving Damage, Jones joined CherryBlackStone, which appeared on Channel 4's Bo in the USA. In 2006, he participated in and went on to win the Channel 4 reality show The Games.

Jones left CherryBlackStone in 2008 following his son's birth and became a full-time trainee chef. He has reportedly been putting in stints at the Lord Stanley in London’s Camden Town sister pub the Lansdowne in Primrose Hill,[1] and he also works at Claridge's.

In 2014, Jones appeared with three of the original Damage members—Rahsaan J Bromfield, Andrez Harriott and Noel Simpson—in the second series of The Big Reunion on ITV2.[2]
