Jones began to make a name for himself during his collegiate years (2003-2006) with the North Carolina State Wolfpack, before turning pro and signing with Nike in the summer of 2006. From there, his swimming career sprinted into action.

The young sprinter set a meet record in the 50-meter free (21.84) at the 2006 Pan Pacific Championships, before contributing to the then-world record 400 free relay with famed teammates Michael Phelps, Neil Walker, and Jason Lezak. The same four teammates would take home the gold in the same relay one year later at the 2007 World Championships.

Jones made his first Olympic team in 2008 and was a member of the famous 400 free relay with teammates Michael Phelps, Garrett Weber-Gale, and Jason Lezak. On his second Olympic team (2012), Jones collected silver medals in the 50 free and the 400 free relay, while also earning a gold medal for swimming on the preliminary team for the men’s 400 medley relay.
