Playing primarily as a ruckman and forward, Jones became known as one of the game's great characters on and off the field. He was a member of four premiership teams for the Blues during one of the most successful eras in the club's history. After a short-lived stint as Carlton coach, Jones ventured into the hotel industry, owning or co-owning several pubs in Melbourne's inner suburbs.
