Jones made her professional acting debut in The Last Don, a 1997 mini-series based on the novel by Mario Puzo.
"I remember being at my house and saying to her, 'So I just want to have this really honest conversation.Her dad's teaching her how to orchestrate and arrange too." Jones's parents divorced when she was 14 years old; her sister subsequently remained with their father while she moved to Brentwood with their mother.In 1994, Jones garnered attention with an open letter responding to scathing remarks made by Tupac Shakur about her parents' interracial marriage.After high school, Jones left California to attend Harvard University.At Harvard, Jones was a resident of Eliot House and belonged to the Hasty Pudding Theatricals, Harvard Radcliffe Dramatic Club, Harvard-Radcliffe Opportunes, Black Students Association and the "semi-secret" Signet Society.
