Dr. Jones is a native of Oklahoma who grew up in Bristow (near Tulsa). After graduating from Bristow as valedictorian, he began to pursue medicine at the University of Oklahoma where he entered premed and later received his Bachelors of Science. From there, he continued his training at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine and received the prestigious distinction of induction into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.
During his first year of medical school in 1997, Dr. Jones began working with the plastic surgery department both clinically and in the research field. This helped foster his interest, and in 2001 he became the first individual to be accepted to the University of Oklahoma Plastic Surgery Combined Program straight from medical school.
