Jones was born in Kansas City MO and was raised in Gardena CA, finishing high school in Seattle WA. He went to the University of Washington program in architecture, where he was particularly influenced by Lionel Pries. He graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture in 1936.  After marrying a fellow architecture student, Ruth Schneider, Jones returned to Los Angeles, working first in the offices of the modernist architects Douglas Honnold and George Vernon Russell from 1936 to 1937, Burton A. Schutt from 1937 to 1939, 1939 to 1940 for Paul Williams then at Allied Engineers, Inc. of San Pedro from 1940 to 1942, where he met architect and future partner Frederick Emmons.

In 1942, Jones received his California architect certification, divorced, and became a lieutenant commander in the Navy assigned to the aircraft carrier USS Lexington. Discharged in 1945, Jones returned to Los Angeles and opened an architectural office in a house in Laurel Canyon he had built with his former wife. On his first day in business Jones secured his first client.

Jones partnered with Paul Williams on several projects in the Palm Springs area. These include the Palm Springs Tennis Club (1947), the Town & Country Restaurant (1948), and the restaurant Romanoff's On the Rocks (1950). Jones also participated in John Entenza's Case Study House program.

The December 1950 issue of Architectural Forum featured a "Builder's House of the Year" designed by Jones. The same issue also awarded the innovative Palo Alto building magnate Joseph Eichler "Subdivision of the Year." Eichler then invited Jones to tour the Palo Alto development he had just completed where he suggested they join forces. This relationship continued until Eichler's death in 1974. Through Eichler, Jones was provided both the venue and the freedom to implement park-like common areas, or greenbelts, in tract housing developments. In 1960, Jones was hired by William Pereira as a planning partner in the develfopment of the city of Irvine CA which has since become a model for greenways in urban planning.

The Eichler commission prompted Jones to reconnect with Frederick Emmons. Their partnership lasted from 1951 until Emmons' retirement in 1969. Their designs are reflected in some 5,000 of Eichler's homes. Jones and Emmons were awarded national AIA Firm of the Year in 1969.

Jones was also a professor and later Dean of Architecture at the University of Southern California 1951-1967. By the 1960's Jones was designing university and corporate buildings including the 1963 IBM Aerospace Headquarters in Westchester CA and University of California campus buildings.  Bio adapted from Wikipedia.

In 1950 the two houses were joined, and a stairway was built to connect the garage to the office and the living room was enlarged by including the existing balcony and porch.

1957 - The Donald Drummond Housing Development, Mission, KS. Jones met Donald Drummond during the "House that Home Built" promotion and worked with Drummond on a development in Kansas. One of the designs was the "Castilian". Jones did a development called "98th Place" for Drummond, including the Castilian. Included 4 models on 42 lots.

In 1955, during the 'House That Home Built' period, the Drummonds visited Eichler and toured several of his subdivisions. "We called on him because he was a volume builder, he had some good techniques, and he was a nice person," Drummond said. "We saw his plans and he told us who he had working for him. We called (Jones) and he went to work for me." The resulting plan was the 'Castilian,' the biggest and most lavish plan that Drummond would build. The 1956 Castilian was a quintessential Jones and Emmons H-plan, with terraces facing front and back. This addressed the criticisms that earlier Eichler H-designs had unceremonious entrances. The Castilian proudly turned its broad gable and its larger fenced entry terrace to the street, foreshadowing the Eichler atriums.

1976 - The Alexander Hixon House Alterations and Additions, 1100 Paso Alto Road, Pasadena CA. Commissioned 1971. Original house designed by architect Thornton Ladd in 1949/1954. The property consisted of two lots with houses and a third lot with a house that was to be demolished and rebuilt. Since Alto East was originally designed for Mr. Ladd's mother I'm assuming this must have been Mr. Ladd's personal property at the time. Minimal alterations were made for the Hixon's to occupy while the other construction was underway. In 1973 a garage was added. In 1976 Alto West was built on the property where the 3rd house that was in bad condition, was demolished. Appears the addresses are now 1092 and 1100, both sold to Harvey Mudd College in 2011 by Mrs. Hixon. Needs verification.

1979 - The Selden Ring House, aka the Pyramid, 10720 Chalon Road, Los Angeles CA. Commissioned 1975. You entered the house on a landing at the top of the stairs and descended to a bridge over a beautiful freeform pool.  Around the pool was an orchid garden.  Outside was a greenhouse that was used for raising and caring for the orchids.  According to Ring's son, Grant Ring, the house had an air circulation system that exchanged the air every three minutes for his collection of Renoirs, Degas, etc.  His neighbor was Jimmy Stewart.  Ring died around 1993, and the property passed to another son, who sold it around 1995. The house then had a dramatic disco-playboy style 70s vibe built around an indoor lagoon/pool. The house was then  unbearably humid and smelled like pool chemicals. There was a tennis court on the west side of the house. The pool was filled in at some point. Destroyed around 2008, according to former neighbor, Jonathan Gelber. Ring's house and the five adjacent houses have been transformed into $100-million mansions.
