Jones was awarded the MBE in 2009 for his services to sport and in particular for helping young people to become involved in football. He was for many years the CEO of Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach, which was founded by his father-in-law Albert Botton. A keen footballer, Jones was at one time a director of Norwich City Football Club and was also president of Gorleston Football Club.
