Wife Sheinelle Jones
Jones was born on 16 April 1978 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Although her father was a US District Court Judge, she wanted to become a journalist from a young age.
She studied at Northwestern University Chicago and started broadcasting journalism with WICS-TV. After that, she worked at local stations like KOKI-TV and WTXF-TV before joining NBC and MSNBC. Since then, Jones has been working as the co-anchor of NBC Morning Show and host of MSNBC Live.
Wife's Throat Surgery
Besides, in 2020, Jones underwent vocal cord surgery to remove a polyp. She had issues with a sore throat and hoarse sound for a long time before deciding to resort to surgery. As a result, she had to stay at complete rest, which meant not speaking for weeks.
After returning to anchoring, she told People Magazine it was a gift of silence. But at the same time, she found it hard to communicate with her children.
"At first it was very difficult, I'm not gonna lie, ordering a chai tea on a memo board or trying to talk to the kids. But after I just embraced it, I kind of found a gift in that," Jones confessed.
She added about her refined skills of listening, which made her aware of her day-to-day activities.
"And the second thing is the power of listening. We can apply that to the situation that we're in right now. You're home with your kids this morning or you're with your spouse probably more than you're use. I noticed that when you can't speak, your ears perk up and you're hearing things that you've never heard before," she further clarified.

Jones also said that after the surgery and after gaining consciousness, she began crying because she wanted to release the tension from her throat for a long time.
"Once I was alone in post-recovery … I started crying through my oxygen mask… the nurse rushed over and gave me a pen to scribble what was the matter. Honestly, nothing was wrong — I think it was just a release … this has been a long time coming and I've struggled off and on for so long…. I also felt like I was wrapped in prayers …. it felt like such a powerful moment," Jones recounted.
