Team Bio

Jennifer Jones has captured just about every major curling title in her career. Jones was a star from the start on the junior circuit winning three Manitoba junior titles and one Canadian junior championship.

Jones won her first Tournament of Hearts title in 2005 in dramatic fashion. Facing Ontario (which coincidentally featured Dawn McEwen playing lead), Jones made one of the most incredible shots in curling history with her last stone in the final end hitting off an opposing rock outside of the house and rolling in to take out Ontario’s shot stone on the button and score four points to lift Manitoba to an 8-6 victory and the championship.

McEwen switched provinces joining the team in 2007 as Team Jones went on a dynasty run at the Tournament of Hearts winning three consecutive national titles from 2008-10. Team Jones also captured a world championship in 2008 defeating China in the final.

Following the Tournament of Hearts three-peat, Jones added two-time Canadian junior champion Kaitlyn Lawes at third in 2010 with her target on winning gold at the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Jones defeated Sherry Middaugh in the 2013 Canadian Olympic Curling Trials final to represent Canada at the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. Team Jones topped Sweden to capture the gold medal and made history by becoming the first women’s crew to finish the Olympic curling tournament undefeated with an overall 11-0 record. Jones capped the 2013-14 dream season by winning her fifth Players’ Championship.

Jones returned to the Scotties in 2015 and won the national title for a fifth time, her first with Lawes. Representing Canada at the worlds, the team settled silver after falling to Team Switzerland, skipped by Alina Paetz, in the final.

Jones earned her sixth Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling championship by capturing the inaugural Humpty’s Champions Cup in 2016 and took title No. 7 after winning the Players’ Championship for the sixth time in 2017.

Jones added Grand Slams No. 8 and No. 9 winning the Masters and Boost National back-to-back in late 2017 and was a Meridian Canadian Open championship away from completing a “Tiger Slam” (hold all four majors at once regardless of season) but fell in the semifinals to Team Englot.

Lawes captured another Olympic gold for Canada earning the medal in mixed doubles at the Pyeongchang Winter Games. That forced Lawes to miss the Scotties Tournament of Hearts (Shannon Birchard filled in) and Jones claimed the national women’s championship for the sixth time.

Longtime second Jill Officer stepped back into an alternate role following the cycle with Jocelyn Peterman (formerly with Team Carey) joining.

Peterman skipped Alberta to a Canadian junior title in 2012. She linked up with Team Nedohin as their alternate in 2014-15 and became the full-time second the following season when Nedohin walked away from competitive curling and Chelsea Carey took over the team. Peterman won the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in 2016 and the Meridian Canadian Open in 2018 with Team Carey.
