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.
