Mark Francois Jones was born in 1982 in the Royal Infirmary in West Yorkshire in England and was the first son of Francois Napoleon Jones and Catherine Ann Jones. Mark joined a large boisterous family of an elder step bother, Simon, his half brother Adam and twin sisters Ruth and Rachael.

He was educated at a local state primary school in West Yorkshire from the age of five until he was seven when he was sent to boarding school to join his brother Adam and twin sisters Ruth and Rachael.
Mark was not very academic as a boy but enjoyed his sport and was captain of the hockey and cross country teams. He also played rugby, cricket and soccer.

He created a minor crisis when he and a number of friends decided as a prank to abscond overnight having been given detention by a teacher. His father was called and spent the night searching the woods for his lost son only to learn he had returned in the morning for breakfast none the worse for his adventure.

When he was 13, Mark passed his common entrance examination to college. Mark obtained 8 GCSE’s and 3 “A” Levels before going to University where he studied law. Mark was (eventually) awarded a 2:1 degree in Law with honors.

Following a brief period away from his studies Mark returned to his studies to complete the Legal Practice Course where he achieved a commendation before obtaining a job with a leading regional solicitors firm.

Mark is single and works and lives in West Yorkshire as a solicitor.

This is what Mark had to say about his Dad :-

"When my father asked me to write something about him I was not overly keen to oblige him. The reason for this is because I do not think I can say how he has influenced me in one sentence. What I can say is that I have learnt some important lessons from him, he has taught me that hard work and the right attitude can take you where ever you want to go and if you try hard enough - you can achieve anything ."
