Jones grew up in Slidell, Louisiana, and became fascinated with the weather in 1992, as a middle schooler, watching the coverage of Hurricane Andrew. After graduating high school, Jones entered the meteorology program at Louisiana Monroe. He joined the National Weather Service Lake Charles team 13 years ago in 2009.

Donald told the American Press:

At the time, all I could think as a kid was, ‘Wow. This is so cool.’ Now as I’ve grown up and experienced hurricanes personally, I respect the storms a little bit more and I feel a little differently when I see a massive storm develop. There will always be a part of me that gets excited about storms, though.
