Mr. Mark Jones » Home


My name is Mark E. Jones, this will be my third year at Thornton, I’ve been with TISD for 6 years and this year I will be the P.E. Aide alongside of Coach Phelps . I am originally from Ridgely, Tennessee, and been in Temple for 9 years now. I received a Bachelor’s of Science in Athletic Training and in P.E. from Oklahoma Panhandle State University. After graduation I attended camp in New York for the New York Giants, and upon being released I signed a contract to play Arena football and I did so for six years, until my career was ended by a knee injury. I have one son and his name is Syhr Bryson Jones and he’s 6. I also have a small fitness training business called F.A.B.S Sports and Training, in which I contract with Wilson Park Recreation and the City of Temple to host my sessions. I enjoy anything that’s sports related and living healthy and fit.

I can be reached at 254-215-5700.
