Jones was a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent at the time surrounding the the collapse of the agency and the reemergence of HYDRA. He was one of the agents who remained loyal to S.H.I.E.L.D. whom Agent Victoria Hand trusted. He was present at the Hub when Agent Hand was defending it from the HYDRA threat within, and was the agent in charge of storming the Bus and neutralizing its passengers after it landed at the Hub. After Agents Triplett and Simmons earned Agent Hand's trust, Jones reported that the Bus was empty of passengers, alerting Hand that Coulson and his team had infiltrated the base.
