Cody's Social Media:


Cody Jones was born in a religious family in Plano, Texas, on October 9, 1987. Every Sunday, his family attended church. Jones played basketball in high school and was a member of the boys’ basketball team that won the Class 5A State Championship in 2005-06. He entered a phase he described as “straying away from the Lord” by the end of high school. His focus shifted to basketball and girls, and he enrolled at Texas A&M University to pursue a degree in finance and real estate. Jones rediscovered religion three months later while studying at Texas A&M University, where he met his future partners, twins Coby and Cory Cotton, Garrett Hilbert, and Tyler Toney. He first met the Cotton twins at the university’s recreation center, where they played basketball. The twins invited Jones to stay with them in their house, which they shared with Hilbert and Toney.

Jones worked in real estate for a short time after graduation. On March 16, 2009, the five friends launched the channel Dude Perfect. Their first video, titled “Backyard Edition,” featured the friends in their backyard performing increasingly complex basketball shots in exchange for a sandwich bet. Within one week of its release on April 8, 2009, the video had received over 200,000 views. Jones and the others began uploading content on a regular basis after realizing they had something special there. Professional endorsement offers and requests began to pour in quickly. “The Dude Perfect Show” premiered in early 2016. Jones and his friends embarked on their first live tour in 2019. The group later announced their second live tour in 2020, which was later postponed to 2021.

Jones is the group’s tallest member, which earned him the nickname ‘tall guy’ from fans. Jones is also a devoted family man. He married Allison Jones on August 6, 2010, and they have three children — two daughters and a son.
