Jerral Wayne Jones is an American businessman and has been the owner of the NFL’s famed Dallas Cowboys football team since 1989. We couldn’t help but wonder what a man of his worth lived like, and, well, the Jerry Jones house photos below are all we needed to see. But first, here’s some background on him.
Prior to owning his own team, however, a young Jones was a running back at North Little Rock High School and went on to play college football while attending the University of Arkansas, even acting as the co-captain for their 1964 National Championship team. This was also where he met Jimmy Johnson, a fellow teammate at the time who Jones would later hire as his head coach for the Cowboy after purchasing the team.Array
Thanks to some excellent investments as well as good luck in the oil industry, Jones has amassed quite the fortune. Today, we’re taking you on an inside look at this billionaire’s homes and lavished rides. So, sit back, relax, and prepare to be impressed!
Where Does Jerry Jones Live?
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones isn’t just skilled at spotting a good investment, he’s also got quite the eye for real estate!
Jerry Jones House Dallas, TX
Making it to #8 on D Magazine’s list of the 100 Most Expensive Homes in Dallas 2017, Jones’ 14,044 square foot Mediterranean-style villa, has an estimated market value of a whopping 28.1 million! That’s not too shabby considering he paid “only” $6 million for it in 1992.
The massive Dallas mansion sits on 4.69 acres of land in an uber-wealthy Highland Park, Dallas, TX neighborhood, where only people with wallets like Jerry Jones will ever have the pleasure of living. Sorry peeps, unless you have millions in the bank, you’re not gonna bag one of the mega-mansions here…but hey, we can all dream, right?!
The 2-story home, built in 1931, boasts 6-bedrooms, 7-bathrooms, 6 fireplaces, and even marble flooring. Some amenities and other cool features include a swimming pool and spa, a tennis court, and an elevator. The property is also surrounded (and I mean completely surrounded) by lush trees that provide complete privacy. If a small forest doesn’t keep prying eyes from…prying, there’s always the tall wall that borders the lot as a backup. Seriously, this is why you never see detailed pictures of the house online!Array

Jerry Jones House Florida
Located in Santa Rosa Beach, Jone’s 11,482 square foot beach getaway has an estimated value of $5.6 million. The mansion was built in 2005 and boasts 6-bedrooms, 11-bathrooms, and an elevator. Jones was busy buying in the early 90’s – he dropped $643,000 on this place in July 1993, only 6 months after buying his Dallas home shown above.
The windows that line the property provide lots of natural lighting as well as views of the sparkling blue waters of the beach nearby and the snow-white sands that border it. If the short walk to the beach is too long and too short to helicopter over, but you still want to go for a dip, the home features a pool that is perfect for the occasion!Array

Jerry Jones House Boat / Yacht
As if lavished houses and owning your own football team wasn’t a grand enough display of wealth, Mr. Jones also recently nabbed a super-yacht to rival all super-yachts. Named Bravo Eugenia after his wife Genie, the yacht is literally as long as a football field. He paid more for this yacht that he did for an entire football team – a $100 million more to be exact.Array
In January 2019, the billionaire businessman bought the 357-foot superyacht – 57 feet longer than a football field – that blew the world away. How much is Jerry Jones yacht? He paid a brain-shattering $250 million for the vessel, which has everything from 2 helicopter landing pads to a garage for smaller boats.
According to Oceana, the manufacturer, Bravo Eugenia is the first of it’s kind with the LIFE design:
Oceanco’s 109m/357ft ‘Project Bravo’ was launched on 17 November 2018. Bravo is a prime example of Oceanco’s new wave of forward-thinking yachts. With her naval architecture by Lateral Naval Architects, exterior design and layout by Nuvolari Lenard and interior by Reymond Langton Design, Bravo is unlike any preceding Oceanco. She is the first Oceanco to utilize its innovative LIFE (Lengthened, Innovative, Fuel-efficient, Eco-friendly) design. LIFE revolves around intelligent naval architecture that leverages a number of fundamental principles, which create a harmonious balance between weight, power, technical areas and luxury interior on board.
Jerry Jones Net Worth
Jones is believed to be the 4th richest owner in the National Football League, Jerry Jones has built a staggering net worth of $6.8 billion (yes, billion!).
Though his family was always wealthy, since his father, J.W. “Pat” Jones, was a business-savvy man himself and acted as chairman and president of Modern Security Life Insurance Co, Jerry Jones didn’t always have the best of luck in his business ventures. Some unsuccessful ventures of his included a failed string of Shakey’s Pizza Parlors in Missouri and attempting to buy the American Football League’s San Diego Chargers in 1967.
His real success came after Jones borrowed a million dollars from his father to start his own oil and gas company, a company he would later sell for $170 million in the 1980s. In 1989, he would buy the Dallas Cowboys for $150 million, an incredibly good investment on his part, since the team is now worth a whopping $5 billion and has won 5 of their 8 appearances at the Super Bowl.
Besides making mega-money from his beloved football team, Jones also continues to earn serious dough from the oil industry, even signing a deal in 2018 to become a controlling shareholder in Comstock Resources, a Texas oil and gas company.
Jerry Jones Helicopter
I mean, Jerry Jones yacht has 2 helipads, so of course, he has a helicopter, but not just any helicopter, Jones has an Airbus H145! This baby has everything you could ever ask for in a luxury helicopter, from leather seats, carpeted floors, a cabin that can hold up to 8 passengers in the back, and even a black built-in console that houses some of his preferred drinks of choice, including Johnnie Walker whiskey, Grey Goose vodka, and Patron tequila.
Additionally, the 4-ton chopper is also considered the quietest helicopter currently available on the market. This seems to be Jone’s primary ride since he can be seen using it almost daily as his mode of travel. He even had the Cowboy’s blue star added to the tail of his sky limo.
Fun fact: Jerry’s sons, Stephen Jones and Jerry Jones, Jr., as well as his daughter, Charlotte Jones-Anderson, are also part of the family business. Stephen is the Executive Vice President, CEO, and even Director of Player Personnel for the Dallas Cowboys. Jones, Jr. acts as the Chief Sales and Marketing Officer and Executive VP of his father’s team. Finally, Charlotte is the Cowboy’s Executive Vice President and Chief Brand Officer. The Jones’ are seriously one powerful family!Array
