Jerry Jones

The 2017 NFL season is Jones' 29th as Cowboys owner - the same number of seasons as the combined tenures of his predecessors


Following the replacement of the then-injured Romo as starter with unheralded rookie backup Dak Prescott, the Cowboys were successful in 2016, winning a franchise-record eleven consecutive games after losing their season opener


As of September 2015, Jones' net worth is reported by Forbes to be $5 billion, the majority of which can be accounted for as being his ownership stake in the Cowboys who are currently valued by the same publication to be the world's most valuable sports team at $4 billion


In 2014, the Cowboys won the NFC East for the first time in five years after key drafts and free agent signings


Jones also appears in a 2013 Pepsi commercial, walking into an elevator filled with three men wearing New York Giants apparel, who look at him with discontent


He appeared as himself in the seventh season of the HBO series Entourage in 2010, in an episode of the TNT incarnation of Dallas titled "Truth and Consequences", which aired on July 4, 2012, in a series of commercials for the 2012 season of ESPN's Monday Night Football, and in the season 4 premiere of The League


The Cowboys went 8–8 in 2011–13, losing the NFC East title in Week 17 each season to a different divisional opponent


In 2009, Jones was fined $100,000 for violating a gag order on labor issues, commenting that revenue sharing was "on its way out"


Jones was fined $25,000 by the NFL for publicly criticizing referee Ed Hochuli after Hochuli made a controversial call in a game between the San Diego Chargers and the Denver Broncos on September 14, 2008


In an online poll from October 8, 2003, Jones was named the least favorite sports personality by Sports Illustrated, in three states (Virginia, Delaware and Texas)


He had a brief cameo appearance as himself in the 1998 made-for-television reunion movie Dallas: War of the Ewings


Jones also appeared as himself in a 1996 episode of the TV show Coach and in a 2007 television commercial for Diet Pepsi MAX, which also featured then Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips and quarterback Tony Romo


During Switzer's tenure, the Cowboys also won the Super Bowl in the 1995 season


The NFL's implementation of a hard salary cap in 1994, combined with the implementation of a hard salary floor and consistently increasing television revenues have eliminated the ability of any NFL team to significantly outspend its rivals


The Cowboys won the Super Bowl in the 1992 and 1993 seasons


After a slow start under Jones and Johnson (the first season under Jones, a 1–15 finish, remains second only to the team's inaugural season in terms of futility), Jones quickly built a team that is often reckoned to be the best NFL franchise of the 1990s


Much of the league's financial success since 1989 has been credited to Jones himself


(born September 27, 1969) is the Cowboys' chief sales and marketing officer/vice president


After several other unsuccessful business ventures (including an attempt, again using Teamsters money, to purchase the American Football League's San Diego Chargers in 1967), he began an oil and gas exploration business in Arkansas, Jones Oil and Land Lease, which became successful


Charlotte (born July 26, 1966) serves as the Cowboys' executive vice president and chief brand officer


According to an interview with Jones on HBO, after graduating from college in 1965, he borrowed a million dollars from Jimmy Hoffa's Teamsters union to open up a string of Shakey's Pizza Parlor restaurants in Missouri


Stephen (born June 21, 1964) serves as the Cowboys' chief operating officer/executive vice president/director of player personnel


His family moved to North Little Rock, Arkansas in 1945, and Jones was a running back at North Little Rock High School


Jerral Wayne Jones (born October 13, 1942) is an American businessman, best known for being owner of the National Football League (NFL)'s Dallas Cowboys since 1989
