Where are they now?

After having similar high school careers, twins Jackson and Jess Jones have ended up on opposite sides of the country.

While at Park City High School both were lettermen and played lots of sports. They were co-captains of the wrestling team, played tennis, rugby and participated in track. Jess was a pole vaulter, Jackson a distance runner and co-captain.

Both graduated a year early in 1997, went to the University of Utah for undergraduate work and then moved to the East Coast.

"Jackson went to George Washington Medical School while Jess was at Columbia in New York City," said their father John.

Then Jackson headed west, to Portland, Ore. Where he is an orthopedic surgery resident at Oregon Health and Science University. Jess is wrapping up his last year at Columbia where he is studying for a combined medical and business degree.

"Jackson is especially active, he’s a wind surfer, kite surfer, surfer, mountain biker, climber&so he loves Oregon," the father said.

He added that the support of their teachers at Park City High School played an instrumental part in helping them.

"There were some extremely good teachers at Park City High School," he said.
