Cory was born in Virginia and grew up a Navy brat, living in England, Florida, and California before his dad retired to Mesa, AZ in 1991. Cory graduated from high school in the Valley of the Sun in 1997 and after three failed attempts to navigate the college landscape, graduated from Northern Arizona University in May 2007. (He lightheartedly describe himself as “the guy who somehow shoved four years of college into ten years”.)
Graduation was merely the beginning of the big life changes for Cory in the summer of 2007, as he also secured a civilian position as an auditor with the U.S. Army at Fort Carson, CO, bought a house and moved to Colorado Springs, and topped that off by getting married to Aimee in July 2007. In 2009, the Joneses life changed again when they accepted a position (same job, different location) in Wiesbaden, Germany. In true form, exactly one week after accepting that position, they found out they were pregnant. Their daughter Kayla was born in 2010 in Germany, and after 4.5 years in Germany (and amazing adventures travelling all over Europe), the Joneses moved back to Colorado Springs in July 2014.
Cory currently works as the Chief of Internal Review and Audit Coordination for Evans Army Community Hospital at Fort Carson, CO. In addition to work, Cory loves to spend time with his family and friends, and enjoys travelling, disc golfing, all sports, and anything analytical. Cory is “that guy” who builds spreadsheets for fun!
Cory and his family attend Mountain Springs Church in Colorado Springs and are involved in life groups and associated Bible studies. For the past three years, he has gone to Swaziland with Mountain Springs and Beyond Survival, a Colorado Springs-based charity developed specifically to connect stateside resources with local Swazi mission opportunities. Specifically, Cory sees the avenue of soccer as one of the best conduits to reach young people in Swaziland.
