It’s great to hear that Jones is recovering well. She’s a well-known personality from her NFL Network work and her work on New York’s WFAN, and she also previously worked for YES and the (Newark, NJ-based) Star-Ledger. And numerous colleagues and other members of the media have expressed their support for her.
Thanks @InovaHealth’s Fairfax Hospital and Heart & Vascular Institute for saving the life of our friend @KimJonesSports, as she’s says “against big odds.” She’s out of the hospital today. It’s a good day https://t.co/vbCFl129GZ

My friend @KimJonesSports was so kind to me a few years ago when I had a very MINOR medical issue.
I'm sending her the same thoughts right back. Hope she is as ok as this article suggests.https://t.co/EQEEden9VN
