Marion Jones Net Worth: Marion Jones is an American gold medalist and former professional athlete that has a net worth of $500 thousand dollars. Produced in La, California, in 1975, Marion Jones graduated in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1997. She finally married among her school track trainers, who stepped down to continue the relationship. Before the start of the Games, Jones said she’d win all five gold medals in her track and field events. Her husband, C.J. Hunter, pulled out of his own Olympic occasions and it was soon declared that he failed four drug tests before the Olympics. The couple would divorce in 2002. Jones went to win five gold medals in the Sydney Games, but admitted in 2007 that she took performance-enhancing drugs throughout the Olympics and she lied regarding the use into a grand jury within the BALCO investigation. She was made to forfeit her gold medals. The exact same year, Jones was linked to some check fraud scheme and pled guilty to lying to the Department of Homeland Security. She was sentenced to half a year in jail in 2008; the sentence was linked to both using steroids as well as the check fraud scheme. She stayed in the Federal Medical Center in Texas from March 7th until September 5th. Jones has been married to her present husband, Obadele Thompson, since 2007. They got two kids together.
