Biography: "Renée Jones was born in Opa Locka, Florida, where she was the youngest of six children. Her parents separated when she was an infant and her mother took the children to live with their grandmother in Sparta, Georgia. Growing up on her grandmothers farm with 13 kids (lots of cousins) and no indoor plumbing, Renée quickly learned to handle chores such as chopping wood and drawing water from the well.

After high school, a friend suggested that Renée give modeling a try. He introduced her to the Black Beauty Modeling Agency and she decided to pursue the new career opportunity. She took a night job as a grocery store cashier to pay the bills and to give her free time during the day to make the one-hour commute into Manhattan to pound the pavements on go-sees in search of modeling assignments. Her diligence paid off and she was rewarded by a contract with the renowned Ford Modeling Agency. By age 19, she was supporting herself modeling full time and had garnered the distinction of being the first black model to appear on the cover of Teen Magazine.

She soon had dozens of television guest spots, and completed two television movies for Disney, Tracks of Glory, and one of her most cherished roles, Lilah, in The Liberators, with Robert Carradine. But the part which brings her the most on-the-street recognition is her feature film debut as one of Jason's victims in Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. This lead to roles on L.A. Law and later Days of Our Lives." - Unofficial Renée Jones Site

Update: "She has been nominated five times for the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actress in a Daytime Drama Series for the role." - Wikipedia.org
