    Generation Jones - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Generation Jones is a term used to describe the generation of people born between 1954 and 1965. The term is used primarily in English-speaking countries and Western Europe, although it is used to some degree globally.[1][2][3] The birth years typically used in the U.S. are 1954-1965, but these tend to vary slightly in other countries, usually starting no earlier than 1953, and ending no later than 1969.

    I guess the Gen Jones are the ones that didn't get a name by the media yet, so someone thought it was time!
