Star Jones Biography

Star Jones is an attorney, former New York city homicide prosecutor, business executive, best-selling author, and an Emmy award nominated TV host.

On January 31, 2022, President Joe Biden appointed Jones as the Chair of the United States Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad. As Chair she will lead a Commission of twenty Commission Members to preserve and protect American heritage abroad.

Jones served as President and Board of Directors member of Professional Diversity Network, Inc., and of the International Association of Women. She is also a co-founder and principal of the Instant Impact Group, LLC, a consultancy firm that assists individuals and companies build their diversity, equity, and inclusion programs. Through her consultancy firm, Jones also acts as Executive Editor for Marquis Who’s Who. She was one of the original co-hosts of ABC’s “The View” for nine years and is a “Broadcasting and Cable” Hall of Fame inductee.

After work as a prosecutor and senior assistant district attorney early in her career, Jones will become the host and new judge of Divorce Court this fall.

In 2010, Jones underwent successful open-heart surgery and, for over a decade, she has been the National Volunteer of the American Heart Association. She is a member of the international editorial board of the Women’s Forum for the Economy & Society and is a U.S. representative to the Women in Africa initiative. She is also a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and hosts international virtual town hall and forum series.

Star Jones Speaking Topics

  • Stand for Something or You'll Fall for Anything

  • Lessons from the Heart

    Star Jones thought she was doing everything right: her breathing had improved tremendously since successful weight loss surgery; she was practicing portion control and exercising regularly. But she wasn't feeling right • a dragging fatigue had overtaken her and she was experiencing shortness of breath and intermittent pain and heart palpitations. So, after a few weeks of troubling symptoms, Jones went to the doctor, where extensive testing confirmed what she had hoped never to hear: she had cardiovascular disease and needed open heart surgery.

    A week before her 48th birthday, doctors performed open heart surgery on Jones, stopping her heart for 22 minutes. She emerged complication free and dedicated to taking care of her heart and her body. Jones spent the five years that followed getting herself in the best physical and emotional health possible, including grueling cardiac rehab, and now counts heart health as her new mission in life. She competed on The Celebrity Apprentice on behalf of The American Heart Association and has been named the organization's National Volunteer. In her inspiring, personal talk, Jones urges audiences to remember the proverb she now lives by: "She who has health has hope, and she who has hope has everything."
