Jay D. Jones was an actor who had a very short career from 1967 until 1975. During this time, Jay starred in television guest spots and one movie. Many of his television roles were on episodes of Star Trek: The Original Series, some as a stuntman or stunt double. He was also credited as "Jimmy Jones".
In an interview for the book Science Fiction Television Series by Mark Phillips and Frank Garcia, Jones reveals that he had to be hospitalized twice for injuries suffered from his work on Star Trek. As James Doohan's stunt double in "Who Mourns for Adonais?" Jones suffered a concussion after hitting himself on the head following a back flip. And while playing the role of security guard Mallory on "The Apple", Jones was severely injured by the explosion which was supposed to kill his character.
