Jonquel Jones’ partner – is she in a serious relationship?

Jones has openly declared herself a lesbian during the 2019 WNBA All-Star Game. She showed up for the event dressed in a masculine outfit and stated to the media: “I’m openly out and dressing differently,” she said at the time.

Despite that bold move, Jones kept her private life well out of the spotlights for many years. As it turned out she has been in a serious relationship since 2018, but only four years later in July 2022 Jonquel Jones and her long-term partner Nesha announced officially that to the world.

In early July 2022, Jonquel posted on her Instagram page a series of pictures of the happy couple and added the caption: “Thanks for loving me on my lowest days and being there for me through it all. You get my humor. You get my moods, you get it all.”

Several days later Nesha revealed in a TikTok video posted on July 29, 2022, that the couple have been dating since 2018.

Who is Jonquel Jones’ partner and what is she doing for a living?

Jonquel Jones’ partner Nesha is a certified nail technician. She graduated from a nail tech school in January 2023 and without wasting any time she opened her own nail salon called The Doll House Company in Brooklyn, New York.

Nesha seems to be very busy growing her business. She is very active on social media too with lots of her clients at the nail salon finding out about it from her constant TikTok videos or Instagram posts.

Once making their relationship public in mid-2022, Jonquel Jones and her partner Nesha started to appear in public much more often. The two were seen attending a Broadway show in February 2023. There were also pictures of them on holidays together on social media.

Jones and her partner took to Instagram on April 14, 2023, to announce their engagement.

This happened while the couple were on holiday at the Goldwyn Resort in their native homeland – the Bahamas. Ironically, the Bahamas still don’t recognise same-sex marriages so once Jones and Nesha tie the knot their marriage won’t be legitimised in their homeland.

Jonquel Jones’ partner lives with her in Brooklyn, New York. Nesha is busy with developing her nail studio, while Jonquel plays for the New York Liberty.

There is no date set for the wedding but it is widely expected the happy event to take place at some stage in the first half of 2024.
