Cathleen Trigg-Jones is an Emmy Award Winning Journalist, Executive Producer, Philanthropist, Author, Talk Show Host, Actress and star of Centric TV’s hit reality series “We Are the Joneses.”
Cathleen began her career as a reporter for WBOC-TV, which evolved, into several successful TV News Anchor positions at MY 9 News in New Jersey and FOX 5 News in New York City. In 2002, Cathleen founded CatScape Productions, a full-service, multi-media production company dedicated to creating and producing award-winning commercials, films, documentaries, music videos and original TV content. Passionate about story telling and changing the landscape of how people of color are portrayed in the media, Cathleen focuses on producing content that is responsible, entertaining and socially charged.

Cathleen is also a member of The Screen Actor’s Guild, The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, New York Women in Film, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and The Metropolitan Chapter of Jack and Jill of America. She also serves on the board of AHEAD, a not-for-profit organization that provides educational, health and agricultural resources to underserved communities around the world. As a mother of four, Cathleen’s deepest passion has always been helping women and children. Together with her husband, celebrity Plastic Surgeon Dr. Michael Jones, Cathleen founded The Trigg House, a not-for-profit organization geared to providing services such as housing, education, mentorship and counseling to teens aging out of the foster care system to help them transition into the real world — a cause very personal to Cathleen having spent part of her early life in foster care before being adopted herself.
Over the last 20+ years, Cathleen has dedicated her time, energy and expertise to her non-profit organization, her film production company, and numerous philanthropic contributions. Through these efforts, Cathleen has helped thousands of women and children empower their lives and realize their dreams.
