Model Jones (no established relation to the criminal Jones Family) was a young woman with whom Junior Tracy had a brief romantic relationship. She was an attractive, slender woman with blonde hair that she wore short.

When Model was still a teenager, she took a job in a local clothing store to help support her troubled family. She had alcoholic parents and a criminal brother named Larry. Junior met Model at a roller skating rink, and developed a strong emotional attachment to her.

When Junior learned of Model's difficult home life, he made plans to run away with her and get married. Model agreed, but she was accidentally killed by Larry before they could leave town. Larry was arrested by Dick Tracy.
