Ellen Braaten on Gen Jones:
Ellen identifies strongly as a member of Generation Jones, and has commented about different points in the Gen Jones life cycle. In July 2021, she wrote in response to a comment that Gen Jones starts in the mid-1950’s:  “Same! We couldn’t go to Woodstock with a baby sitter. That’s the cutoff.” In February 2022, she wrote: “We graduated from college, hoping for any sort of job without having had any of the fun of the boomers.” And she summed up the Gen Jones  life cycle when she wrote in July 2021: ““We are the people who watched the riots from each of the ends of our lives. In the middle we pretty much behaved ourselves.”
