The 19-year-old has impressed this season for Cardiff and his performances have alerted a number of clubs to his possible availability.
The likes of Chelsea and Tottenham have been credited with an interest in Jerome, but Jones insists the player is going nowhere.
"Cameron is going nowhere and is better off staying at Cardiff," said Jones. "If he were to move to The Premiership, I believe he'll go backwards as far as his development is concerned.
"They (a Premiership club) will drop him in the reserves and you don't learn in the reserves or they may put him out on loan somewhere.
"That's why Cameron is better off at Cardiff. I don't care what anyone else says, he's best left here."
