LoreeJon Hasson (formerly LoreeJon Jones) began playing billiards at the age of 4 at her home in Garwood, New Jersey. Recognizing her talent, her father built wooden boxes around the table so she would be the correct height for him to teach her the sport. Her father was her instructor, and her mother became her daily practice partner. She ran her first rack of balls at age 5. Hasson performed her first three trick shots at age 6 in Chicago at a men's World Straight Pool tournament.
