After the 2008 IIHF World Championship in Canada, he was invited to a summer camp with the Chicago Blackhawks. But on 21 June 2008, he was drafted by the Colorado Avalanche of the National Hockey League in the sixth round as the 170th overall pick. Returning to Sweden Holøs played in 55 games and recorded 8 goals for 16 points. Färjestad's General Manager, Thomas Rundqvist, stated before the 2009 Playoff finals that Holøs was the player who had evolved the most in the 2008–09 season, and that the Avalanche wanted him already in the autumn of 2009. But Holøs stated that he had a two-year contract with Färjestad, which he intended to fulfill.
He played two seasons with Växjö Lakers HC of the SHL. After that, he played two next seasons with Lokomotiv Yaroslavl of the KHL. In 2015, he signed again with Färjestad BK. In 2017-2019, Holøs played in Swiss NLA for HC Fribourg-Gottéron. Since 2019, he plays again in SHL for Linköping HC.
Holøs was first selected to play international hockey for Norway at the junior level in the 2004 World Under-18 IIHF Championships in Belarus. Developing as an allround defenceman Jonas became a fixture on the Norwegian defense, making his full men's international debut at the 2006 World Championships in Latvia, playing in all 6 games.
After playing in 4 consecutive World Championships Holøs was chosen and made his Olympic debut at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, despite placing last in their group and eliminated by Slovakia in the Qualifying playoffs, Jonas led the entire Tournament for average ice-time per game. At the following 2010 World Championships in Germany, he scored his first full international goal when he opened the scoring in a 12-1 drubbing to Canada on May 14, 2010. Upon completion of the Championships he was again the tournamnet leader in average ice-time and was named among the Norwegian best in a ninth place finish.
