In Biblical History, Jonah is the first prophet to arrive approximately 50-100 years after Elisha and Elijah. He is alive during the ministries of Amos and Hosea and dies shortly before Isaiah arrives on the scene. He appears to be a successful prophet. Did you know he is mentioned in 2 Kings 14:25 (NASB95) — 25 He (Jeraboam II) restored the border of Israel from the entrance of Hamath as far as the Sea of the Arabah, according to the word of the LORD, the God of Israel, which He spoke through His servant Jonah the son of Amittai, the prophet, who was of Gath-hepher.
