In warmer weather, Jon enjoys camping all over the state with family and friends. He also spends time designing, stocking, and maintaining reef aquariums. And he always makes time to spend with his wife and four children, whether vacationing all around the world or accompanying the kids to the bus stop or to their various sports practices and games.
Jon serves as a board member for the Firefly Children’s Initiative, a local non-profit organization that provides financial support and information to prospective adoptive families while working with orphanages and group homes all around the world. He is also a Cub Scouts Den Leader for a local troop of youngsters, planning and supervising many exciting opportunities for instruction and entertainment.
