Originally from upstate New York, Jon found that he was growing tired of the long northeastern winters and decided to give Las Vegas, where he had family, a try. He has now been here for ten years, leaving only for a brief respite in Knoxville, TN. Jon discovered SkyWire through a college acquaintance turned close friend: SkyWire’s VP of Strategic Accounts.
In college, he majored in broadcasting with aspirations of becoming a Sportscaster, and although that was not the path he followed in the end, he still loves sports. He regularly golfs, loves college basketball, and in the summertime, Jon travels and sees baseball games in different ballparks around the country.
While he won’t refer to him as a prized, “possession”, Jon is most attached to his 7-year old American Bulldog, Harley, who has travelled across the country with him on more than one occasion.
