A product of Eureka, California, Jon grew up playing basketball and tennis. A graduate of UC Berkeley and Cornell University’s Johnson School of Management, he has been a financial executive at IBM and Mass Mutual. A longtime member of the Field Club in Longmeadow, MA, Jon captained the USTA Men’s 40 and over team “The Enfield Slammers” on its first trip to Nationals in 2018, and just missed a second trip in 2022 as the New England Section Championship runner-ups. A recent convert to pickleball, his goal is to eventually teach and grow the game in Hawaii and South Korea (retirement destinations). Relatively uncultured by background, his wife, Jean and daughter, Julia have forced him into a reluctant acceptance of afternoon tea, James Beard restaurants, Broadway musicals, museums, and travel—which is likely where you will find him when not working or playing pickleball!
