Hi, I'm Jon.
WHERE I COME FROM
Born in Albany, OR, I'm a working, single father, proudly raising my daughter who currently attends middle school in Bend. After my career took me to Seattle and we lost her mom, I moved back to Oregon to be with my family - my parents and brother - and Bend is our home. My daughter and I are active skiers in the winter and paddle boarders and skateboarders in the summer, and I also enjoy cycling and running.
ACCOUNTING & RESPONSIBILITY
I'm a graduate of Walla Walla University with a Bachelor of Science in Accounting , and alum of Jesuit High School in Beaverton, OR, where I competed on the track team. My professional experience is cost & financial accounting for manufacturing and agricultural companies, and I'm currently a Financial Analyst for St. Charles Health System.
Because of my background in finance, I know what works and how to improve organizations. I will focus on optimizing the things that work, and eliminating the obstacles that hinder our kids’ success. I believe we have to act fast and decisively to help our youth rebound from a year disrupted by the pandemic.
Education is essential.
With over a year of lockdowns and school closures, parents know the price that's been paid — our kids have been put at a tremendous disadvantage in terms of education and social-emotional development. I'm committed to getting them back to school.
