Jon moved to Mendocino County in 1998, where he and his wife, Tiffany, began their journey of raising their 3 boys, Connor, Carter and Aaron—recent addition includes Kenzie and their grandson, Carson (Carter and Kenzie's son). Jon and his family have been integral members of our community, since first arrival.
Jon has more than 25 years of combined experience in county politics, community involvement, conflict resolution, project management and financial service businesses. Politically, he is a fiscally conservative and socially liberal non-partisan leader who is committed to doing the right thing for our community. Jon is a critical thinker with proven problem solving abilities under some of the most difficult work conditions.
Jon is extremely passionate about public service and the needs of our communities. Jon's professional career has been largely spent in the private sector, both in private business ventures and in high-level management positions. Despite his experience in the private sector, he's no stranger to the local government scene. When Jon and his family decided to relocate to be closer to he and his wife's family in the mountains over a decade ago, he was elected County Supervisor for Plumas County. Jon was a successful leader with a keen sense of budgetary responsibility. When it came time to seek an additional term, Jon and his family decided to instead, return to their home and their children's roots—Mendocino County.
Jon and his son run a local insulation business, but where you'll mostly see him, is out and about helping families who lost their homes in the recent wildland fires. Jon started a Non-Profit Corporation, Rebuilding Now, Inc. where they help property owners who were uninsured or severely underinsured, who can't afford to hire a contractor, rebuild their homes. This is just one example of how Jon is putting Mendocino County first.
