Jon spent part of his early childhood in Portland, Oregon but moved to Seattle when he started elementary school. Jon attended various parochial schools including Our Lady of Lourdes and O’Dea.

Jon was an extremely remarkable young man who by the age of 18 had his Single Engine

The couple welcomed a child, Jennifer, in 1976. They decided they needed a larger nest and moved from Kirkland to Redmond and they still reside in the same home. Jon returned to Boeing for a total of 32 years of service as an Engineer and as a Test and Evaluation Engineering Manager.
