I met Jon through a local chapter of an entrepreneurship and innovation club. Despite being a newcomer like me, he had quickly established himself as an impactful contributor and I purposely sought him out for advice and mentorship. Jon agreed right away to share his time with me and came prepared with multiple resources tailored to my specific passions and goals – truly above and beyond. I offer this little anecdote to illustrate the type of person Jon is…a SELFLESS LEADER, HUMBLE PROFESSIONAL, and COMMUNITY BUILDER. Since our meeting ten months ago, I’ve gotten to know the many projects Jon has undertaken and made a lasting impact on. I’m proud to call him a mentor and friend, and our community and countless members are grateful for his tireless dedication and passion for helping others.

After spending a mere ten days with Jon it is clear to see he will do great things with his knowledge of mindfulness. Jon’s concern for others and desire to spread compassion make him a wonderful mindfulness coach. During our time together, Jon led a group of military Veterans and Olympic athletes through a mindfulness meditation session, and we all walked away feeling more present and at ease. It was a pleasure and an honor to work with Jon, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking to implement a mindfulness program/ practice into their company or personal lives.
I’ve known Jon for over 5 years and we’ve worked together for about half of that time. Bottom line: Jon is a phenomenal leader, tremendous problem- solver, and respected mentor with an IMPECCABLE REPUTATION. I hand-selected Jon to work for me on some of our nation’s most sensitive and difficult operational issues – which he nailed. He is a strategic visionary, critical thinker, and articulate communicator who demonstrates the highest standards of commitment, integrity, and humility every day. He will succeed at whatever endeavor he chooses.
