Jon was born and raised in the Tri-Cities of Michigan where he attended Lutheran elementary school. After graduating high school from Michigan Lutheran Seminary in Saginaw, he attended Dr. Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minnesota. He graduated in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education. He was first assigned right here to King of Kings where he taught grades 5-6 from 1995-2000. From there he accepted a call to teach at Christ the Lord Lutheran in Houston, Texas from 2000-2004. There he taught grades 3-5, then 6-8, and served as the principal of the school for three years as well. In 2004, he accepted a call to teach grades 4-6 at Bay Pines Lutheran in Seminole, Florida, where he has been teaching ever since. He is currently working on attaining his Masters of Science degree with an emphasis on leadership from Martin Luther College.
In 1995, Jon married his wife, Mary. They have four children: Emma, Jacob, Jonah, and Anna.
Jon is very excited to again be a part of the ministry here at King of Kings and is looking forward to sharing the saving Gospel message of Jesus with the children of our school.
