Jon went on to earn his bachelor’s degree in Leadership, an MBA certificate, is a certified Senior Professional in Human Resources and has managed numerous businesses in remodeling, business consulting, real estate, and organic products. He moved to Montana in 1987 where he and his wife Lynda raised / are raising their four children and their two dogs, Buddy and Polo.
