Jon served in the Marine Corps for 4 years. Deployed to Iraq in 2007 and was medically discharged in 2010.
Jon has volunteered with the Chicago Bridge Project since 2016. He has been a strategic volunteer since 2016 and has several years of volunteer work in social services and recently worked as a Case Manager with Connections for the Homeless. I truly feel that food and housing are the most basic of human rights and no one should ever go hungry or without a place to stay. He has a passion for helping others which stemmed from his time in the military. His vision - teach everyone about the realities of homelessness and end the stigma that exist.
