Jon came to Willamette university to begin law school last year from Boise, ID. The summer after his first year of law school, after serving as a law clerk at disability rights Oregon, Jon decided that his interests also includes business and decided to join the MBA program as well. He has dipped his toe in many fields of work over the last 14 years including personal training, construction, bartending/bouncing, sales, wildland firefighting, and much more. The vast majority of his experience, however, is in the field of social work serving the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities. While pursuing a JD/MBA joint degree at Willamette, he also writes/edits for a financial journal, works at the law library, and serves on the board of 2 student organizations and 1 nonprofit. He loves hiking, snowboarding, surfing, camping, fitness, video games, and spending time with friends. He has recently gotten engaged and is working on crafting a fantastic wedding with his partner, Bella, a clinical psychologist in Corvallis.

Why Willamette:

"I chose Willamette for the beautiful location, the top-ranked MBA program,
and proximity to Portland and the coast."
