Born and raised in Middleton, Jon has called the 27th District home nearly all his life. Civic involvement and public service have been a part of Jon’s whole life. His Mom Liz taught in Waunakee Schools for over 30 years and his Dad worked for the Department of Public Instruction after he taught Technical Education himself. Jon worked in radio for a number of years including a stint in Portage, Milwaukee and Madison. He has always worked part time when in the Legislature and is proud of the work ethic a part-time job outside the building has given him.
