Jon was a graduate of John I. Leonard High School, Class of 1985, and attended Palm Beach Community College. He was active in sports both in and out of school. Entrepreneurial by nature, Jon was finding and selling golf balls at the age of 8. By the time he was 19, he was owner and president of Consolidated Attorney Services, Inc., which served summonses, subpoenas and other legal documents. This scholarship fund was established by Jon’s parents following his fatal automobile accident.
“Somebody said it couldn't be done,
But he with a chuckle replied
That maybe it couldn't
But he would be one
Who wouldn't say no until he'd tried.
So he buckled right in
With the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he
Tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and HE DID IT.”
"Jon worked hard and came to each meeting prepared to assist the committee in its deliberations and was always offering to assist in furthering the goals of the committee. Not only did we find Jon to be diligent and professional in all respects, we enjoyed his company and working with him.”
