Jon is originally from Texas but grew up playing hockey in Detroit and Chicago before moving back to Texas at the age of 16. He has coached travel hockey since 1999 for mite, squirt and peewee age groups for the DJHA, Alliance. Dallas Jr Stars and Texas Aces programs. Jon has also been coaching high school hockey since 2008 for Frisco and Plano teams and is currently the head coach of Plano West JV team.
He enjoys coaching the younger age groups because of the opportunity to introduce and teach the basics of hard work, team play and accountability. On the ice, you will see him not just running drills, but also explaining the reason and relevance of each drill and how it relates to game situations. Jon considers coaching the young groups as much a teaching opportunity as it is basic coaching.
Jon is a financial advisor with Willowbrook Wealth Management and resides in southeast Frisco with wife Janet and two daughters, Megan (13) and Ashley (10).
