He grew up in Hopewell Junction, NY. Jon was not interested in the game of bowling as a youth.

His bowling career took off from there. He attended Don Johnson’s PBA bowling camps which helped him with the physical part of the game. Steve and Dave Ferraro are credited with the mental part of the game.

Jon bowled mainly at Southern Dutchess Bowl for most of his leagues but also ventured to Bowling Time and Tarsio Lanes. In the Mid Hudson Bowling Association Jon has had many awards and titles.
