Hi, I'm Jon

WHERE I COME FROM

I was born in Arizona to loving Christian parents. We then moved to California where I was raised and have spent most of my life.  After graduating from College, I married my wife Nancy and moved to Yucaipa in 1997. We are Christians that value Biblical principles and church involvement.

A THRIVING CAREER

I began my career with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department in 2001. At the completion of the academy and graduation, I was assigned to work in custody. In 2006, I transferred to the City of Yucaipa where I patrolled and was a part of the community for approximately 11 years. During my time here, I had the honor of serving by being involved in community events such as:  Farmer's Market, Autumn Festival, Bicycle Rodeo, Operation Santa Claus, Adopt -A-Deputy for the YCUSD elementary schools, Read Across America, Every 15 Minutes Program, and many others. One of the most enjoyable things about working in Yucaipa was the opportunities I had to meet and develop a rapport with the various residents, business owners and city officials.

 

In 2017, I accepted a position at the Fontana Sheriff Station as a Search & Rescue Coordinator for the West Valley Search and Rescue Team in the Mount Baldy area. During the two years I had the privilege of working with this team, I managed over 40 search and rescues and was able to help many people.

 

I transferred to the Sheriff’s Headquarters in San Bernardino in 2019 where I am currently assigned. I have the honor of working closely with many county employees, local law enforcement agencies, elected officials, State and Federal employees through various investigations, events, and instructional opportunities.

 

Over the years, I have met, listened to, and worked with many people from our local area to around the world with various viewpoints. Due to my years of service and community involvement, I believe it has helped prepare me for my next step to serve on the Yucaipa City Council.
