    Kudo’s to him for living his life so well.

  85. Jon seems like a really knowledgeable person as becoming a certified pilot is no mean feat. I also love how he dedicates so much time to his community, with his charity work epitomising just how great of a person he is.

    It’s not often you can find such a highly talented man so willing to donate his time and efforts to help others, especially young athletes who can use his accomplishments as motivation above and beyond the training he provides.
