Jon was born and raised in San Diego, California. When he was 20 years old he obtained a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Coleman College. While he found working in the field interesting he ultimately found it unfulfilling. Looking for a career where he could have a positive impact on others he returned to school. After deciding on pharmacy he graduated with an ACS certified bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from Southern Oregon University. He chose to return home to complete his education and get his PharmD at University of California, San Diego. In his spare time Jon rides the line between outdoorsman and homebody. He enjoys white water rafting, hiking, camping, reading and gaming (even creating his own board games).
